    Only Alienware is full polymer as far as I'm concerned. It's not really to be concerned because standard electrolytics do just as well. However, now that prices are so low, there's hardly a reason...

    Well that's good. I haven't really had my hands on any of the new stuff, but my dad has given me a few Optiplexes and a Precision from the place where he works. But they are old.

    It's really a shame because Dell was actually a company I could trust..back in the day. Now they're just as bad as everyone else.

    Maybe I'd buy some of the enterprise stuff, but even then, I'd be...

    yeah i think its probably snubbing the bridge rectifiers output because you would see the more traditional "box" line rated cap if it was on AC. the red film cap is just a standard DC film. I think...

    Now this is a transient filter!

    Hey guys,

    I'm working on one of my antiquated PCs at the moment. Trying to revive it from the dead! It's a Dell Dimension 8100 with the profound Intel socket 423 and the even rarer use of...

    That appears to have APFC. The actual unit has a voltage selector switch which usually means it's an older design that lacks APFC.

    Shush! I wanna see a 150W Gold! :D

    That might be a good idea, but PicoPSU is too expensive for my taste. Unless I'm missing something, it's just a simple DC->DC converter with flying leads.

    Wow....if you are going to go through that much trouble to fake it, would it be that hard/that much money to get a real one? So much nerve, but it's China, where it's the least of anyone's worries.

    On a decent PSU the power distribution shouldn't be normal, and not biased to a particular voltage, like they do on cheaper units to make their ratings "higher'.
