i have a s370 700mhz P3
that's a s370 chip, not a slot 1 cart.
a slocket cost like $5
he's in the czech republic. how much is a slocket there?
100.00 CZK = 6.25114 USD
Czech Republic Koruny United States Dollars
1 CZK = 0.0625114 USD 1 USD = 15.9971 CZK
In the year 1989, the average gross wage of Czech employees was CSK 3,170. In 2005, the average was nearly CZK 19,000. In 2010, when the country is expected to accept the euro, the average salary should be around CZK 25,000.
so total is 4,000ish USD on average in czech republic but anyways probably more for shipping than for the item itself o wait its like that everywhere...
candle_86 - old boards did not used cheated caps, that started around year 2000 Hence they are living proof that cap did not need to fail in even 15 years. And yes, SX means no FPU - in SX version of i386 is there not even a MMU present (Memory Management Unit - give you the ability to have virtuall address space and protect certain memory allocations to changes from other processes)
Random Murderer - copy that
zatblast - not to worry, my stepbro has some (two, IIRC) slots to put a S370 cpus into Slot1. The obvious question is how they will be compatible, but I quess we see about that It could depend on mobo, too. And besides, there is just a few caps on these, so easy to recap them to make sure they aren't unreliable just because of caps

CapXon caps rulez
Bulging sligtly and leaking Vent cap, and some nonstandard inferior Fuhjyyu caps - 1650uF 16V? OMG!
Much to my surprise, the CapXon shit caps are used in Fortron PSUs:
what about HEC caps?
i have a PSU branded under the China Greatwall computer CO. and its making me kind of nervous to use
Seen the images of burned case/PSU before (1st page)? That was HEC caps in action. Draw your own conclusions... But usualy it destroy the mainboard first, so user get alerted that something is dead wrong. Another example was my fanless moded PSU, powering just a VIA C3 machine, a 14W Nehemiah CPU: http://ax2.old-cans.com/s.php?p=silentpc&id=26&c=8&d=1&v=v2

I.Q. cap on Asus TXP4-X (Socket 7 - Pentium 1) mainboard

/me run away scared to death
Asus P5K premium with Elite polymers:
User Dawgdoc, Xtremesystems forum. ( http://www.xtremesystems.org/forums/showthread.php?t=171339 )
what the hell is that crap all over the capacitors? board looks totally fried, must have had some stupid volts going in there...
No, it was just normal PSU there... but the Elite polymers are fake polymers, so, they did not take the stress... Many users already experiences this explosion. Just do not put your head abole Asus P5K when overclocking. You might be seriously injured/and/or even killed. The explosion has considerable force and send the top of the cap up flying like a bullet...
How do you tell what brand they are? by the E Prefix?
Reading through that thread @ XS it was simply that Dawgdoc did the vcore mod wrong, and that was the result.
And i believe by looking at the internals of that cap that they are polymers. I could be wrong though.
yeah you need some dodgy mods or 1.7v+ vcore to trigger such a boom. seriously abnormal that.
I've heard of the same caps blowing on that board just from heavy OC work, like some phase change cooling and 4.5ghz chips. They can't take it.
and those people are running phase change and 1.7v+... i did say that. read the thread a while back. To be honest, if you voltmod the board you have to expect theres a chance things could go wrong.
scary stuff. makes you wonder
