Re: Fixing Goontrons warped PSU and main rig.

Re: best cheap/free scores 1.1

They weren't overwhelmingly lytic like the G5, most polymer....but the few they had were killed by heat. Usually a couple 1500uF 6.3v 10x12 and a couple 680uf 16v 10x12. either KZJ or MBZ.

Re: best cheap/free scores 1.1

Those were horrible for GPU chip underfill issues, and of course bad caps. Make sure you take it apart and check it.

Re: best cheap/free scores 1.1

$20 thrift shop find: APC XS-1300 UPS. Batteries are toast of course, but OEM replacements are $40. Not bad for a $200+ UPS. :D My server needed one of these desperately.
