SEPTEMBER 2015... AS JTDX IS SUPPORTS MULTIPLE CORES, I NEEDED MORE MATH POWER, SO I RECYCLED 3 PC'S TO BUILD 1.
[CASE AND FANS FROM #1, MOTHERBOARD FROM #2 AND BRACKETS, CABLES AND PSU FROM #3] TO ONE.
FOR SURE IT'S AN UGLY SOB ...BUT "FRANKENSTEIN" [ NAMED AFTER A GERMAN EGO TRIPPING HAM ] SEEMS TO DO THE JOB.
"FRANKENSTEIN" IS A QUAD CORE - 8 THREAD 3.9 GHZ [SET @ 3.5 GHZ] I-7 3770 WITH 32 GB RAM RUNNING @ 1600MHZ + 2 SSD DRIVES.

THE OLD XP SYSTEM [ GUTS & GORE ARE SHOWN IN THE SEVENTH PHOTO ] WAS A FANCY 2GHZ AMD AND 2 GB RAM AND SLOW HD DRIVES.
TIME SYNC WAS DONE WITH D4TIME VIA ADSL BUT WAS ALLWAYS 0.5 SECONDS OFF.

MARCH 2017... FINISHED THE NEW BUILD OF FRANKENSTEIN, FULL ALUMINIUM CASE BY "LIAN LI" WITH AN EXTRA FRONT AIR INTAKE.
NEW COOLERS [IN, OUT AND CPU FAN] AND REPLACED THE 650 WATT PSU BY A LEPA MAXBRON B1000 PSU.
THE PSU DOESN'T RUN AS HOT AS THE OLD PSU AND OVERALL TEMP ON ALL COMPONENTS HAS LOWERED BY 10 DEG. RUNNING FULL BORE.
RUNNING 2 INSTANCES OF JTALERT-X/JTDX 18.x.x.x + 2 INSTANCES OF WSPR 4.0 R6470 AND GRIDTRACKER BY N0TTL...

USING 2 MICROKEYER III DEVICES AND 2 MICROHAM USB III DEVICES AT 10% CPU AND 20% RAM USAGE MAX!.
TIME SYNC NOW IS DONE WITH A 10 BUCK USB GPS, WORKING WITH SOFTWARE BY IZ2BKT GETTING ONLY 0.001S OFF OR LESS.
ALSO ADDED A 5 PORT USB CARD FOR THE 4 MICROHAM DEVICES TO HAVE THEIR OWN "NAMED" PORT.

"FRANKENSTEIN 2.0"
