It's not as if I made recent wholesale changes. My desktop console was 5 years old in 2009 and I used it for another 4 years. Its replacement has been in service since 2013 and has been extensively upgraded/maintained over that time. With any luck it should be good for another couple of years. The only thing I've done recently was replace a worn wifi keyboard and mouse. Monitor and speakers are a few years old but still OK.

I'd love to have NVME and USB 3 but right now the older technology still serves me well.

With SSDs in your server, it's usually just the fans that are pulling all the current. Solid state devices (mobo components, SSDs, vid card components, etc.) don't draw that much current. Fans, on the other hand will SUCK UP THE JUICE.

Here's the temporary setup until I finish trimming.  Will replace the rickety table with something more solid and I'll get a decent chair too.  Anyway, it's what it is for now.deskie001.jpg
