My original Abit KR7A-Raid has finally given up the ghost. Amid bulging main socket caps and a blown square solder pad at the north end of the memory slots she breathed her last and was pronounced just before 3pm this afternoon.
That board was voltage modded almost 8 years ago, has been running overclocked hard 24/7 ever since and has survived merciless abuse including one major aquatic disaster when the acrylic back plate on my copper water block at the time cracked and water was sprayed all over it while it was running.
I will be mounting this faithful motherboard in a frame and putting it up on my wall.
Services will be held tomorrow.
