    i knew the ihs wasn't but not the base :S , does this lead to instability or will the cpu never be 100% utilised?

    I had a couple new arrivals in my "shit to fix" collection which consisted of a Samsung 206BW LCD display and a Casio Exilim EX-S10 digital camera.

    ----------------------------------------------------

    First up is the Samsung 206BW which has the problem that it won't power on. The problem is quite common for this model and is related to a couple of crappy capacitors on the power board.

    The back of the power board still connected to the circuit board chassis (the digital I/O board is partly visible to the right):
    [​IMG]

    The full frontal nude of the digital I/O board (all the chicken scratch is from the factory :laugh:):

    The full frontal nude of the power board (only the chicken scratch on the inverter outputs is mine, everything else is from the factory):
    [​IMG]

    The blown capacitors (I'll try to post pics of the repair when it's complete). Samsung had to use low ESR high temp caps so I couldn't get them from radioshack...:cry:
    [​IMG]

    ----------------------------------------------------

    Now onto the good old Casio Exilim EX-S10. The problem was that the camera had been dropped when the telescoping lens was almost fully extended. The result was that the lens would not retract into the normal protected off position despite the motor still working. I had to disassemble the camera and disassemble the optics (which I've never done before). Unfortunately this is one puppy I don't think I can fix...

    The camera body panels removed:

    The front of the optics after it was removed from the camera frame (you can see the capacitors from the Samsung 206BW power board that I desoldered on the left :D):
    [​IMG]

    The rear of the optics after it was removed from the camera frame (you can see the capacitors from the Samsung 206BW power board that I desoldered on the left :D):
    [​IMG]

    Finally the interior of the optics. I checked every gear in the gearbox(s). I applied a huge amount of pressure to the rotating disc mechanism. I tried everything I could but the optics would not retract...:banghead: You can see the optics's CCD on the left (and it's really cool looking!). I've never seen a 10MP CCD before. :eek:
    [​IMG]

    Any ideas on the camera would be greatly welcome!

    GPU's and motherboard are Koolance. CPU is EK HF Supreme "Nickel". I haven't taken apart the Koolance blocks so I can't tell you. I am kind of curious though:rolleyes:

    Actually, these were 24 Panasonic CF-T8's that were for a work project. After I finished the WDS image, it only took me about 15 hours to apply the image and install the additional software. Not bad in my book... :pimp:

    You've done something magical here. :eek:

    Not only is a good close-up, but you've actually made a Noctua fan look cool. :cool:
