Tested that 7300GT AGP, since the damn thing refused to output signal on my test system with the ECS mobo and VIA chipset (Radeon HD3650 did the same..), so i had to get another mobo in order to get signal.. Not sure why some GPUs wont post on some boards, the (shitty) wonders of PC HW i guess..
Tested a game on the 240MB Conner, that have 1 bad sector, and cant make it so far to disappear/ relocate.. But the drive just works, but slowly, but it works...
Wonder does someone here using HDDs with bad sectors ? For example a drive have bad sectors, but when they are isolated the drive works. So does someone uses some drives with isolated bad sectors from years to tell how do they perform, and are there any problems, as i wonder.. I did never do that, but started isolating bad sectors and giving new life to some HDDs.. I think if the sectors are isolated, and the rest of a drive is fine, then there should be no problems.
This AT PSU is insane, the build quality is like from an IBM system, or Delta/ SeaSonic, did not expect that... The fan even is so well made, with one hand squeezing it, it WONT move/ flex at all DAMN, that is what i call build quality... Most fans are such garbage i can even snap/ brake them if i squeeze with half force, not full. But this fan naaaa is like is made fro metal or something 🤣... Also everything on this power unit feels more then well made, the case i think is steel, since is same thing, if i force the case it wont bend, at least if i dont try very hard.. And the caps appear to be Matsuhita/ Panasonic 🤣.... The wires are also very well made, they are still soft, not hard like plastic, that will fall apart, i see on other cheap crap PSUs... They should have gave the name of "Quality of the Quality" for this PSU unit...
The moment i saw all of that, my test AT PSU was removed and send for sale, and this unit will take its place... Now people here that see this post will be able to know, that this NOname Taiwanese brand is Delta/ SeaSonic level of quality....
