Thinking this one will go to the garage for use on my bench, replacing an old tower machine I have there. Save quite a bit of bench space there. Now, just need yet another SSD for the Atom. Will likely refurbish the tower and put it in a yard sale for $20 or so.
    Good to hear Greg. Did you replace all caps, or just the ones that looked bad?

    Cheers

      Just the bad ones. Checked the voltage on some of the others. Pure DC, no ripple at all.
      About to raid the source board for the rest of its components so I'll have a few spares on hand.

        Just a quick comment: an ESR (Equivalent Series Resistance) meter is invaluable for checking capacitors. They can be used in circuit and can be purchased for about $30.

          What processor you running in it? didnt notice above... seems like yall like your older slower hardware. I am always on the future more power growth!!!!

          look in my sig.. that is being replaced with a dual quad core xeon W5580 and 48gb ram...

            You plan on automating the neighborhood with that rig??

            I have a small computer Intel Duo with 4 gigs... My 2 main purposes when buying the computer, at most it uses 50 watts... generally hovers around 30. And I still needed a serial port which is hard to find in newer hardware. I hate dealing with usb to serial adapters and try to avoid them.

            It's running Homeseer and SQL Express (i run a script to update a database on all device changes)... CPU does average around 50 percent, along with memory... but its quick enough and solid.

              possibly
              BlueIris or something like that eventually

              so while it draws more power... it will draw less than a few that would serve as individual functions...
              so that is what I keep telling myself.

              with the lights my kids leave on and that is acceptable I can live with a pc on... well there are 2 others on all the time too... hah

                The D525MW board has an Intel Atom dual core processor integral to the board running at 1.8 GHz (the new board runs at 1.86 GHz). Running only HS and a couple of support programs, the CPU usage only ever peaks at about 15%, with no noticeable delays running events/scripts. Some of my scripts even run for nearly an hour (Five instances simultaneously, downloading videos and snaps rom my cameras every morning) and even this has never impacted the performance. No need to run a Cray 1 when this does the trick quite nicely and cheaply, while sitting on a shelf taking up almost no space at all.

                  I think this will NOT be used for my HS box.. I think it is too much of a power hog. not sure if I am going to use it...
                  last night while installing an OS on it in the garage it popped a gfi (garage outlets must be on a gfi)

                  so there was my track lighting (non led) and a small beer fridge plugged into that circuit too...

                  well wonder what will happen when I plug it into my automation area in the basement???

                  not sure which of the 2 I have but it is either...

                    Woke up dead.

                    Yea I had a similar setup when I first started. Main server with VM. Found my electrical bill almost doubled with that thing. Now smaller is better

                        LCD TV in kitchen tuner started to act up yesterday. It would work fine for about 10 minutes then the picture would get bars on it slowly until the entire screen was bars.

                        I am posting here even though it is not a computer rather an LCD TV.

                        It fit just right here and was just the right size and color for the Kitchen corner under the cabinets area.

                        I replaced it temporarily with another LCD TV that doesn't really look as nice. This is very low on the WAF. So today....

                        I took apart the old LCD TV. Many screws here. Power supply is encased in a metal shell but it is a separate board.

                        Found one bulging electrolytic capacitor so replacing it. I didn't have any around so I had to purchase 10 of these.

                        440V / 100 uF electrolytic capacitor. (also marked JH CD263 + 105˚ C T-5)

                        Here is a picture of the defective capacitor. It was easy to remove from the power supply board. Rest of the caps look fine and board doesn't really show any signs of over heating.

                            Thank you. I have never played with an LCD TV and never had one go bad to date.

                            Yes; will post a picture of the power supply board and electrolytic capacitor shortly.

                            It was a PITA to replace it yesterday with another LCD TV. (this is the WAF LCD TV that wife uses to watch cooking shows every day while she is cooking).

                            It was a Sunday crisis.

                            There are 3 LCD's in the kitchen area (the other 2 are wall flush mounted) and only this one and the laundry room LCD TV is used the most.

                            It was a PITA to take the LCD TV apart. Many screws. The main LCD board is encased in metal with another 10 screws and then the power supply had four screws holding it in place.

                            The power supply board is modular and easy to remove to work on.

                              Pete you amaze me with your posts sometimes and your setup. I can only imagine how things look in your house. 3 LCD's in the kitchen alone??? I finally was just allowed to put in one and she only uses it to play her music and could give 2 ##%$ if it could do anything else .

                                In the kitchen the only one is really used is the under the counter one and the other two just look nice (flush wall mounted).

                                I have TV's in sync (well laundry room too) such that if they are all on they show the same DVR stuff as that is what is always watched.

                                Last week here moved a joggler touch tablet over to the kitchen disk area. I do not know why there is a desk / telephone area.
