Hehehe! You know, sometimes when a team constantly lives at the top, I think it is too easy to forget that you have to work to stay there.

Good luck! The metal ZIF bars are a pain, I am fortunate enough to have a board with the plastic levers that integrate into the ZIF socket. Just take your time putting things back together and you will be just fine.

after that i resoldered my exchange coil (6 windings) and then BINGO. did it works flawlessly is folding proteins since 3h. Hmmm. That sounds like you had a cold solder joint. What happens is that you heat the solder too much and you don't heat one of the points that you are trying to join. What ha...

i cant find any other damaged caps, regulators or coils...but the pcb is burnt (black smoke) where the broken coil was. i cant solder the new one correct in because one of the holes cant be desoldered...so i cant measure any voltage at this coil...but at the other one that is ( so i think) is respo...

Purrkur, I thought if you use a UDMA2 as master and a PIO3 as slave the master would work at UDMA2 speed. Is that wrong? Yep. That is true. I can't really remember the speed of PIO3 (I think it was 13.3 MB/s) but I know for sure that PIO4 is 16.6 MB/s. If you have a second device running UDMA 33 or...

My DVD player for instance has an ATA/ATAPI-5 interface which translates into Ultra DMA66. So you are wrong when you ...
