Motherboard finally arrived – NAS Project – Update #3

I got the motherboard, replaced the thermal paste. And it works!

So it is time to test it, i had a live USB Debian laying around so decided to test the motherboard with that. As you can see the heatsink and fan is really big, and the temperature was around 30 – 35 degrees Celsius, and 45 with the fan unplugged. I did some web browsing, watched some youtube videos, and i am impressed that old computer parts still works that good, it is a Pentium dual core 3 GHz, but still old and amazing.

So the next ting i will be waiting for is the SSD, the PCIe card, need to get a case and a power supply (could not find any old ones). Follow my blog to see how my NAS build goes.
