Re: unknown (solid?) caps on MSI "military class" graphics card?

Well, I don't know for sure, but I'd say most likely they do.
Like you said, there has to be a reason why manufacturers use Japanese polymers in the CPU VRM. But it may not be because they are more...

Re: Post your worthless and/or pointless repairs

I use pencils almost exclusively when drawing/sketching almost anything. Got about a pound worth of them in a bag, most of which came back from when I was in middle school and high school - typically...

Re: xbox one-s

Interesting.
Hey, I see more potential work (and customers) then! :D
Plus, I'd much rather be replacing MOSFETs than doing BGA work with the old Xbox 360's... which would always come back (or get...

Re: best cheap/free scores 1.1

Ha! Cool to see someone still cares about old tech like that (I know I still do.) :)

Regarding the VX700... why do you say you think it needs a recap? Picture too dark or something?

Re: OCZ Fatality 700w PSU Repair Help

Ha! Yeah, two GTX 285 cards will indeed double as room heaters. 204 Watts TDP per GPU x 2 + the CPU TDP (around 100W?)... and that's indeed 1/2 KW of heat to get rid of (in the worst case, of...

Re: Elite 945GCT-M3 dead

Not trying to undermine your troubleshooting experinece, but are you sure someone actually tried to replace the Southbridge before you? I find that very unlikely. If you still haven't cleaned the old...

Re: best cheap/free scores 1.1

WOW!
And despite having the same core clock as the Q6600, I bet it runs most things way faster, probably due to optimizations and updated instruction sets. Makes it that much more of worthwhile...

Re: Post your system.......

Actually, it's funny that you mentioned this. :D

The above post was actually typed a couple of weeks ago, but I didn't get to posting it until now, as I hadn't gotten the pictures organized yet.

I did! :D - In all of the 60 or so minutes it took me. Most of that went towards making the wooden thumb screws for the CPU HS. Otherwise, the OS install went pretty quickly to... Windows 7 Pro, by...

Talking my E-VGA 780i-SLI PC "build"

New year and time for new PC builds, right? :)

Well, okay, this build isn’t exactly “new” stuff, nor did I start it this year. Rather, some of its parts have been waiting on my shelf since...

No offense, but I think you have a comprehension problem, my friend. :p:

Re: resistance burned adp 240 ar power supply ps4

Re: xbox one-s

Nope, not me. But given the hardware... particularly the GPU - an AMD HD7770 variant, I'd expect the GPU VRM and RAM VRM sections to read similar resistance to a discreet HD7770 GPU. Just a guess,...

Re: Sony Audio System Shake 7 Went dead after thunderstorm

Start with the power supply. Does the stand-by section output the proper voltage? If yes, can you turn-on the main PSU without the amp being connected? If not, does the APFC try to run when you turn...

Re: Definitive Technology BP7006 AMP Guide Help

I'd start with the G-luxon electrolytic caps. If you don't have a cheap ESR...

Re: Apple ][+ Astec power supply

It's an Astec PSU. They generally use very reliable parts... save for those RIFA film caps. :lol:
But once you get those taken care of (and maybe the output caps too, as PeteS mentioned)... the PSU...

Re: Fix Thermocouple

If it's type-K, yes you can fix it.

I've done it quite a few times, actually. But my procedure isn't very exact, so bare with me as I try to explain. :) Basically, the idea is to overload the...

Re: best cheap/free scores 1.1

Fair enough.
Still, if you do your "winging" the "right way", you'll know when the HDD is part of the problem. ;)

Talking MSI GeForce GT 430 (N430GT-MD1GD3/OC/LP)

Re: best cheap/free scores 1.1

Nice! :)
No SATA? No Problem! I find that those more modern OEM PSUs from Dell and HP have only SATA and no molex. The cure: steal a strand of molex from an older PSU and exchange it for the SATA on...

Indeed the Quadro M4000 isn't that power hungry (only 120 Watts TDP, which these days is considered as "pocket change" in terms of power use), but still considerably more than the...

Re: unknown (solid?) caps on MSI "military class" graphics card?
