Re: Voodoo 5 5500 AGP Compatibility Problem

A disappointing update.I was unable to work on this computer for about a month and after coming back to it I've found that the Voodoo 5 has reverted to not turning on. It has the same symptoms it originally had where the fans all kick and then the system shuts off. There still appears to be …

Re: Voodoo 5 5500 AGP Compatibility Problem

I would heat up one side of the the capacitor and try to tip it towards the cold side. Be careful that you only push on it when the solder is fully melted or else you could rip off the pads underneath. If you can get it lifted up just a little on one side I would stick tweezers under it to prevent …

Re: Voodoo 5 5500 AGP Compatibility Problem

I got the new caps from mouser in today and swapped them out. It was a complete success! https://imgur.com/nLBsklX.jpg So for future reference, here is a mouser cart to get all the caps: https://www.mouser.com/ProjectManager/ProjectDetail.aspx?AccessID=60625a2313 (I like extra so there's more than …

Re: Voodoo 5 5500 AGP Compatibility Problem

I've only ever had one Tantalum fail on me, but it didn't go quietly. If I hadn't pulled power it probably would have gotten to flames. Here's what I'm going to go with for the Voodoo 5: https://www.mouser.com/ProjectManager/ProjectDetail.aspx?AccessID=60625a2313 10uF 16V: https://www.mouser.com/ …

Re: Voodoo 5 5500 AGP Compatibility Problem

I would not use Tantalums. I may be misinformed and I'm definitely biased. I have never even ordered one as far as I can remember. They were used on older motherboards but they fell out of use because (so I read) they don't handle ripple very well. [...] I'm not fully aware of the differences …

Re: Voodoo 5 5500 AGP Compatibility Problem

My guess as to why the intel board shuts off but the other doesn't is that the intel board detects some kind of over current condition on the AGP bus and shuts off but the other board doesn't any keeps going. I have 3 Voodoo 3s I've been meaning to get around to recapping. I have some 10uF 16V …

Re: Voodoo 5 5500 AGP Compatibility Problem

I forgot about the frequency, I can set it to use 100kHz. I pulled off one of the 10uF caps to measure as well. Here are how they measure at 10kHz and 100kHz: 100uF @ 10kHz = 61.7uF & 0.05ESR https://imgur.com/icBNyPL.jpg 100uF @ 100kHz = Overloaded https://imgur.com/QwuHcin.jpg 10uF @ 10kHz = 6.6uF …

Re: Voodoo 5 5500 AGP Compatibility Problem

I got a bit more aggressive with C106 and removed it. Out of circuit it measures as 63uF and 0.11ESR ( https://imgur.com/BC0SfLY ). Out of curiosity, I measure the now vacant spot for it and measured 34uF which would seem to make up for the missing 37uF from the removed part. I bought the ESR meter …

Re: Voodoo 5 5500 AGP Compatibility Problem

I updated the BIOS and that didn't make a difference. I was starting to set up both the motherboard and the Voodoo 5(which was also new) in another computer to reform the caps and after having the Voodoo 5 on for a few minutes C106 on the right here was hot enough to burn if you touched it: https:// …

Re: Voodoo 5 5500 AGP Compatibility Problem

I'm using a new 450W(overkill, I know) EVGA PSU. I also tried using the PSU from the other system the card worked in. Both responded the same way, a brief blip of power and then nothing. I did also try some cheap PSU from who knows where and it did not turn off. But the system did not POST either so …

Voodoo 5 5500 AGP Compatibility Problem

I have been acquiring parts for a while now to put together a new Windows 98 pc and I've hit a bit of a snag. Firstly, here are the pertinent parts I am trying to use: - AGP Voodoo 5 5500 (Rev A if that matters) - Intel D815EEA2U Motherboard (Emphasis on the U at the end for stock Taulatin support)( …
