Default Re: Bad Caps in the Movies !!!!!!

It definitely looks Pentium II / Pentium 3 era with that golden-green PCB and "CET" TO-262 MOSFETs.

It probably is just a prop - most likely they got a bunch of old hardware from a recycling center somewhere or their own old computer inventory (on that note, I suppose it's interesting to think how movie studios find their props, where to they keep the stuff, and how do they decide what to keep long term and what not to.)

BTW, I also thought the tittle of this thread suggested that badcaps.net forums was featured somewhere in a movie. Now that would be fun to see.
