Title: Random Säätöä
Created: 22.11.2006 15:18

Slightly tinkered with my Fujitsu P5730 workstation today.

Bought a Radeon HD 6850 with Accelero Twin Turbo II cooler for 50€. Since there was no way of fitting the huge GPU cooler next to the large CPU heatsink, I decided to toss the original fans and just zip-tie a 120mm one on instead. I also had to cut a bit from the fins, since they were making contact with the screws of CPU heatsink.

The stock 300W power supply also didn't have a PCI-E 6pin connector, so I had to mod my way around that. I took a spare PCI-E wire of unknown modular power supply, cut it apart and soldered the three yellows and blacks together. After that I ripped apart one of the S-ATA power connectors, soldered my wires there to the 12v line and reassembled the connector.

300W PSU might sound too small for this kind of setup, but the load test confirmed my calculations: It's close, but it's still sufficient since the computer won't crash even under full load.

The temperatures on Furmark & Orthos load were around 50'c for CPU and 78'c for GPU. The noise level is almost inaudible and in this case the loudest sound from the computer is the slight humm of HDD spinning.

DIY-projector in use.

Demolux overhead projector
17" Samsung LCD-panel with anti-glare coating removed
Some cardboard and tape for the cover.

Turned out extremely nice. It's big and ugly, but makes a good ~100" picture. Total cost for the sound and video setup ~50eur, so I'm pretty darn satisfied with the outcome.

Next step is to make thicker curtains to block the light from outside.

One unfortunate 8800 GTS G80 decided not to work with me anymore, so it has now a new job as a keychain.

Used heat gun to remove the chip from PCB and screws to hold it with the frame. The fitting is so tight that I couldn't remove the chip with my bare hands even if I wanted to.

Turned out quite nicely in my opinion.

I picked up an external hdd it's power supply from recycling bin in hope of getting a working enclosure for one of my drives.

When I first started to test it out, I noticed a whizzing sound coming inside the power supply and the HDD didn't spin up properly. After short moment with multimeter it turned out that the power supply was not giving out the right voltages.

I cracked the casing open and noticed three popped capacitors. I replaced one with new, but the two others were too bulky to fit inside the housing. So here is the solution.

After testing it again, it turned out that the HDD itself was working. Now i have 400GB external HDD.

Weirdo GPU:

Asus 3850X2 1GB

Kinda funky card, both fans run at full whopping 8000rpm all the time. Also they are not in right positions over the dual coolers.

Lucky me, this one has no warranty so i can do some improvements without worrying about warranty. If this card blows, it's game over :S
