With tons of thanks to Tuus, I got to install my new T7700 today.

Plugged it in, new thermal paste and a new thermal pad and it's golden. My first CPU upgrade.

Just a shot of my drafting table/workspace.

Nice work area. I like the lighting as well.
I also like the whisky on the edge of the table, raises morale for some projects. :banana:

Nice work setup. I love the lamp you have on the back edge. I assume it has a swing arm.

Regarding the tobacco and booze. These are required tools. Let no one tell you otherwise.

The table is an old 1930's oak drafting table I bought 15 years ago. The lamp is a 1960ish swing arm drafting lamp I picked up at an abandoned American Express office shortly after 9/11. (its a long story).
