Re: Hot gx620

Dood, as near as my feeble mind can recall I don't think I did. I'll have to try it again later.

Re: Hot gx620

Clearly you guys know something I don't. Tried speedfan again, enabled laptop support, but still couldn't get anything. The other program linked does seem to be doing me some good, however, and it...

Re: Hot gx620

Brethin, you're doubtless right about the Pci-e, just glanced and assumed it was agp. At any rate it couldn't ever be used with a fan stuck over it.

The fan in it plugs into the board; I'll have...

Re: Hot gx620

Great!_thanks for that. Found about one and a half inches of space over an agp and pci slot; was thinking about rigging a fan in that. Don't know if it would be big enough to do any good anyway...

Re: Hot gx620

The pits. And no room to put another fan either. I'm thinking surely there must be some way to speed this thing up, like what happens, I wonder, if you cut the control wire and just feed straight...

Hot gx620

Replaced 3 caps on a gx620, redid the thermal, cleaned and oiled the fan,but it's still running hotter than I think it should. Tried speedfan but apparently the thing has no sensors. Anybody have any...

Re: Your Best Dumpster Finds

For a couple of years I was being given all the donated computer gear by a charity flea market; they'd been dumping it all, quite a bit of it. Then one day I mentioned when there was no more use for...

Unhappy Re: Apple Cinema Display 20"

Well, the good part about mine is that it was free. The bad part is that it makes me sick just sitting here when I so much want to use it. Keep hoping I'll somehow acquire the necessary Mac to use...

Re: Apple Cinema Display 20"

I've had one of those things for quite some time now with no power supply. The supplies I've found are super high priced, and I saw something which said you had to have a G4 or G5 Mac to use it. What...

Thanks, PyrOBEAST, I'll see if I can properly apply that to some boards.

Re: Testing VRMs

Sorry, I'm old and senile. Can anyone simplify for me how to find the inputs and outputs on vrms? There seem to be any number of fets around the cpu on a lot of boards, and I can't figure out where...

Hey thanks, guys. Thought I was going to have to wait until I run across another of these things.

Re: Dell Dimension 4700 - Bad United Chemi-Con

Enduser, there is a transistor just to the left of the power supply socket by an inductor, Q5H1. Can you tell me the number of that? Took it out then lost it before I got the number. Thanks.

Re: Standard wire pattern for lcds?

Just hooked this crazy thing up to the laptop again and now it's working again. It's not disassembled but is out of the shell. I'll try putting it back in the shell again later and see what happens.

Re: PCI-X Video cards

I just replaced some caps on a Dell 650 workstation which has a pci-x ATI video card. Looks like I may have to toss it because I can't find free drivers for it and I doubt it's worth buying them.

Re: An old fave analog meter

I have one of those old Simpson 260's I bought about 10 years ago at a flea market for $5.00. Don't think I have another tool I depend on as much and wouldn't know how to act without it.

Re: The Indestructible Dell GX620 USFF, FULL Poly mod!

Thanks for the info_I see I'm cheap. But then I'm sure you have a better market than I do. I just have area flea markets sell mine. Everything is also much down from this time last year.

Re: The Indestructible Dell GX620 USFF, FULL Poly mod!

Topcat, from what you said about what you get for the 620, I'm going to have to revise my price for the one I have_was going to ask $200 with an LCD and speakers. Right now I have out an sx280; only...
