After having one of our hard drives self combust, another one die and the graphics card fan pop a barring it was time to upgrade it, after all it must be 5 years since i buildt it and it has been running almost ever since…

So I took all he old IDE hard drives out and put in one Raptor drive for OS and webhost and two others for backup and other things.

Some old crap that will most likely be put to rest on the evergreen hunting grounds (or the recycle bin but don’t tell them that)

Hard at work saving the data that was on them.

Here’s how the drive looked after it was done barbecuing itself

While I was at it I bought a few new chassis fans too keep the new drives cold

Old noisy ones on the left new and silent one on the right….
