Re: How to Recondition (Reform) Electrolytic Capacitors and Why

I bought an ESR meter kit based on an old design (ESR Go) so that I could proceed with this project. I started putting the kit together a while back (SMT soldering with a heat gun) and it came out...

Re: Hard Drive Power Supplies

Just a heads up...

Newer PSUs will (or should?) come with a four wire SATA power connector instead of the usual 5.

Pin 3, which was formerly used for 3.3V is now being used to signal power...

Re: BUDGET 4K graphics cards

I think the highest 3xxx AGP series card is faster than the 4670.

HDMI, no, but DisplayPort yes.

You're completely right. Before they were swallowed up by AMD, they were the quaint, odd, eccentric company which you dabbled with, sometimes to your delight, and sometimes to your dismay.

Re: Replacing Rubycon CE W with Rubycon YXF

What's wrong with using a Low-ESR cap after the bridge rectifier on a linear power supply?

Re: CH341a SPI / IC programmer

The shorter connectors with the fine pitch are also common in LCDs, and are often used as interconnects. I reckon a USB3 header cable would also be suitable.

You can also either take the leads...

Re: [HOWTO] Fix/Repair "Chassis Intruded Fatal Error System Halted" on Asus P5QL

I have a P5K-E that basically ignores the CMOS battery... If power is disconnected from the system completely, it loses all the BIOS settings. Is this also because of a weak transistor?

Thanks

You're saying that the chip reads differently before and then after you soldered and desoldered it?

Re: bios chip problem after 100% programmed using CH341A!

I had the same problem with the W25Q128FWSQ.

I contacted the author of the software and he said that he was unable to test it because he didn't have the chip. I sent him a link on Taobao to buy...

Re: bios chip problem after 100% programmed using CH341A!

DIFFICULT WAY
You have to apt-get install dependencies first. Don't ask me what they are, I just did them on-the-fly, I don't remember.

Then you have to tell git to fetch from the latest...

Weelcup -

Try flashrom in Linux. It usually succeeds where the Windows CH341A software fails. Make sure you pull the latest snapshot with git.

If they're not affected, then why are they bothering to release a microcode update?

Just saw on Gamer Nexus, AMD is only releasing microcode updates from Bulldozer and up.

Re: Will the Rubycon ML capacitors do the trick for a Sega Megadrive (Genesis)?

Rubycon ML is a fine choice. It's GP, but high endurance GP. I think its equivalent would be Panasonic EB, but Panasonic seems to have (or is in the process of) discontinuing EB for some reason.

Re: Swapping japanese/generic electrolythics with solid-states

For the motherboard, you can safely use polymers to replace non-VRM caps. I recommend getting a bunch of 6.3V 820uF 8mm polymers for this purpose.

For the VRM, it depends. Which board do you...

Re: Swapping japanese/generic electrolythics with solid-states

If you want exact equivalents, look into Suncon WG. It is still being produced and sold, AFAIK.
