Default Recapped Genesis

Not exactly a computer motherboard, but it is my Sega Genesis motherboard.

The difference new caps made, was huge.

Nice job!

Even through youtube's excessive audio compression, the improvement is obvious.

That don't look like the original version! Looks more like some shrunken version from 1999ish! (If they even still were manufactured!) (Like Sony, with the PS1!) "Chhsi" screams very late 1990s, IIRC!

It's a Model 1 Genesis, VA3 motherboard. Those are from around 1990..

This is the motherboard as it is today. I've extremely hacked it.. Overclocked, region modded, sound chip upgraded (to a mostly compatible part that has same features but better, but not 100% object compatible, requiring an elaborate piggy backing chip hack), and CPU upgrade to a military specced 68000 (just for kicks no benefit really).

The sound chip hack: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v3...a.jpg~original

So yea, I know my way around this beast :P But those caps, oh damn did they make a difference in sound quality.. Visually a little better too.. Far cleaner video output, especially when on an RGB monitor.

At first, it reminded me of Sony's joke super small version of the PlayStation 1!
(Those are manufactured by Foxconn!)

A.K.A., the PlayStation "Booooooooooo!" edition!

Could you re-upload those photos here? Photobucket makes me feel like I'm using a 28.8 modem.

You realize the time it took me to read that and re-upload this means time it could have downloaded right?
