IPA 99.9%!!!



WORK IT BABY!!!



Dupa munca depusa am avut parte de rezultate excelente. Ceva insa tot m-a nemultumit. Ca urmare a orelor de functionare, pe PCB sant prezente urme care nu mai pot fi inlaturate. Regimul de temperatura la care aceste placi sant nevoite sa functioneze sau alegerea materialelor din care sant confectionate aceste placi, inseamna ca indiferent ce as face they will never look better than new.



Well, let's carry on shall we?

Cu ocazia curatarii PCB-ului am descoperit si trei componente lipsa. Doi condensatori ceramici si un mic rezistor. Alegerea mea deja parea una cam neinspirata. Still, I carried on like nothing happened. My gut is always right! (or something along this line)

Fixed.



Am curatat cum se cuvine heatsink-ul. L-am spalat cu apa sub presiune si l-am uscat rapid cu compresorul.

Ventilatorul a primit o revizie ca la carte. Desfacut complet, foarte putin ulei si o curatare atenta.



Looking good!



Am estimat "la ochi" ca thermal pad-urile originale au o grosime de 1 mm. Am cautat pe Internet cateva informatii care au confirmat acest lucru. Ceea ce era insa cert era faptul ca thermal pad-urile originale erau foarte moi asa ca 1 mm de thermal pad moale nu este tot una cu 1 mm de thermal pad mai rigid.

Am cautat in cutiile mele si nu am gasit decat thermal pad Arctic blue de 0.5 mm.

Cum nu aveam de gand sa cumpar thermal pad de 1 mm doar pentru placa asta am decis sa stack the 0.5 mm and get the 1 mm I needed. Good or bad this was my choice.



I really want to power this puppy up. You better be alive or ELSE!



As fi putut acorda o atentie sporita in ceea ce priveste thermal pad-urile, in sensul ca as fi putut face thermal pad-urile perfecte insa nu am facut-o. Deja eram under pressure to fire up the card and confirm that it is still alive. Don't worry, the pads don't need to be perfect for them to do their thing. For once my OCD didn't kick in.

I can feel it!



Vorbeam mai sus despre faptul ca thermal pad-ul Arctic este putin mai tare ca thermal pad-urile originale. Mai mult ca sigur ca grosimea de 0.5 mm nu era suficienta. 1 mm a fost la limita. Dupa montaj a fost nevoie sa aplic foarte putina presiune asupra "scheletului" metalic pentru a elimina micile "deformari" ale PCB-ului ca urmare a folosirii thermal pad-urilor Arctic. Treaba asta a fost destul de stresanta as everyone knows that you don't mess with the tiny solder balls. But I did it regardless. Also I was sure that under the heat resulted from the running of the card, the thermal pads will soften more and all will be ok in the end. They will bed themselves in nicely.

A sosit si momentul in care a trebuit sa pun la loc heatsink-ul. Aici m-am lovit de o mica problema. Nu aveam nici un reper care sa indice exact unde trebuie sa pun heatsink-ul.

I mean I knew where it was supposed to go dar nu am vrut sa fac praf TIM-ul Arctic MX-4 proaspat pus pe GF100, asa ca am asezat heatsink-ul intr-o pozitie care parea corecta si m-am pus pe insurubat.

BIG MISTAKE!

Am asezat heatsink-ul gresit si aproape am belit placa in the process.

Too close for comfort.



A trebuit sa desfac iar placa si sa curat spanul. Multe suruburi de desfacut. Thermal pad-uri de aranjat. The works.

New Arctic MX-4 TIM. Lots of it. GPU-ul asta mananca TIM dimineata, la pranz si seara. Suprafata heatspreadear-ului este imensa. The direct touch heatpipe design doesn't help also.

Am acoperit urmele minore de "damage" cu vopsea proaspata si am fost gata pentru o noua incercare.

I was such a n00b.



Bracket? FIXED!

NICE! NICE! NICE!



The little bits of plastic that broke off have been glued back with the all mighty superglue. This wasn't such a super choice as they literally jumped into my face when I attached the plastic shroud.



Still naked.



Am lipit din nou bucatele de plastic cu superglue insa totodata le-am ranforsat cu POXIPOL transparent. They were boxed in. Try and jump into my face now you little $#^^$#$%^#%$^@&!!!!!



Ready for ACTION SIR!!! All crews reporting!



La finalul caznelor la care am fost "supus" m-am uitat la placa si mi-am spus: daca mai si merge cum trebuie totul e perfect!

Vedeti voi, atunci cand te bagi intr-o treaba si vrei sa demonstrezi ceva, e bine sa lasi indoielile pentru mai tarziu. Daca crezi in ceva go for it. La final indiferent daca pierzi poti macar sa spui ca ai incercat. Daca castigi atunci ai privilegiul de a te imbata cu nectarul succesului. Sweet success makes you want more and more.

Intre ceea ce my gut was telling me si ceea ce imi spunea ratiunea eram sigur ca placa va merge. Call it whatever you want I was sure I had a winner in my hand.

First POST! BAM!



Driver installed.

Flawless.



Va spuneam ca nu am avut nici o placa GTX 470 back in the day. Eram sub impresia ca placa asta Thermi o sa urle din tot rarunchii si carcasa mea Bitfenix Colossus o sa decoleze atunci cand voi da o cheie GTX-ului.

Surpriza. Ventilatorul a fost extrem de manierat si placa destul de silentioasa pentru o solutie blower.

Dupa o scurta investigatie am aflat si raspunsul la aceasta situatie. Placa are un profil de ventilator silent si in full load ajunge easily la 90C in stare stock. Barbecue anyone?

Cand am vazut temperatura de 90C @ 2620 rpm am zis ca am montat gresit heatsink-ul sau nu am aplicat suficienta pasta insa dupa ce am setat un profil agresiv pentru viteza ventilatorului si am observat o temperatura maxima de 64C @ 4770 rpm dupa cateva teste 3Dmark, toate indoielile mele au disparut. Ceva insa trebuie sa precizez: YOU DON'T WANT THE FAN @ 4770 rpm! Trust me.

This card is @100%! Sheesh! What a relief!

You got me there! Once a Thermi always a Fermi!



Si uite asa am avut parte de niste "verdeata" dupa atat carne. IT'S ALIVE!

Placa asta nu va mai fi niciodata cum a fost insa ceea ce face ca sa simt ceva warm inside of me, este faptul ca am salvat-o de la pieire.

From the brink of destruction to salvation. From certain death to a new beginning. This card lived to fight another day.

All wasn't just sunshine and rainbows. Dupa cateva operatii de desfacere, chiar daca am folosit o surubelnita corespunzatoare, suruburile sant deja "obosite". Call it whatever you want, masura anti-tampering sau accent pus pe cost, these newer cards aren't built to last. Regardless, I will always buy whatever tickles my fancy.



Daca va vine sa credeti au trecut doar 10 ani de cand placa asta roamed in the wild and it feels like a lifetime ago.

We live fast but we don't stop to ask ourselves if we live better.

FULL SPEED AHEAD!

Cya later with more stuff!

Mersi db00m.

The next episodes will represent a return to the not so distant past. 20+ years ago ain't that much, or is it? Time as we all know is kind of relative.

Salut pishky. Faine metale ai acolo. GTX 580 si GTX 590 in full armor.

Din pacate nu am nici un setup de water cooling asa ca nu le voi putea da drumul sa zburde. Prin urmare iti recomand sa ai grija de fetili alea. Some time from now they will for sure be collectible.

Multumesc pentru gand dar sant nevoit sa te refuz deocamdata.

There's nothing that I can't fix as I can do it in the MIX!!!



More laterz dudes!!!

L.E. De saptamana trecuta talciocurile din Brasov sant inchise. Cand se vor deschide? Nimeni nu poate sti. In orice caz am destula marfa de aranjat.

Hotline Miami 1&2 - Workout Mix

Many moons ago am cumparat un procesor AMD K7 Slot A la 750MHz.

Pana aici nimic deosebit. Ceea ce insa m-a durut, si aici nu ma refer la portofel, a fost faptul ca procesorul era/ESTE KAPUT.

Totusi, dupa ani de zile, inca am ceva neterminat cu procesorul asta.

Vanzatorul a fost adamant ca procesorul funtioneaza. Eu nu l-am contrazis insa am inghitit galusca si am zis, o relicva din vremuri "imemoriale" este mai buna decat zero relicva. Deh, iron logic is logic I guess.

Why I didn't let go and I still hang to this CPU?

Well, procul asta are un nucleu de 1000MHz, ceea ce nu este de ici de colo. Precesoarele slot A la 1GHz sant ceva magic. Inca simt cu fiecare fibra cursa AMD vs Intel catre 1GHz. It gives me goosebumps.

Stiu ca nu exista garantii insa am ajuns la un punct in care sant decis sa incerc ceva.

Multe trasee sant intrerupte. Trasee extrem de fine. Efectiv conectorul procesorului a fost torsionat si deformat. La vremea cumpararii am reusit sa dau procesorului o forma care sa ii permita sa intre in slot dar nu i-am dat o cheie.

Long story short. Recent am desfacut din nou procesorul si am verificat toate traseele pe o parte. Surpriza! Doar unul era intrerupt.

Prin urmare I WANT TO BELIEVE!

Inca ceva. Daca va functiona am de gand sa fac un hard mod pentru 1GHz. Rezistor desoldering, multiplier si cache divider aka tot tacamul. Inca nu am si nici nu cred ca voi avea prea curand un Gold Finger Device.

The way I see this: I have nothing to loose!

Frumos, un proiect care merita toata atentia (si multe ore/zile de munca). Traseele pot fi refacute cu sarma de cupru din cea mai fina (lite individuale din ceva cabluri audio), pentru vias e buna lita din poza sau poti folosi terminale de la circuite integrate vechi/neimportante/defecte.

Atentie la cache, QC30 cred ca inseamna 300MHz (cache divider original 2/5) si nu 3.0ns, deci exista posibilitatea sa nu "duca" 333MHz cand urci procesorul la 1000.

Yep, memoria aia CACHE o sa fie calcaiul lui Ahile if I get the CPU working at all that is.

Clar sarma mai subtire pentru multe zone. O sa vad ce o sa reusesc.

Daca nu 1000, macar un 900(300) sau 950(317). Tot ar fi ceva.

Nice
Sunt curios ce solutie o sa adopti pentru faimoasa diferenta de nivel dintre die si frame (asta daca nu a fost operata deja).

Am facut rost in ultima perioada de un exemplar de la Gigabyte si e dezastru, vreo 2 mm diferenta.
Solutii ar fi mai multe, insa fiecare cu plusuri si minusuri (mai mult minusuri): inlaturat frame-ul; lasat cum e si adaugat jumatate de tub de pasta; folosit un thermal pad (?); adaugat intre die si talpa cooler-ului un copper shim de marimea die-ului; luat din inaltimea frame-ului etc.

Probabil solutia ce mai eleganta e un cooler cu o talpa care nu e plata pe toata suprafata, ci are o "adancitura" in zona die-ului. Insa nu mai e stock placa

L.E.: Observ acum ca ai scris 9700 (as in non-Pro), banuiesc ca si varianta asta e predispusa la problema respectiva, insa nu am experiente first hand.

I'll investigate the "problem".

Sincer nu eram la curent cu chestia asta. You learn something all the time. Me and ATI aren't so well acquainted.

Am cateva copper shims facute dintr-un shim mai mare de la un kit 775 Scythe insa nu cred ca vor fi necesare.

Voi investiga amanunti situatia si voi raporta tot ce voi gasi.

Inainte de toate insa am deja 2 placi plus 9700-ele de testat.

I'm not sweating too much!

Los Del Rio - Macarena

Finally! I got one of my old computers back! I retired this relic of times gone by and I'm prepared to make it GREAT AGAIN!!! Calcul asta a avut viata grea. Day and night a mers si mers. Din cate stiu, placa de sunet onboard facea probleme in her later years. L-am vandut in 2007 dupa ce am tras si eu de el circa 3 ani de zile. Nu mai imi amintesc cu exactitate.

Are mare nevoie de some TLC!!!



In alta ordine de idei, pozele pentru episodul Slot 1 sant gata demult insa "viata" nu m-a lasat sa respir si sa ma inspir asa ca va trebui sa mai asteptati nitel.

Cya later!

@Robert B, la cit RTCW a bagat placa aia, ar trebui sa stie sa joace singura, am bagat o tura cap-coada inainte sa ti-o trimit.

Super tare. Back in the day am jucat foarte putin RTCW. Poate ca ar fi timpul acum. Asa am facut si cu Quake 1 si 2 care le-am jucat la 20+ ani de la aparitie.

Placuta ta asteapta cuminte sa fie luata la intrebari. Vine si randul ei.
