I have two 840AVs, both require heavy restoration and one is missing its CPU. 🙁
@Horun: The 840AV is one of the most valuable retail Macs (not counting the special/limited editions). A working mainboard easily sells for 100 bucks or more. Keep that in mind before giving it away and then finding it on ebay the next day.
Thanks, I do not plan on giving it away unless it will not fit in the other case (from a 8100, looks same) or one I stumble on for very cheap. Also the PSU is shot. Cat piss ! Yes I should have wrapped it in plastic or put in a box instead of just sitting on the garage floor. Guess I can take one from a 7300/7500 and rewire it......
My cap replacement order (for a PSU) was canceled, they ran out of stock. So went to Digikey and ordered from them. So am replacing the crappy Fuhjyyu TM with Nichicon brand but different part numbers than oredered before. Getting these: UPA1C222MHD3TO and UPA1C332MHD. Not as low ESR as wanted but still good low impedence and good Amps/ripple. The PSU needs 2- 2200 and 4-3300 so ordered double that 😁
Any comments or advice on if I should have ordered a different bunch please let me know.
