Welcome aboard! 😁
That's quite a sizeable collection you have there =) . If you need any tips on how to store all that or have some tips to share yourself, feel free to do so. And of course pics are always welcome as well 😜
What kind of projects do you have on mind? And what projects have you already worked on before?
I have all the CPU/MoBo/VGA listed in a Google Sheet (one page for category) with item ID and various fields (model, year etc.)
Each item has a label with the ID and it's stored in a box, in it's own static-shielding bag. In front of each box I have a list of the IDs (=boards) inside.
This way if I need, let's say the ASUS V9560/TD for something, I know exactly where to look 😀
Of course there are some exceptions, you know, stuff floating around for various reasons, exposed on shelves or simply in use, but the majority of the items is safely stored 😉
The RAM modules are not labeled, but for each type I have a drawer with the best ones in front (lowest CL etc.) and the rest behind
If you have tips to improve they are welcome!
Regarding pics, I already have some and will post them, along with new ones, in the various/appropriate threads but if you are interested you can take a look at my gallery
on Instagram ( https://www.instagram.com/framebuffer10/ )
At the moment I just completed the first project, which was very important for me because it was a re-build of my first computer.
If you want to have a look it's on my website ( https://framebuffer.io/ )
I plan many follow-up for this, one for each upgrade I did to my rig in 2000, 2001, 2002...up to the C2Q6600 period I think
This week I'm working on a Overclocked GeForce2 MX400 vs GeForce2 GTS comparison, which I hope will be interesting, since the MX400 is an ASUS V7100PRO with 4ns EtronTech memories 😁
I also plan to do a series of "What did you needed to play ------- at launch in YxZ resolution at full details" for the most famous and technically interesting games
Another one in queue is dual Tualatin 1.4GHz vs Pentium 4 2.8GHz. Silly I know, but will be fun 😁
So things like that, along with some more classic comparison/test stuff maybe
