While building my MAME cabinet and sorting out the various motherboards in my posession, I got a bit bored and started taking random photos. Electronics are interesting close up, this image shows some surface mount resistors on the back of a motherboard, their positioning looking like a small town.
I took other pictures and they are on my photos website, so have a look at an iBook Logic Board and iBook 3GB Hard Disk fromwhen I upgraded a tangerine first generation iBook’s hard disk (which takes a mere 30 steps).
There are also images of an Intel Celeron CPU before adding heat paste and after adding heat paste (yes, I put on more than that, don’t worry… I know how to apply heat paste to CPUs). And some very dusty power regulation electronics on a PC motherboard plus a nice abstract shot of the underside of three PCI expansion slots.
