Capacitor Replacement

In the element base of the computer (and not only) there is one bottleneck – electrolytic capacitors. They contain electrolyte, electrolyte is a liquid. Therefore, heating such a capacitor leads to its failure, since the electrolyte evaporates. And heating in the system unit is a regular thing.

Therefore, replacing capacitors is a matter of time. More than half of the failures of motherboards of the middle and lower price category are caused by dried or swollen capacitors. Even more often, for this reason, computer power supplies break down.

Installing a cooler on a processor

Background to the experiment: CPU cooling (LGA775 socket) was provided by the CNPS7700-AICu cooling system. Intel Pentium D930 processor, was purchased in 2005. At that time, quite powerful and expensive. Therefore, I did not save on cooling. Bought a Zalman CNPS7700-AICu. For four years he regularly performed the task assigned to him. There are no complaints about cooling the processor now, but it has become pretty noisy.

Therefore, I decided to send the old man to retire and started repairs. It is repair, because replacement is laziness and squandering, at least in this situation. In place of the noisy fan, I decided to put Floston, because the noise from it is less than from the dead, but it costs a penny in comparison with its predecessor. Continue reading

Computer and vision

This article will discuss the effects of computers on vision. Initially, the article was focused on CRT-monitors (tube), which could seriously impair vision with regular work on the computer.

On the other hand, capitalism did not win everywhere and in the vastness of our vast Motherland there are many where tube monitors are in use and many simply do not have the opportunity to buy LCDs for various reasons. Therefore, I decided to add this article and break it into two parts. The first is about LCD monitors, the second is about CRT tubes. Continue reading
