About a month or two ago I bought a Falcon Northwest Fragbox. It was unmolested. Came with the original buildsheet, mousepad, folder, recovery disc, original box, etc. I thought it was a pretty good deal. Still hoping to find something they built around the year 2000.

It ran at 65db at idle. Got a let people at the LAN know the power that's inside. I couldn't stand how loud it was so I started molesting it. Saved all the original stuff. Got it down to 45db at idle.

The CPU paste so fossilized that when I tried take off the heatsink, the CPU just came with it. And of course it launched when I separated it. Straightened the pins with magnifying glass and an xacto. And everything works.

They were quite a common site at lan parties back in the day. I remember going to quite a few back in highschool and at least a few people had these systems. Man I miss the days of old school lan parties ah the good ole days
