Here in Edmonton, i was criusing the used computer sites and i stumbled across this website. Now i don't know what this guy was thinking, but this is what he has to offer for computer parts that are mac.
He has some other parts there too but none that i want to get. Remember, all these prices are in Canadian funds.
Hey steve, that sonnet i bought off of you, will that work on a 133 fsb? I hooked it up in this QS and pressed the cuda for 5 sec. I get a startup chime, but no video. Also, i get a faint burning smell from the cpu. Is any of this a problem?
It was sold as 100MHz bus, it could work with 133, but would need the multiplyer taking down I would think. Don't know where that is on a sonnet though. 7455's don't like the air over 1.5 gigs, you're looking at 1.862 there. You need an 11 multiplyer. At the mo you are set at 14. Think it's a resistor change.
The cpu has a faint burnt plastic and metal smell to it, also when i touch the cpu, it feels like it's 100 degrees celcius. Really hot to the touch. I'm wondering if the board may be fried. The guy i bought it from says that everything works fine. I also did some apple troubleshooting and from what they say, i should reset the cuda, the pram and such. I get the chime, i get the fans and cd running, but no video. I have tried my 6200, my 5200 and a rage 128. All don't show video and the unit smells like it's overheating. Any ideas?
Those little fans can be a tad noisey, if memory serves me well, they are 60 x 60 x 25 mm. There is always the chance of getting a quieter fan or one that is adjustable in voltage or just plain old use the 5v supply.
JJ, If you need a 60x60x25mm fan I have a Silenx model that I'd be happy to send you for shipping. It has the molex adapter and I think I can find the silicon mounts. I just don't know if the shipping is worth the cost of the fan, I gave about $14.00 for it and I used it for ten minutes(maybe) since it just won't fit in my DA like In thought it would. If you're interested let me know.
