Post your PC part junk drawer thread!


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Didn't see one of these on here yet so I'll get it started. Post your junk drawer!

 

Mine has been migrated as the drawer kept getting stuck shut so I changed it to a now very sad looking box.

 

I've got a random LG G7 smart phone in there, 2x 4gb sticks of DDR4, about a dozen sata cables of different length, case fan cable extenders, replacement case feet, and more stuff beyond that than even I know what to do with.

Old fan box. I have a 5500rpm thicc Delta in there and on top is a Yate Loon 230mm fan that would probably be good for benching.

Spare cables box. There's a lot in there but most of it is black and the lighting was bad. I could retake it with flash if anyone cares, just ask.

2nd spare cables box with speaker wire, some is normal and the roll I believe is 12 or 14 gauge and I used it to wire up my subwoofer (Polk Audio PSW-505, blown speaker, put a DVC car sub in instead with this wire in series)

Dead console and controller box. The drive in my silver slimline PS2 failed. I got a replacement but it's black. Thinking about doing either a drive or case swap, but I don't know the internals of a PS2 like I know the Dreamcast, which is actually fully modular.

That's it aside from my boxes full of game systems, game systems boxes, pc hardware boxes, and keyboards in my storage. But those aren't dead so they don't really count.

Glad I'm not alone in this... when it comes to electronics I'm a bit of a hoarder..  I swear this box full of IDE cables will be of use to me in the future as will the hard drives manufactured in the 90's....

They're of use if you get the itch to build a Win9X build. 🙂  🤣

I'm still using a rooted V60. It's still perfectly capable as a daily driver, unlike my V20 which was extremely sluggish before I switched over to the V60 in 2022. I only use the V20 as a remote control for my lights now.

 

At some point in the future when apps widely deprecate the version of Android I have on the V60, I'll get a used Sony Xperia 1 that's a generation behind the latest and deal with whatever modding necessary to get it fully functional on my carrier network.

Old parts from my LG G4, including all available backplates (white, blue, gold, and the original factory leather). I have everything except the phone itself because both my original and warranty replacement G4 bootlooped.

 

20240528_103529(Large).thumb.jpg.28b24cfa15d4a889142a34b053f9bb9d.jpg

The ThinkPad T43 that I benched to the lowest score in the CPU-Z competition here a couple of years ago, loose Cat 5E cables that have no use anymore because I now use unbooted Cat 6 cables going into my new network switch, and a USB floppy drive that I actually plan to keep around as long as I still have several boxes of 3.5" floppy disks that are probably unreadable anyway since they're magnetic media that have been in storage for 25 years.

 

There's far more junk lying around that I haven't taken pictures of yet, but I intend to take most of it to e-waste recycling. I don't like keeping things around for the maybe scenarios that never actually come to fruition. I've already taken HDMI 1.1/1.2 and random odds-and-ends coaxial cables cut by the cable company to recycling. I don't want that crap.
