I'd suggest starting a new thread for more pictures.
Mod mode off
I post historical stuff on boards because I really do get many emails from posters here asking about history and info, and many thankyous for doing so.
I've said this so many times...
If you scrap escrap blindly for a year you'll find 90% of what's out there
Do So if for 10 years you'll find 95%
I've been in tech for quite a while and some boards still throw me; in class (like yours) and even in history (again like yourself).
I've sent stuff to Chris that got emails that are best summed up by saying "???"!
I've gotten to the point where I can boost previous posts and say I'm 99% right 99% of the time
Some things throw me off.
MLS has become an invaluable help as a buffer to challenge me and we've never been more than a grade apart
So again let's see what MLS has to say on that board that's got me questioning but in the end; you can at least know it's a or b and have an idea.
So to cut to the chase here:
If it works sell it whole and get more money
99% of power supplies will be low grade. The rest are split between midgrade and peripheral. But any power supply with a board worth peripheral is still worth $25 doa on ebay and hundreds if if works. We're talking gold connectors hand made silver wire power supplies from falcon and AvAd.
Be it the 5000 watt unit I use to drive dual AMD 9590s and triple R7 cards or server supplies that are half rack 4 pice cubes. They may scrap as peripheral but dos you can ebay them for $100 and $350 respectively.
I've posted every exception I could find here. But those aside if it works sell it whole. If it's dead and bizarre post photos; someone here has seen one
And hey MLS what's that big board on the final pic. Or anyone else for that matter. I get (honestly) somewhat annoyed, when someone finds something I've not seen. Makes me feel like I missed something and all that. :)
