The liquid cooled PC project is in progress. Boring wiring  #watercooled #spectrumv8 #liquidcooling #pcmods #watercooledpc #ihatewires #custompc #extremepc
If the liquid cooled PC project will fail at least I'll get a fancy BBQ grill. :) "Sinclair ZX Spectrum 48K" is used as a reference for #inspiration #vintagecomputer #classiccomputer #retrotech #oldcomputer #watercooled #zxspectrum #spectrumv8 #liquidcooling #pcmods
The liquid cooled PC desk project "Spectrum V8" is still in progress. Moving slowly in the summer. "Sinclair ZX Spectrum 48K" is used as a reference for #inspiration #vintagecomputer #classiccomputer #retrotech #oldcomputer #watercooled #zxspectrum #spectrumv8 #liquidcooling #pcmods

The project that I named "Spectrum V8" has been started. It's named after one of the most popular in 80s gaming home computer Sinclair ZX Spectrum. My new L-shaped home office desk looks boring but it has a glass top. I want to convert it into liquid cooled PC desk where all parts will be mounted under the glass top. This way I will save on buying new PC case and floor space under the desk :) My old home computer is dying and can be qualified to be a part of my antique collection soon. Same time "Spectrum V8" will be a gaming computer for my son. I want him to play something with a name  Spectrum too as I did when I was a teenager. The original ZX Spectrum on the picture is following the project. Join him :) #vintagecomputer #classiccomputer #retrotech #oldcomputer #watercooled #zxspectrum #spectrumv8 #liquidcooling #pcmods

Radio-86RK replica soldered by me earlier. I inserted the motherboard into SilverStone mini-itx case. The logo "Intel inside" is a true. I found working I8080 on Ebay. The replica has almost the same set of chips as the original Radio-86RK designed for Russian hobbyists in 1986 and schematics were published in "Radio" magazine for do-it-yourself assembly. The main difference is a memory. The replica has just one 32Kb SRAM memory chip instead of 16 DRAM chips. I soldered an optional PS/2-to-Radio-86RK keyboard converter and skipped the original keyboard for this replica. The schematics can be found on http://radio86rk.pbworks.com #radio86rk #homecomputer #classiccomputer #retrocomputer #russiancomputer #retrotech #oldcomputer #oldtechnology #loderunner

Macintosh Portable, 1989-1991. Nonworking. The motherboard has ugly traces of sticky substance which is actually a liquefied, because of it's age, seal between HDDs halves. Recap is needed also. I like the etched signatures of Apple design team inside the case. Will try to repair #vintagecomputer #classiccomputer #retrocomputer #restoration #retrotech #oldtech #applecomputer #oldcomputer #oldlaptop #macintosh
Macintosh Portable, 1989-1991. First battery-powered Macintosh in terrible condition. The expert team is making very difficult decision whether we want to repair or not ;) To fix, or not to fix? That is the question. Will fix #vintagecomputer #classiccomputer #retrocomputer #restoration #retrotech #oldcomputer #macintosh #apple
