Re: Intel SDE AVX and SSE4.2 patch

Ah yes, didn't Brent Spiner (Data from Star Trek) make an appearance in an episode?

Ah, so that's the T3500... I was thinking of the T3400.

What about those China special X79 2011/1356 boards?...

Re: Intel SDE AVX and SSE4.2 patch

Good luck finding a reasonably priced 1156 motherboard.

You're better off buying one of those Chinesium motherboards that take the Xeons with the triple-channel memory support. The boards are...

Re: Intel SDE AVX and SSE4.2 patch

Time to ditch Wolfdale/Harpertown.

I picked up a nice ATX Socket AM3+ board locally for $5 with a bios mis-flash, and then paired it with a bargain-basement $20 FX8300...

One day I'll put some...

Re: Lelon quality

Lelon electrolytics are unpredictable, sometimes they do ok in innocuous areas (furnace mainboards for example), sometimes they don't last more than a year in other applications.

Their polymer...

Re: Help to bring cost down for 15 Caps

You want the second link, which is Rubycon ZLH, as opposed to the first, which is NCC KMG. KMG is a general purpose series.

Re: Dell Optiplex GX260 - Advice Needed for Polymodding Motherboard

Just a piece of advice - give some attention to the PSU as well... Dell uses several OEMs for their PSUs...

Depending on the one used in your particular machine, the caps may need to be replaced....

Re: Help to bring cost down for 15 Caps

I recommend contacting member Behemot (https://badcaps.net/forum/member.php?u=15285) who can hook you up with small quantites at a reasonable price and reasonable shipping.

Re: Modern Samxon and Teapo caps much better these days?

Yes, I have a SP-450 here (SmartPower) I re-capped years ago... There's something else wrong with it. It's in my "PSUs that have odd issues other than caps pile". It works for the most part, but...

Re: Are this caps something special?

I doubt it.. It could be you butchering the traces on the board with the iron... If those capacitors leakes, they may have weakened the traces or pads.

The caps you linked to are fine... I...

Re: Any more info on counterfeit Nichicons?

I ran a PSU with Behemot's caps for several years, 24/7. They were his custom-ordered 16V 3300uF UCC KZN series. Quite genuine sir.

Re: Did I just bought a fakecap ?

Of course they're fake.

I have never seen Panasonic FL sold to the masses that were genuine, nor are they even manufactured any longer.

Re: kemet

Kemet electrolytics and polymers are low-tier Chinese products and should be avoided.

Their polymer caps are priced very competitively - but there's a reason for that. They are not on par with...

Re: Wiring ethernet in new office

I've had good results with the BCM4708 but not the BCM4709.

I managed to buy a small quantity of Nichicon HZ 6.3v 3300uF for old jobs, but you don't need to use Nichicon HZ.

Re: Panasonic FC series - leaking? quality gone?

Re: Panasonic FC series - leaking? quality gone?

So PL and PR (obsolete) and PS/PM are to be avoided in that case...

So since FC is out of the picture, we're left with PW and LXY/LXZ for good, enduring non-aqueous parts...

I'm going back on...
