"Tchicaya" (in line with my naming scheme) was my desktop computer from 2008 to about 2011. It was the first desktop machine I'd built for a long time.


Intel DG35EC motherboard, with the following features:

  • G35 chipset
  • GMA X3500 video
    • DX10
    • supported by the F/OSS driver

Apparently it idled at around 58W.

I opted for a quad core 2.4Ghz Intel Core 2 Duo processor to complement it.
