The Phenom is clocked at 3.0GHz, 1.44v, it does clock to 3.15GHz ish with 1.55v, but didn't want to fry a museum piece from overvoltage. RAM I believe is clocked at 416Mhz or DDR2-833, 5-5-5-15 timings. GPU is stock clocked because vintage.

Windows 10 x64 is on there temporarily. Rig is intended to run Windows Vista. It'll run Windows 10 until I can build a different vintage rig that can get online with a ZIP drive and DVDRW.
