Re: Abit AI7 mosfet overheating

Yes, I replaced the capacitors and it overheats the same, and overheats with any graphics card, even without a card it overheats the same, what surprises me is that the resistance of the 3.3v track...

Re: Bad aluminum poly cap on Gigabyte mobo

I do not like Apaq too much, but I'm going to be honest, are not fake and they are real polymers (I have not seen any Apaq spill), and the 5K series is proving to be reliable, a friend has an Asus...

Re: Fake Rubycons?

Thanks for the advice :) I will keep that in mind for the future, because the size of these capacitors is rare.

This motherboard is full of badcaps, all the capacitors have to be replaced. It has...

Re: Fake Rubycons?

I think they are genuine. I recently replaced a faulty Foxconn motherboard with VRM capacitors leaking, and they are also rubycon, but not MBZ, they are MFZ series.

Re: OMFG, I have real internet!!

Yes, the upload speed I had in ADSL was ridiculous. And that the ISP promised me 640Kbps upload.
It was never fast, plus it always had a lot of ping.
The Movistar client boxes (Owner of the ADSL...

Re: OMFG, I have real internet!!

It had 600Kb of upload, but it was terribly slow and with many connection drops, and also adding that you have to upload the photo to a server located in the USA (I reside in Spain) the upload width...

Re: OMFG, I have real internet!!

I am surprised that being in 2020 there are still 1Mb connections :(.
In 2011, a friend who lived in California only had 1Mb, it seems incredible that there were still such low-speed connections, at...

Re: best cheap/free scores 1.1

I present my IBM 2133 that I found a while ago, a week ago I started to improve it, I originally had a 486SX, but I changed it to a 482DX2, then I added 8MB of ram, then I put a 345MB Maxtor HDD (as...

Re: best cheap/free scores 1.1

The label came to me just today and I put it in the box so it could be seen that it has a 3dfx inside :D.
I chose this case because it is the best state I was, although I like it a lot, it is very...

Re: best cheap/free scores 1.1

In the end they gave me the Tualeron :D.
I had all the gluxon capacitors in disrepair, I replaced them with nichicon HM series of 6.3v 1000 microfarads, and replaced 3 Teapo for Rubycon MBZ series...

Re: best cheap/free scores 1.1

For $ 25 it is a very good price, even if these components are missing, 3DFX cards are highly sought after. I would love to have a voodoo 3.
I only have a Banshee 3dfx mounted on my 233 MHz Pentium...

How lucky to have 1Gb since 2013, I have been with ADSL until October 2019, and I had a rate of 50 dollars per 20Mb ... Now with the fiber I have a rate of 38 dollars of 1Gb and 300Mb of upload....

Re: A Colossal HDD Failure

The 7200.10 series are very reliable, although it also influences its useful life if it carries a quality power supply.
I have had 7200.7, 7200.10, 7200.14 and they have not given me problems, even...

About MEC-CON capacitors

I found a picture of a PSU with MEC-CON capacitors, what surprises me is that it is almost the same as Nippon Chemicon.
It's possible?

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

I almost guessed it hahaha.

I also don't think that 3GO is capable of maintaining stability, just by seeing that there are only very small 3 capacitors ((one...

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

Seeing the date of the PCB, if it has been installed at least since 2012 or 2013 it will have at least 60,000h, I think it is normal for the capacitor to evaporate the electrolytic content and more...

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

It is the same PCB model, although I noticed that in the core of the transformer that carries the 3GO puts ERL35 (although I doubt it is true, it is too small to be an ERL35, I think it is rather 28...

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

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

Literally, that PSU is a junk xD.
You are right, 330 microfarads do not give a stable line to the switch. coincidentally, a few days ago I published some photos of an Emac manufactured by Zippy, it...

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

I bring photos of this terrible PSU "500 watts", and as an extra the fan they tried to fix.
Although the fault was not caused by bad capacitors, but because the 230v switch was moved to 115v, the...
