Well I may see if I can find a replacement cap or a local place that will fix a cap for me. Its just the one and its not super bad yet, but with as hard as I plan pushing this thing I can foresee issues developing.
Also I popped out the Opty 165 that came with it and put my 4200 x2 manny back in and got some good results so far. If anyone wants to update my entry on the front page here's the validation http://valid.canardpc.com/show_oc.php?id=2578968
The volts are a bit high at 1.55 and probably the max I can use on the air cooling I have. I'm getting about 63 or 64C when stress testing, so I doubt I can raise it anymore and still keep it cool. Though I am on a relatively small heatsink, so if I upgrade to a better one I may get some more headroom. Looks like I have a good manny though to get it over 2.6
It feels like it has a lot more to give as well. Weren't they known for topping out at about 2.6?
I'm also wondering if the opty that came with the SLI-DR was abused. It could get up to about 2.6 with 2 gigs of RAM, but when I put in 4 I had a heck of a time getting it stable at any more than 2.2 or so. Oh well I always have that other CCBBE 165 I can try out.
Maybe when my MX-4 gets here I'll swap it in and see how it does.
