Re: Paxville or Bust! The Supermicro X6DA8 Project

Ahh the X6DAL board. I had an X6DAL-G when I was in highschool as my main computer. I'm not sure what happened to that machine. I think it fell victim to my Dad's murderous computer recycling after I...

Re: Gigabyte GA-586DX Retro Goodness

I've been getting really into retro systems lately. The fact that it is ATX is way cool. I have been trying to hunt down a dual socket 7 AT board at a reasonable price.

Re: Power supply build quality pictorial. part 2

I had one of these, except with a dual 80mm fans. It was actually a pretty decent 300W unit. They have OPP that steps in at around 350W.

Re: Power supply build quality pictorial. part 2

The messy but complete design and choice of dodgy components makes me think it is an old Superflower design.

Weird, I come back after a while and see one of my old threads resurrected the same day.

Re: did i pull the foil tube out?

If it is the power supply, chances are it is single layer. You most likely just have a blob of solder on the leg of the capacitor shaped like the hole. A picture would be helpful.

Re: Power supply build quality pictorial. part 2

Its not even that lucky. Its a half-bridge unit. If designed well, a half bridge unit can deliver the advertised wattage no problem. 13009's are not sufficient in this case, and this unit is not a...

Re: Power supply build quality pictorial. part 2

Old YoungYear design. The primary switchers will probably blow before anything else at around 400W.

Re: Advanced electronics fx 500 lpz12-50

This is most likely a KMEX, as this is a copy of an old (but good) ATNG platform that KMEX is known to make a copy of:

Re: Power supply build quality pictorial. part 2

The heatsinks look like HIPRO, but the choice of caps, SG6105D and Hang Sing transformer makes me think otherwise. LC Power?

Re: smps transformer

If the power supply is like a computer SMPS, there is kind of a second, smaller power supply that runs the 5V stand by circuit. Its generally a very simple two transistor setup on a cheaper unit, or...

Re: rectification in smps

Many simple power supplies do simply rectify the input AC voltage into a DC voltage, then run it through a transformer to step it down to the correct DC voltage. The problem with this is you need a...

Re: Power adapter from Apple Time Capsule - 0V at output

220V DC at the output of the bridge rectifier would be correct for 220V AC input. I would desolder the main switching transistor and check that next. It should be the device bolted to the aluminum...

Re: Logisys AT750BK

LYP part number = LongYi Power. LongYi made a lot of the cheaper Coolmax units. They are good at ripping off Delta and Hipro designs, and screwing them up a bit in the process.

Re: Chip of the year data: 2002, 2003, 2005, 2012

Hi everell, good to see you are still alive.

I believe those chips marked with a year are used solely in power supplies manufactured by Deer/Solytech. I don't know if they are a proprietary...

Re: Power supply build quality pictorial. part 2

So they can plug a fake PPFC coil into it that doesn't even need to have a real loop of wire. They just saved 1/2 a cent by doing that per unit.

Re: the gutless, bloated, and fried power supply hall of shame

Looks like a GoldenTiger. Most Coolmax's are Longyi, they are both very similar, usually only told apart by the part number. GoldenTiger = GT, Longyi = LY.

Normally that would be the case, but right now I lack a working computer with Sata capabilities (the WD 320GB in my main computer just took a dump.)

Re: the gutless, bloated, and fried power supply hall of shame

YoungYear do make their model numbers double what they design their units to put out, so ATX-600 would be spot on for 300W.
