Re: Help Identify Cap from Hi-Res Photo

I think the SV series (http://www.panasonic.com/industrial/components/pdf/pic_vs_series.pdf) might be a match.

Re: Help Identify Cap from Hi-Res Photo

I was thinking that was the case, because of the vents.
I didn't pay that much attention when the case was open, only when I examined the macro photos did the vent lines become apparent.

Substitute SEPC 820 for KZG?

My question is about substituting a Sanyo SEPC 820/4.0 for a bulged KZG 820/6.3.
If this is not appropriate, it is better recommended to use 1000/6.3 instead?

These are field caps, not located in...

Re: netflix, the network destoryer

Actually, no.

My geographic location ties me to PacBell/SBC/AT&T or whatever the name du jour is currently.

Re: netflix, the network destoryer

I think there is a real need for a caching multi-media server.

For example, you have a standard 1.5 DSL line which is not adequate for streaming at any decent quality.

Re: New Gigabyte motherboard PC won't post

The continuous rebooting might be a cause. A lot of these boards do a cold restart by shutting off power first. This constant in-rush peak over several hours isn't part of the design process.
