Looking for vrm and cap replacement service.

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I am building a Athlon 64 FX-60 system on a DFI Lanparty NF4 Ultra-D motherboard paired with a ATI Radeon X1800 XT and i plan on heavily OCIng. These things were known for blowing VRMs and caps while OCing when they were new so i don't trust it after 11 years with a heavy OC.

TLDR:
I am looking for someone who could recap and replace the VRMs on the motherboard and graphics card.

Thats a very old CPU and GPU. What do you plan to use the system for, if I may ask?
New rig

It dosen't make sense, replacing VRMS.
Transitors do not degrade over time.
Capacitors may or may not degrade overtime.

My suggestion is to just install boot and go.
Ignore the idea of needing to replace stuff. I rekon is not needed and impracticall

Unless you know how to do it yourself.

I would go arround local computer stores kindly asking if anyone knows how to do it

Still, whats the point?
If its known to blow, changing to new vrms is not going to help.

What will is modifiying the VRMS for more power
Although you could modify vrms for more power, The copper tracks could no be cabple of transfering large ammounts of currents, Therfore pointless

I know how to do it.
I am just not good enough with a soldering iron to be comfortable doing it myself.

Even with a soldering Iron, Not any soldering Iron will do.

It will require a high power soldering iron/ tip. and running on 24V or less, Otherwize electiricity damage can occur and kill the GPU using irons that run on 220V/110V

I had tried any components capacitors off a normall mobo, a normall soldering is not hot enough to be able to do the job properly

For the most part i am just concerned about system longevity. These old high TDP systems where not known for their reliability. It wasn't uncommon for motherboards to blow caps and vrms when OCing. While this is mostly a showpiece i will be using it and i would like it to last indefinitely. Parts for these old high end systems are becoming increasingly difficult to come by.

If you do not want to blow anything, DO NOT OverVoltage

Have a fan directly blowing onto VRMS for both gpu and mobo and mobo nb

For the caps if you don't want to do it yourself.
