I finally got around to upgrading the PSU, swapped it for a 500W PC Power and Cooling MKIII, the one with 24a on both the 3.3 and 5 volt rails.
I'll post a photo later when I get a chance.
I was going to mention the PSU, but happy to see that you already replaced it =)
Very nice to see someone use this iconic (and heavy!) ATX tower case! Legendary back in its day and it seems archaic for how modern it really was back when it was new.
I only found 2 of those towers fairly recently and never ended up using one for a build (perhaps one day).
And nice to see someone make an RDRAM P3 build =)
Yours is much faster than my own RDRAM P3 build (using a slot 1 933MHz iirc), but mine was (from what I read about how much trouble you had setting yours up) almost effortlessly to build up after I had swapped the motherboard with another one.
Nice, clean and lean setup.
Btw, you still noticing any significant differences when you upgraded to your 80GB from your 30GB Quantum potato? 😜
