Default Re: HP Proliant ML110 G5 - CAUTION RISK OF FIRE (epic fail!)

Customer just brought this in today, the very same, fortunately only one drive is dead because of that, but the connector is in even worse shape.

On top of that, fan (ADDA) seized in the power supply and all caps inside are bad

Hmmm. I wonder if ripple from the bad caps in the PSU caused that. Or are we just dealing with some really crappy SATA power connectors in these ML110's?

Just the adapters. From what it looks like, I think there never was problem with overeheating contants of the connector itself. There must be problem inside, as it always burns from the inside and only propagates outside, possibly huge part of the batch is bad. Just wonder what, maybe bad crimping of the contacts before they pressed it in the plastic mold?
