The socket A chips had some issues related to heatsinks failing, lol.
Yeap. I’ve made some bonehead mistakes in my time, but thus far I’ve only managed to fry one CPU. It was an Athlon XP 1600+ Palomino. Didn’t quite have the heatsink mounted flush on the die, and it went quick. Luckily I caught the scent almost immediately, and managed to save the board. Speaking of boards, that’s another area where Socket A was ripe for disaster — stabbing motherboards with screwdrivers while removing heatsinks.

I mean, uh, erm.... I don’t know anyone who’s done that. Especially not after they knew full well it could happen.

Just had an amusing thought: They should sell an electronic “Magic Smoke” scented spray as a gag gift. Spray it in a room of fellow PC nerds after they’ve just built or messed with something, and watch the look of pure terror wash over everyone’s faces.

Thunderbirds and 1st gen Durons didn't have internal temperature sensors, Athlon XPs and 2nd & 3rd Durons had IIRC. Maybe it just depends on the motherboard does it have a shutdown capability if the CPU temp goes too high..

edit: Slipping screwdrivers, oh boy those days.. :D

Yay, some C2D goofin' coming next week! :) Bought an Asus P5QL Pro, I have an E4300 already and some DDR2 :toast:

e: bought a Q6600 from Ebay, 7usd = 6.34eur including shipping.

Nice should be fun.

Its interesting though to me that when I first joined tpu everyone wanted a core2 and an 8800gt and now they are just old retros.

Can't even remember when I first joined, 2008-2009 maybe, didn't remember my password and the mail address was gone so I lost that account.

That Phenom HTPC rig is going to get retired, Core 2 Quad has a better IPC and the most important, that Asus board has 4 RAM slots so it's cheap to have more than 4GB of DDR2.. I also bought a GT 1030 from a friend which is going to fit perfectly to that rig, with HTPC use and some gaming :)

You're going to see soon how HD 4890 CF rocks with Ryzen 2600. :)

HD 4890 has a place in my heart, the first card I had to run over 1GHz, 10 years ago.. I have one, bought another one. :)

I got my DigiKey order, so time to solder. :)
It's a P6WD2 Premium, and has a bunch of burst caps.
I'm refurbing it for a 775 to 771 conversion, with an SL968 3.73GHz Xeon 5080.
I have never had as much trouble putting in caps in my life.

This mobo has ASUS' "Thermal Armor" design.

That's a thick as heck ground plane, with no "Wagon Wheels" to aid desoldering.

This is a wagon wheel:



Without those, you REALLY have to heat the board up.

SO I pulled out the Big weller gun type Iron. (140W)

Still no go.
I could get the positive ones, but not the negatives.
The other side of the PCB wasn't even warm, lol.

So, I got out the heat gun.
By warming the whole area until the solder started to melt, I could extract the solder in the hole with a soldapullt and the small iron.

20 capacitors, pulled one at a time: Heat gun, soldering iron, remove cap, Heat gun, Iron, soldapullt... repeat until done.

Man, this really made me appreciate how much heat you can actually move thru the PCB itself.

:)

The drag with that card is the auction says it "Contains ONE proprietary cable" and it has 4 ports.

Making cables like that that work properly is not for the uninitiated. Or easy, lol.

I wonder what the missing chip was, that has a high speed pair of traces to each connector.
See what I mean? U26?

Here's a couple of more photos I found. This other site claims there HDMI to VGA also has all the cables in the one photo.

Yeah I see that one big missing chip right beside the output.

Funny thing is Radeon 7000 predates HDMI by one year. I guess this card was created recently, but why four HDMI and PCI slots with dual Radeon 7000? Can it do what Rage Fury Maxx did? Is this for multi-monitor work or some sort? Lots of questions when I saw this card.

A quick Google of the card name (DU7KPCI on the bottom right of the card) reveals its usage. Apparently the maker (PCIDV) creates a lot of card specifically for multi monitor usage

A connector is whatever if it's not a standard connector.

HDMI has power in it, so that could be bad to plug into a random hdmi port.

I made a lot of stuff using various connectors you would NOT want to plug into a card or monitor, lol.

Here's a random thought that's been bugging me for ages... How come no one, and I really DO mean no one came up with simple (rubber?) pipe, to allow the CPU air intake from the outside? Just a simple, flexible pipe with either 80x80 or 120x120 terminals on each end, so that you can mount it onto the fan and/or fan grill.
Actually, Thermalright has had one for quite some time :toast:

Thing is, I never saw one of those on sale... If I had, chances are, I would have tried them. IMO these things would be highly efficient on tower-design coolers (CM Hyper 212+)

I kind of want to get one, but don't really need it yet. I did try running fan less out in the open on my 3770K @ 4ghz and it worked fine. I didn't run prime 95 or anything, but for everyday stuff including gaming it was fine.

The million dollar question that even today high end card still struggle to maxed it :laugh:

I'm buying this for my birthday, a Radeon 9100. The last R200 GPU that have hardware Truform acceleration. I'll try to use this first and see how things go, if not I'll have to use my Ultimate Windows XP rig and buy X850XT PCIe. From what I read the later cards using CPU to do the n-patch calculation thus slowing the framerate WAY down if used.


Link to Truform performance if anyone interested
