Today I finished working on an old amd sempiron *chough semiporn cough* cpu. It had roughly over 100 bent pins. 2 fell off but I can resurrect it with pencil shavings and a dead celeron m. It barely fits into the cpu socket. I also delided and lapped both sides of the ihs with 250 and 1000 grit sandpaper. I plan to put it in an old dell my buddy owns along with a partitioned 40gb hdd as a nas after I buy it from him.
cpu was only a little worse
my new ish nzxt fan fell apart, and nzxt being how amazing they are are sending me a new one. 1 blade fell off the 120 mm fan so i clipped 2 more and made an evenly balanced fan that vibrates a bit. better than in the trash.
