Re: ECS mcp61pm-hm 6-bad 1800uf 63 Tk caps

Re: EVGA 7600GT 256mb PCIe Poly Mod

I must add I've not seen the best of Evga. I've 4 bad ones I intend to recap, but that's not necessarily to say the company is bad, but rather used cheap parts in these cases. We all see that the FZ...

Re: Testing VRMs

I suggest sir as a last ditch effort before retiring it completely if it's not too late, baking the board. I have the problem as a common issue with geforce 6100/6150 chipsets. It's the closest I can...

Re: ECS GeForce6100SM-M V:1.0

I started thinking about it and thought what about polymer? Hell why not just go all out? The ones for sale here seem more than reasonably priced. The thing is I don't know how to correctly check the...

Re: ECS GeForce6100SM-M V:1.0

So it's safe to assume in this case that the esr and ripple are are equal or better on both the rubycon and samxon even though the dimensions are slightly different?

Re: ECS GeForce6100SM-M V:1.0

Well first, don't mistake my questioning to be related to quality. I presume Topcat would not sell 'crap' as he seems to have a passion for these things as most of us do, and judging by the size and...

Re: evga fz74 1500uf 6.3

Re: 915gv-m3 v1.0 various caps, cannot find?

Re: k8ngm2/ms-7207 v1.0 - Wrong caps?

I realize baking isn't the conventional method but I've heard of, and performed it on video cards with success. Started doing it on motherboards as a desperate last ditch measure when replacing caps...

915gv-m3 v1.0 various caps, cannot find?
