And it started with that, just after i changed the Command Rate from 1t to 2t?
I literally TORTURED this board, with 1.7v on an x2, with 1.5v on an x955...for years!
it even ran with a blewn cap, and that fairly well! i even removed the damaged cap yesterday, and fitted exactly the same cap, i had as spare part from an old socket A board. neithertheless, no change!
i also tried to rescue it with an amiboot.rom, but the usb drive, does not even blink once. anyone ever had a board die in a such unrealistic way? loosening of the ram timings? is there still hope, or can i hang it on the wall?
I think it's done bro
