Re: Win7 disk utilization

Get an Original DVD File from Microsoft. You can download it somewhere (or at least you could), need a valid key though. And make a fresh install.

Anyway, something happened with the NT6 kernel...

Re: Power supply build quality pictorial. part 2

And its a rather late part, end of 2007, so it should be fine and not have the "Material Issue". That's something that happened with this plattform in the 2005/2006 time frame.

Re: First Timer - Mystery capacitor identification

Can you get 12,5mm diametre caps in that position or is it too cramped there?
If so -> 16V/3300F Pana FM. Those are perfect replacemens for the 6,3V/3300F
It might be that those are just there...

Re: This is Why You NEVER Ignore Bad Capacitors!

1) the Pics don't work (no more?)

Re: First Timer - Mystery capacitor identification

Isn't Pana FR too high Impedance?
And why not go with Polymers instead??

3300F/6,3V are Polymer levels anyway and, out of my head, at around 12mOhm.
Decent Polymers are at 9mOhm. Why not go...

Re: RAID5 failure: 2 bad HDD's at the same time

Its worth a try.
You might want to clone the other HDDs as well or move them immediately over to a new RAID Array.


No, that should be written in the MBR or wherever it does that.

Re: RAID5 failure: 2 bad HDD's at the same time

You _NEVER EVER EVER_ do that!
If a Drive in a RAID Array fails, you build a new one and copy the content from the old to the new one as long as it works. Start with the most important things.

Re: Nippon Chemi-Con 3300uF 10x25mm?

Panasonic F-S is what you're looking for, if you want to.
But for that old PSU, though they might also be rather good.

2700F/10V should also be possible - as should 6,3V. Those should be easier...

Re: Nippon Chemi-Con 3300uF 10x25mm?

According to the Spec Sheet its the 16V/2200F. And the common one is the 10x30mm one -> 1780mA and 32mOhms Impedance.

The 10V is around 40mOhm (10x25mm) in the spec sheet...

Re: Nippon Chemi-Con 3300uF 10x25mm?

When KZE is too low ESR, Panasonic FM is really too low ESR!
They are so low that you can use Pana FM as a replacement for Nippon KZG - they are a bit larger and for the 6,3V/3300F you have to go...

Re: Topcat's Dream Service Bench Reborn!

Re: Vizio M50-D1 power supply dual voltage?

What are they rated for?

Its possible that its 120VAC Only because they saved on the X and Y-Caps and used only 250VAC rated ones or even lower.

For 230VAC...
