Re: Power supply build quality pictorial. part 2

I doubt it. Regardless, I picked it up for $9.99 and it does 550w clean according to the review.

HEC-550TB. Same unit as this thing (http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/printpage/ADATA-BN-550-Power-Supply-Review/1268). Caps on secondary are all Teapo, except for one Su'scon on the 5VSB and other...

Re: the gutless, bloated, and fried power supply hall of shame

I like how the power supply on the box isn't the one inside. Notice how the lack of filtering on the one that the user actually receives.

Re: Power supply build quality pictorial. part 2

Winsis KWT-200. TFX psu that comes with the Winsis WI-02 Mini-itx case. For a PSU that comes with a case that only cost $60 this thing is pretty impressive. It even has pi coils and a full input...

Re: the gutless, bloated, and fried power supply hall of shame

I have an x1650 Pro that takes in power from the FDD connector, but I don't remember seeing other cards of the same gen using it.

Re: Toshiba A135 stuck in sleep mode?

Which wouldn't be the worst thing in the world tbh, I got this for free and have no money invested in it. The re-flow makes sense since the last time it turned on it was when I moved it...

Re: Toshiba A135 stuck in sleep mode?

ATI Radeon XPress 200M is the video stuff, integrated. Weird thing is I've got it to work once before, now it just kinda laughs in my face.

Hope not, otherwise I'm out essentially the cost of a new one of these things. :(

Just found your thread on that unit. Looks like a good candidate for a rebuild in that case. Might be fun. :D

Re: Power supply build quality pictorial. part 2

Got in some real marvels of engineering recently. All of them are broken in some way, two due to bad caps, one due to being garbage in the first place.

Got a free with case wonder today. Namely, the 250w in this. (http://www.athenapower.us/products/chassis/bp_ca_1015cr.html) The case itself is a God-awful mess, but that's besides the point. ...

Re: 1.8GHZ northwood celeron vs. coppermine 1GHZ PIII

eMachines, but as you said they used it in HP systems as well. Will give it a shot once I have a PC with a working floppy drive.

Re: 1.8GHZ northwood celeron vs. coppermine 1GHZ PIII

Will it need BIOS update? Found one rather cheap on ePay along with the low profile heatsink needed to get it to fit in an XE783 case. And will certainly replace the caps at some point.
EDIT: Also,...

Re: 1.8GHZ northwood celeron vs. coppermine 1GHZ PIII
