Quick update:
I managed to overclock it to 3.2GHz(going to try pushing it more,but not sure if it will work),seems stable(havent ran Prime95 yet).The reason I couldnt overclock it earlier is because my FSB:DRAM ratio was set to something like 2:3 and the RAM didnt like the speed increase when i adjusted the FSB,it would have been all ok from the beginning if the setting wasnt hidden under a different name,so after playing with the BIOS and finally setting it to 1:1 (400MHz FSB:400MHz RAM - The regular speed of DDR2800).By trying to fix this i also fixed my high temps that sometimes reached 80C+ by reseating the stock Intel CPU cooler.The GPU also got a boost,i managed to get 720MHz (from 625) stable and 1000MHz on the memory(from 993MHz,only 7MHz xD).All in all,the CPU is a bit faster after the 1.1 GHz boost :D

Time to update my post with what I got and "fixed" recently!
Well, I'll start with the latest changes:
I got 1 laptop (my father laptop which HDD got bad and died) the brand is ASUS and I hate it (not because of the brand, because it's BIOS deny me to gain access on the HDD itself even in POST. this is it: ASUS X51L (from which I "stolen" a year ago a 2GB DDR2 SDRAM module and replaced it with a 1GB DDR2 SDRAM module - for upgrading my hp laptop -):
GPU: Same as HP Laptop, X3100
CPU: Intel Pentium T3200
HDD: it had 160GB ??? brand (I already broke the sticker and opened the hard drive) now it has a 160GB Toshiba HDD
OS: Asus forced me to use Windows Vista Home Premium but I successfully managed to install Windows Server 2008 R2 Basic and Server 2012 R2 Datacenter without pulling out the hard drive. and without needing to rewrite the MBR using the Boot Repair Disk ( yey :) ).
Battery: A still good battery which on 83% charge can work for aroung 30-40min.

Good HDD PC (NO BRAND):
It was originally using the ASRock 939A785GMH/128M motherboard with an AMD Athlon forget model and don't want to turn it on again to see it CPU which was very load (the fan) even in POST or Windows/Linux IDLE (no, it wasn't a "1 speed fan"), also it had broken integrated network, the speaker (beeper) didn't worked and also if something wasn't plugged or it wasn't fully plugged it would refuse to boot and no sound so I replaced it with the one in my very first computer!
So, now it has the Gigabyte GA-M68M-S2P motherboard! - a very good change if you would ever ask me -
CPU: AMD Athlon II X2 240 Processor (dual core with 2.8GHz max. speed); - don't you remember what PC used to have this processor? -
GPU: NVIDIA® GeForce 7025/nForce 630a chipset (better than the other one it had this pc with the ASRock motherboard, but, I miss the HDMI port :( ); - at least, it would be nice if that mini tower case would allowed me to use my NVIDIA GPU in it so I wasn't forced to use the integrated GPU... -
HDD: Samsung whatever model 7200rpm 160GB SATA; - this motherboard used to have a very slow MAXTOR 80GB IDE HDD before -

Bad HDD PC (NO BRAND):
Well, as I said up, there, motherboard were changed, GPU, HDD, PSU and CDROM were not moved so:
Motherboard: ASRock 939A785GMH/128M; - I like it only because of that HDMI port -
HDD: As I said up, there, a very slow MAXTOR 80GB IDE HDD;
BDD: Whatever model floppy drive (3.5" 1.forgot MB);
GPU: NVIDIA GEFORCE forgot the model;

Time for copy-paste!!!

HP Compaq 6910p (Vista Edition) ( http://h20566.www2.hp.com/portal/site/h ... .199480143 )
Specs:
CPU: Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU T7300 @ 2.00GHz (Dual Core)
RAM: 3GB - 1GB Samsung Memory, 2GB Forget name Memory (Upgraded from 2x 1GB Samsung Memory)
HDD: 250GB (Hitachi HTS723225L9A360) - Upgraded from 160GB Toshiba forget model number (now it's my external HDD wich met the ground for 2 or 3 times by accident)
GPU: Mobile Intel(R) 965 Express Chipset Family (intel x3100 integrated graphics)
Network:
- Wired: Intel(R) 82566MM (Gigabit Network adapter but my lan it's only 100mbps :(, also I have 100mbps WAN subscription)
- Wireless: Intel(R) Wireless WiFi Link 4965AG (used to view if my Belkin Access Point it's online and working properly, I hate WiFi speeds) + Bluetooth
OS: Usually Windows Server and OS X Yosemite (Hackintosh)
Other: Dead battery :( and coverted to a complete desktop-like workstation; "Intel Centrino vPro Inside"; somewhere in the last few years it was used as a dedicated server - CentOS 6 as a minecraft bukkit server and Windows Server 2008 R2 Datacenter Pre-Release as a Remote Desktop server and sometime as a online radio server; now used as Remote Desktop server and daily usage workstation.

Mobile Workstation also known as my Windows tablet: Asus Transformer Book T100TA ( https://www.asus.com/2-in-1-PCs/ASUS_Tr ... ok_T100TA/ )
CPU: Intel(R) Atom(TM) CPU Z3740 @ 1.33 GHz (Quad Core)
RAM: 2 GB (1.89 usable)
HDD: 64GB - 49.1GB is the Windows partition, the left space until 64GB it's the backup partition and other OEM things - (Hynix HCG8e SSD)
GPU: Intel(R) HD Graphics (Windows doesn't let me see what generation it is)
Network: Broadcom 802.11abgn Wireless SDIO + Bluetooth
OS: Windows 10 Home
Other: It has included keyboard and touchpad dock with USB 3.0 wich doesn't give too much power and also the touchpad does not allow me to press left and right click at the same time.


Now I'll explain the OS part of all those systems since the OS part it's the most "complex" one:

1. HP Laptop: Right now: Server 2008 R2 Datacenter - used when I need to do something complex; OS X Yosemite: Casual, usually just in case I need it.
2. Asus Laptop: Right now: Server 2008 R2 Standard - used as main OS on that laptop until I replaced the vista home premium with Server 2012 R2 which I use when I'm on that laptop.
3. Good HDD PC: This one had a lot of Server 2008 R2 installs because of fails - inclunding motherboard forces Windows to BSOD from X to X hours - so, as of right now it's running the old Windows XP SP3 Professional (32bit) having the TS Server enabled and patched to allow more than 1 session at a time - I'm planning to use it as my file server and Remote Desktop server when I'm not home or when I have a stable and dynamic desktop (because right now I'm on Asus Laptop on Server 2012 R2 connected to the XP TS Server playing the old Windows Welcome music while writing this topic) -
4. Bad HDD PC: Since I changed the motherboard from one pc to another, that IDE HDD is now left behind everything with 2 Operating Systems that doesn't work, I'm too lazy to fix them - ZorinOS says that he can't read or write to the HDD - Server 2008 R2 BSODs itself after boot animation -.
5. Asus Windows Tablet - nothing, Windows 10 "AU" right now...

Question: Who wants to help me make Windows XP a more secure place for files when accessed from remote? Because Windows XP doesn't have a Security tab for partitions :( PM me if interested :D .

That was a long reply, I hope I wrote it correctly, thank you for reading!!
