Re: Dell refurbishing "oops" on GX620 motherboard

Re: Dell refurbishing "oops" on GX620 motherboard

just measured a customer's GX620USFF, there is 12v present on all 3 of the 1500uF 16v caps. I thought there was, I remember checking this when I did the poly kit....and I remembered right.

Re: Dell refurbishing "oops" on GX620 motherboard

those should have burst within seconds of being powered up if there's 12v put on a 6.3v cap....they go POOF really quick and really loudly. They wouldn't have lasted 3 minutes let alone 3 months.
