Re: socket 775 forever... no, no, no...

I gave my friend my trusty old Gigabyte ep45-ds3, it's 14 years old, it hasn't failed at all yet.
I've seen more socket 478, 462 boards fail than socket 775.
But 775 had many different chipsets,...

Re: Hard drive reliability

The 9/10 series came out very well, and I'm sure it can do at least 50,000 POH more hours.
Another series that is doing well is the 1BD142, they are very reliable too.
Mine goes for 77.991h POH....

Re: best cheap/free scores 1.1

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

Totally agree.
It's incredible, a friend has an i7 3770 with an ASUS P8H77-I motherboard, the pc has 80,000h, and no Apaq has yet failed, and he plays with that computer almost every day.
The most...

Re: Failed Panasonic FL

Surely it has failed due to the heat, I would add a fan to keep the chipset and the capacitors that are nearby cool.
How many hours does the hard drive currently have? Out of curiosity.
I have a...

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

Apaq 5K series is doing very well in terms of reliability and performance,
Obviously I prefer Japanese FP capacitors, or Os-con, Nichicon over Apaq, but Apaq for what it is, is one of the best...

Re: A Colossal HDD Failure

Re: Abit AI7 mosfet overheating

Yes, I replaced the capacitors and it overheats the same, and overheats with any graphics card, even without a card it overheats the same, what surprises me is that the resistance of the 3.3v track...

Re: Bad aluminum poly cap on Gigabyte mobo

I do not like Apaq too much, but I'm going to be honest, are not fake and they are real polymers (I have not seen any Apaq spill), and the 5K series is proving to be reliable, a friend has an Asus...

Re: Fake Rubycons?

Thanks for the advice :) I will keep that in mind for the future, because the size of these capacitors is rare.

Re: Fake Rubycons?

I think they are genuine. I recently replaced a faulty Foxconn motherboard with VRM capacitors leaking, and they are also rubycon, but not MBZ, they are MFZ series.

Re: OMFG, I have real internet!!

Re: best cheap/free scores 1.1

For $ 25 it is a very good price, even if these components are missing, 3DFX cards are highly sought after. I would love to have a voodoo 3.
