Re: ABit BE6-II capacitor diagram

Sounds like you're using PSUs with the ATX 2.2/2.3 standard, since those removed -5V completely. Did you try a cheaper PSU for testing? (any PSU that has a -5v rail, I'm using a beefy Deer unit for...

Re: Post your system.......

Ah yes, the PC133 variant of the M810 (there is a DDR version afaik, completely different from that one you have).

I do have one of those as well (branded as Totem TM-S730LMV) and as far as I...

Re: best cheap/free scores 1.1

Scored an ASUS G70S before heading home.

Works fine, but had to scrap both GPUs (2x 8700M GT) as whatever monkey tried to do a reflow on them literally popcorned the PCBs on both. No wonder...

Re: best cheap/free scores 1.1

Another dumpster find, this time it's a Fujitsu Siemens Esprimo Mobile D9510.

P8700, 4GB DDR3, 200 GB Toshiba HDD. Only issue with it is bad inverter.

Also got a lead for a very nice ASUS G70S...

Re: best cheap/free scores 1.1

Scored another Acer 6530. This one seems ABSOLUTELY untouched - no marks of flux anywhere.

Probably a failed RS780 which needs reflow (again, chip was never touched, in fact ALL screws in the...

Re: best cheap/free scores 1.1

Because where I am staying on my trip for now (Arad), there's literally NO PLACE to find tantalums, let alone 330s.

I managed to find some stuff on a broken L300 board (although the bigger...

Re: best cheap/free scores 1.1

Slight update, managed to finally fix the Toshiba A300.

I managed to do quite a contraption:

- 1x 330uF
- 3x 47uF
- 1x 100uF
- 2x 150uF

Managed to cram all that in there because most...

Re: best cheap/free scores 1.1

Update for the HDDs:

Tested both, they work well. Conner was empty, but the Fujitsu had a 2k Pro install that I saved. (had missing NTLDR plus root boot files)

Re: best cheap/free scores 1.1

Yeah, shame the speakers' foam are in pretty bad shape. Otherwise, I can agree the A210 and A300 I have, both look pretty sturdy.

Found these at the trash just now:

Re: The Cheapest ATX Power Supply on Amazon Prime, How bad can it be?

I was actually doing that on a daily basis last year, more or less.

450W Frontier - housed a 350W CWT ISO
400W Allied - houses a ~400W (realistically) Premier (DEER) I rebuilt in 2019 and looks...

Re: best cheap/free scores 1.1

I'm not sure, but these came from a Gigabyte mobo (also nF2 but with basic features as opposed to the Epox) and have yet to bulge, and that mobo was in use for a good 17 years. Maybe I misread and...

Re: $20 "500W" PSU From MicroCenter, how bad can it be?

I've seen such a fuse in an A-Line crap PSU.

Strange seeing them so gutless, usually most of my units were either some stupidly designed Deer (spots for PI coils but the traces didn't go...

Re: the gutless, bloated, and fried power supply hall of shame

QFT. Almost all Deers I have sport either Sanyo, Rubycon, Nichicon or UCC KZE in the 5vSB section. At least if anything fails first, it ain't gonna be the standby rail.

Re: best cheap/free scores 1.1

Re: best cheap/free scores 1.1

I might actually try SP1, since that was my first disc of Vista I ever had and which worked really nice and fine for me.

BTW, I might also post pictures of that ANS PSU I took out, hopefully with...

Re: best cheap/free scores 1.1

Could be they had a lot of 700MB casings left and reused them on 850MB drives? I've seen such practice done - Lenovo did this with a 100GB Apple drive. First glance revealed nothing out of the...

Re: best cheap/free scores 1.1

Yeah, apparently WD did a weird thing. This actually identifies and measures succsessfully as a 850MB WD Caviar 2850.

It had a 2850 sticker at first, which came off to show a 2700 label. Strange....
