Re: ASUS A7M266 Kills T-Bred B??

Re: ASUS A7M266 Kills T-Bred B??

That is why he burned out the cpu in post #1 then.
And the motherboard VRM is toast, post #6 proves it.

Re: ASUS A7M266 Kills T-Bred B??

Asus changed the vrm design starting with PCB rev. 1.05 and above.
You state that you have rev. 1.04
That may be part of the problem.

Re: ASUS A7M266 Kills T-Bred B??

In post #1 did you update the bios BEFORE putting in the T-bred Athlon XP cpu?
I have read elsewhere that someone did that and the cpu fried because the vrm did not have the correct VID programmed...

Re: Voltage on heatsink

A properly working GFCI outlet should trip at less than 2 milliamps.

Re: 3dfx Voodoo5 glitches

If you do find a seller with the VSA-100 chips buy at least 2 or more if you can get them cheap.
One other thing to try is to put the card in the freezer overnite then let it thaw to room temp for a...

Re: 3dfx Voodoo5 glitches

The previous owner could have screwed the pooch on that card and like a lot of assholes on eBay try to sell it as good when they know it is bad anyway.
A few years ago a seller on eBay had trays of...

Re: Any way to improve distance of toy remote control car?

I do not know. Could just be designed that way or may need fresh batteries. Most of these really cheap toys (<$20) skimp on parts needed to "tune" for optimum performance to save a few cents on the...

Re: BSOD and Gigabyte Capacitors

Well then maybe the issue was not fixed with the H0453 HM's. The boards I had were hardly used though. The quality of the PSU and plenty of cooling goes a long way to extend their life it seems.

Re: Any way to improve distance of toy remote control car?

No. not the only issue. A more powerful transmitter would help with distance but would swamp the receiver when close by and would not be Part 15 approved most likely. A longer receiving antenna might...

Re: Any way to improve distance of toy remote control car?

These tiny remote controlled devices do not care about precise tuned antenna lengths. They work in the Near Field electromagnetic wave region. The field is most likely to be in hundreds of millivolts...

Re: Any way to improve distance of toy remote control car?

Some of these cars use very small antennas so the kids do not pull the table cloth off the table with it. OMG dinner hit the floor!

Re: BSOD and Gigabyte Capacitors

Thanks, interesting though. I think Nichicon must have found a fix for the formula with them but never implemented them into production until after 2005.

Re: Id this resistor please

In the old, old days Inductors were often called Reluctors. Because coils were "reluctant" to pass a.c. as opposed to condensors that allowed a.c. to pass more freely.

Re: Any way to improve distance of toy remote control car?

I have seen the cars with a ceramic cap connected to the metal frame as an antenna for a receiver. No one cares about the Chicken Band anymore, put a Linear on it.

Re: BSOD and Gigabyte Capacitors

It has been about five years since I had those but I remember them to be in the CPU VRM low side and being 3300uf 6.3V and the high side was Rubycons 16V.
