When you can’t wait for the PC cases to arrive but you want to use your computers

So, yesterday I moved, and I began building my computers. The only thing I didn’t ship was the PC cases as the shipping would be pretty high, and instead, I shipped the parts separately. Then, yesterday I built them and ordered brand-new cases for them.

ATI Radeon HD 2400 PRO Overclock

Hi everyone, Today, I’m showing you my Overclock settings for the ATI Radeon HD 2400 PRO video card I’m using to run some BOINC Workunits. Yes, the GPU is old, but it still works, so why not using it to crunch some BOINC workunits and help in some projects? Yes, it may not be power efficient as newer GPUs, but again, it still works. Will I replace it later? Most likely yes. When? I don’t yet know, but possibly when…
