This may be a familiar story as it seems many people got started this way - Quake 3 had just been released and my "smoking fast machine" I had purchased the year before (P3 500MHz with 256M RAM and ATI Rage Fury) was not up to the task. So, on Feburary 23, 2000 I decided to tear the machine down and add some cooling - you can guess what is coming ;)

Here is the machine at the start of the project - kinda messy in there.

I have seperated the individual projects for this machine into four sections:

Case Mods

CPU Mods

Video Card Mods
