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.


refrences:
http://www.czech.cz/en/economy-busi...ndards-of-living/buying-power/average-salary/
http://www.xe.com/ucc/convert.cgi


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 :D (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 :D


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 :p 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 :laugh:



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:

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
See? Hec!

Random Murderer -



Well, yes. I never had it, only crappy Celeron II Slot1 things and it would give me a reason why resuscitate (or at least try) the MSI 6163 pro board - as the upper mosfet is fryed up badly and the mobo did not post anymore.
If that fail, I use this Slot1 P3 as good excuse to recap others Slot1 still (not entierly reliable - Licon caps, G-Luxon caps) posting mainboards I have - AOpen AX6LC, PC Chips M761 and Tomato BXv98-AT :D


Snake05 - maybe next time :laugh:


tkpenalty -

Yes, they must have aluminium vent, because of security reasons. Believe or not, but the force of the cap explosion (there is also hydrogen and we all know what happen to Challenger) is quite considerable and I was once near (2 feet) exploding G-Luxon (luckily it just wanted, or I was not here!) cap and I must tell you, I lost my hearing for short period of time. Do not underestiminate the force. Of course I was close to my KGZ caps on DFI LP B explosion in case (thanks to Fuhjyyu caps in PSU), about 3 feet and it was not much bad this time, so it differ... Yet still the vents are not there for fun.

Maybe the vent are bellow the black casing? Check that out.



You never can "not realize" the caps exploded. I can guarantee you that much ;)
Even if you are not close, the machine in question will stop working or even catch fire. You cannot miss that. But it is true, that w/o seeing the vent, you never know the cap is bulging on you and that is dangerous.
Well the older model of it was also 350W and it didnt have any large caps :eek:

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...

Holy s**t...

How do you tell what brand they are? by the E Prefix?

Edit:

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.

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.
