Description

This machine started out its life in February 2010 as a FreeNAS box, built around an AMD X2 4200+ CPU, an Asrock 939A785GMH/128M motherboard and 4GB Hynix DDR400 memory.

In August 2010 the machine was reassembled as a workstation using a new motherboard (Asus M4A88TD-M EVO/USB3) and upgrade parts from serenity (including the AMD Phenom II X6 1090T BE).

In June 2013 the machine was upgraded to an Intel Core I7-4770K and a Asus Gryphon Z87 Motherboard. The old core was re-assembled in August 2013 in a new Cooler Master Elite 310 tower and then sold to a new owner (1090T / M4A88TD-M / 8 GB / HD5770 / Kingston 64 GB SSD / 1TB Seagate HDD / Card Reader / DVDRW).

In December 2013 the machine was converted to an all UEFI setup for Linux and Windows and a liquid cooler was installed.

In March 2014 the Apple SSD received from defiance was replaced with a Samsung 830 SSD received from the same machine.

In July 2016 the liquid cooler was removed again and the original Zalman CNPS 10X Extreme was re-installed.

In December 2017 the original 3x 1TB Western Digital Black HDDs (all manufactured in November 2009) were retired and replaced with a new 4TB Toshiba X300 Hard Drive and a 2TB Western Digital Green Hard Drive (re-activated from stock)

In October 2018 the Asus GTX 760 Graphics Card was replaced with an MSI GTX 1060 Graphics Card.

In December 2018 the computer was upgraded to a 6-core I5-8600K running with 32GB RAM on the Z370 platform, introducing ultra-fast storage in the form of 2x 1TB NVMe SSDs. Some replaced components were sold on eBay.
