I have had computers at home since the 80s. I used to work in those days in Nokia Electronics computer factory. I was mostly building cash registers and cash register systems.

During the years I have had computers running with i8085, i80286,  i386, i486, Pentium (60MHz), Pentium Pro (200 MHz), Pentium II, Pentium III, AMD Sempron and so on. I have about 20 different processors which I have kept after disassembling the old computers. I have never bought a branded machine from a shop. The first one I even soldered myself, all components to the motherboard. After that I have built the computers from scratch buying the motherboards, processors, memories, power supplies, cases and built them then myself.

Processors have been either AMD or Intel depending the prize or performance of the processor. At the moment I have two PCs at home, my older machine runs by overclocked Intel Q6600 (overclocked from 2,4 MHZ to 3,5 GHz) and the operating system is Linux, Ubuntu Studio.

My Windows PC, which I built in spring 2013, runs by water cooled Intel i7-3770K overclocked to about 4,4 GHz. Hard disks are in RAID 0 setup having reading and writing speed about the double what a single drive can offer.
