Re: Power supply build quality pictorial. part 2

It will be good for 200W continuous. Again, that's a 28 size transformer you have there, not a 35 and not a 33 either. I've actually desoldered one of those fake 35 labeled size 28 trafos from an...

Re: Power supply build quality pictorial. part 2

200W.

I'll say this as long as necessary - don't be fooled about the ERL-35-2005 labeling and the transformer shape - that is a rounded ERL-28 transformer which Deer uses to fool people into...

Re: best cheap/free scores 1.1

- PSP 1003 w/ bad screen (not cracked)
- Samsung NP-R610H (C2D T5800, GF 9200M GS, 4GB DDR2, 250GB Hitachi HDD, no battery and has a single green line on the left side of...

Re: best cheap/free scores 1.1

You sure the Thermaltake isn't at fault too? I have one of those and almost instantly ditched its original fan (which not only was loud, but it was a 80mm w/ adapter from 70mm) in favor of a standard...

Re: best cheap/free scores 1.1

Scored an Samsug Galaxy Note 4 N910F in rather pristine condition - doesn't bootloop, but does get rather hot.

Also scored another slotket which allows me to control the CPU voltage at my free own...

Re: will GPU work with missing memory modules?

Depends which modules are bad. If anything, you theoretically could remove chips until you get to a standard RAM amount (say from 8GB to 4GB or to 2GB), and then flash a VBIOS that only uses that...

Re: best cheap/free scores 1.1

Scored a recased Spire Jewel unit (guessing it's the 380W model), Sun Pro AT-2005B PCB. Comes in handy as it's beefy all around while maintaining a low profile, has a strong enough 5v rail and has...

Re: Power supply build quality pictorial. part 2

Welp, the Sun Pro got scrapped. 5vSB had an issue where it would constantly tick, despite being recapped.

Instead, I've taken my time to open up an unit I wanted to work on for quite some time....

Re: Power supply build quality pictorial. part 2

That's a 35 sized transformer though (not the puny 33 that most Deer/L&C usually ship with), so apart from the main caps, I'd put it at 280W continuous and 300 peak. Maybe 300 continuous if I could...

Re: Power supply build quality pictorial. part 2

Re: best cheap/free scores 1.1

Scored a free ASUS A7N8X-VM/400. Basically the GF4MX version of the A7N8X - flashed the absolutely crappy AMIBIOS to Award (Chaintech 7NIF2) and besides a non-working thermal sensor (doesn't trip,...

Re: The ghetto mod thread

Since I was cheap and this is probably the only slotket I could ever find, I took a gamble and went ahead and modded it to work with Coppermines.

Re: The Cheap Duo - Two SiS machines

Mine is just some noname slotket. Though thanks for the tip of slotkets, I pinmodded it and fired up an SL4C8 CuMine 1GHz just fine on the BE6-II. The SL5QW didn't want to POST, for some unknown...

Re: The Cheap Duo - Two SiS machines

I just can't stop loving how after you mentioned of the SL5QW pair, I managed to find just another one.

If only I could find a compatible slotket... the only one I remember having is Mendocino...

Re: The Cheap Duo - Two SiS machines

It actually is! I'm not keen on selling it though.

Might get a slotket and plop it in some ABIT BE6-II action :)

Re: best cheap/free scores 1.1

Pulled the trigger on another 440BX gem. This time - an ABIT BE6-II !

You'd imagine I'd stop after getting an equally rare Soyo 6BA +IV and a ASUS P2B (which to be honest, is getting scarce here...

The Cheap Duo - Two SiS machines

Just as the title states. Two cheap SiS machines, surprisingly stable.

Re: Power supply build quality pictorial. part 2

If I were him I'd replace the fuse as well. No way in hell that tiny fuse is gonna do anywhere past 200W or so without going nuclear.

Re: KingWin ABT-650MM 650 Watt ATX PSU [PCB: SW8835REV:A]

Re: "Netburst Mercedes" - a rather simple yet "exotic" build

Still a WiP at this point as some stuff needs attention or doesn't work. Not the most period correct either but I make do with whatever spares I have for it.

Re: <play taps>RadeonHD 5770 dead at ... ~10?

If it's G86 core, forget it. Not even copious amounts of cooling can prevent it from failing. I've had a Gigabyte branded 8400GS with a rather big passive cooler and not even a 12cm fan strapped to...

Re: PSU weaken - occasional reset
