Hi man, I just want to know, do you clean and change the thermal grease of the north and south bridges during your restorations? It helps in system performance in general. ;)

1:53 into the video the BIOS screen clearly shows the CPU speed being detected as 1.4 GHz...This is weird as I don't believe there ever was a consumer board released with hardwired CPU speed limit. Since this is obviously an OEM product it might be that the BIOS is an OEM version also with some pages and setting hidden. What most likely causes this mis-detection is the Intel SpeedStep function turned ON in the bios settings without means for the end user to turn it off, the aforementioned hidden page. If that is the case then windows about page should mention SpeedStep as being ON. There are utilities out there to switch it OFF even for OEM BIOSes. The feature itself is useless and If I'm wrong then this is one seriously weird board with an artificial limitation that serves no purpose...

Maby they upgradet to this pentium 4 because of the hyperthreading, maby they used some application that benefitted more from the second threat that this cpu offered than just the raw speed

With all respect, I do not see the point of restoring this kind of PC...no vintage value at all, just waste of time. Better invest the time, effort and hobbie-work with a real value vintage computer.

Easiest way is to soak in WD-40 diluted in mineral oil because these are cleansing agent but none conductive. It's important to play with these things outside with protection because WD-40 is posion. Dry PC in rice for 3 days .

This video was very satisfying to watch! However, when you said those computers were from around 2002-2003 and then said you remember using them in primary school, that made me feel ancient lol. In 2002-2003 I was 19 and a freshman in college!

I have the same computer I used when I was a kid, almost 20 years ago. It was a 10GB hard drive that had Windows XP in it. It was actually meant to run Windows 95. Around 2015, my brother tried to rebuild it, but did a terrible job. It was around the time I finished building my first PC and used what I learned to rebuild the PC. So, I fixed all of the mistakes my brother did and did a complete overhaul after my parents let me keep it. Fast forward today, it uses Windows 95 (US and Japanese) along with new RAM, PSU a new AGP card and new HDDs (literally new in box too!) I have some plans for this computer, which involves a SCSI PCI card.

I just clicked on this out of curiosity while eating supper. I found your cleaning ideas very helpful. However in my case before I touch any of these to much once it is in my house, I wipe it all down on the outside with a paper towel with window cleaner on it. Now the interesting part was this case design. about 8 years ago a fellow I worked with said his church was given all of these computers and they really did not want them and so I asked my sister who home schools many children she adopted, and she did want them. There were 7 of these computers. They were windows 95, 98 era, all having a 450 or 500 MHz processor. I was able to bump all of them up to 1000 MHz and Windows XP. Now the unique point was the case style. Almost the same design as this one at 3:59 with this other sound board on the front. However the ones I had did not include the lights or the buttons for the computer functions, only the volume control and the mic and headphone and USB jacks. The ones I had had a wider case and a regular full size ATX power supply, and two speakers on the front and option for two CD/DVD drives and the floppy was sideways in the middle with the hard drive mounted next to it. However it was apparently wired in to some larger control system using a large parallel 25 pin plug on the back. I was able to find a place to connect to the front of the amplifier and put a stereo wire with 1/8" stereo plug on it and plugged it in the back line out and that allowed the stereo amp and speakers to work with the computer. Funny seeing one close to that design.

You were lucky, the PSU worked properly. I tried to restore one 20 years old Dell. Since it was left in a humid place for a long time I cleaned up everything before putting power on but made one mistake. The old PSU doesn't have enough power out put and outright killed the original HDD. I didn't have a spare IDE drive so I had to stop there. Lesson learnt, the hard way: Always test with a known good PSU. Luckily the MB was saved. Later on I salvaged some data for a guy using this old MB. Edit: typo

looking for a similar computer, although it was a generic custom build (diy). it must have been around 1999, whenever the pentium 3 600mhz came out. the one i'm looking for is a celeron 500, and it was built in a box that looked like the one in the vid, but about 1/3 the height and 3/4 of the width (about as wide as the dvd drive + a little more). it was tiny. it had a green plastic aesthetic on beige casing. would love to find the case somewhere.

The reason why they "upgraded" the CPUs is because they want students to have a very painful time with loading speeds.

See something like a Radeon 9600 XT or an GeForce FX 5900 Ultra would turn this into a good gaming rig for DX8 and pre-2006 DX9 games.

Its always good when old technology gets re-used or recycled or properly e-wasted instead of going into landfill or the garbage. I do (or at least did before everything went pear shaped) volunteer disassembly work at a facility in Brisbane that takes apart e-waste and its always good when things can be re-used (or at the very least properly e-wasted and recycled) instead of ending up in landfill.
