    I was 15 when i messed around with my 233 Pentium ( i first got it when i was 14 (thx to my BRO!)...with no Heatsink fan just some cheap aluminum fins. I later upgraded but went on and bought a "HP" which i upgraded as well from a 550 P3 100 FSB to a 933 P3 at 133FSB and from 64 MB of MEM to 512 Pc133 Ram, video card and sound aswell...still have that baby. I finally got the balls to buy my components and built my beast at age 19. Never built one from scratch but did with help of my friends at home and my friends at TweakTown. Thx....I'm 20 BTW

    my first actual computer was when I was 17, a p3 350 with 8mb diamond pro, 64 megs of ram, and a soundblaster 64. Ohhhh Yeah. That was alot of fun, scary, but alot of fun.

    Now when I was 12 I got the notion to completely un assemble my 386 and then put it back together. hehe, my dad was so mad at me when he came home and his computer was in pieces....but he was suprised when I put it back together with no problems!!!

    We had to take apart & rebuild Commodore PET32's in college - does that count? I was around 20 then.
    I didn't build one for myself from scratch until i was 31 though:rolleyes:
