I disagree.

AMD chips seem to be only vulnerable to localized attacks while Intel chips seem vulnerable to remote attacks...

I think anything like a Haswell should be fast enough to withstand...

Looks like this affects everything from the first Core (and Pentium-based Core series) and up.

Re: Firefox 57 Quantum Rocks!

You must be drunk and high on something to suggest that Firefox is anywhere near Chromium in terms of a polished and finished product. Firefox is eons behind Chromium.

Re: United Chemi-Con PSG with 20,000h endurance!

Re: United Chemi-Con PSG with 20,000h endurance!

Re: United Chemi-Con PSG with 20,000h endurance!

Out of curiosity, I opened up two polymers last night. The first, a Sanyo OSCON, probably around 15 or so years old. The second, a Fujitsu bumblebee.

Re: Antec EarthWatts EA-430 and EA-500 – an easy bad caps fix

GB (S12-II Bronze) is going to be discontinued soon. GP (S12-II Gold) is already out of production. This applies to everything from 300-450 watts. Not sure about the higher-watt varieties.

Re: Rubycon ZLQ is ok for computer power supply 5 volt rail

If you want 6.3V and 3300uF you will have to use a 10mm... ZLQ only has 2200uF in 8mm.

Re: QDI mainboard with bad caps - Need some help

Just go with the list from Newark and replace all the caps. If you have the time and skill, then why not? It's not a good idea to start experimenting with, or paying a lot of money for polymers.

Re: Würth Elektronik Electrolytic Capacitors Official Thread

I have just ordered a tester so hopefully I can test it when it arrives, but I'm pretty sure the cap is ok. No it is pretty stiff and I can't push it back down (I just tried with a lot of force).

When you say relabeled, do you mean fake or subcontracted?

Because this was purchased straight from Newark. In fact, they're still selling it:

Who knows.

We need to find out more about Illinois, CDE, Vishay, Kemet, Tecate, etc...

Vishay could be manufacturing one thing in-house but then sub-contracting electrolytics to someone else.
