Silent computer - upgrade of hardware

    Alas, this motherboard has left not the best impression and I was about to buy anything instead of it. Selecting substitute I was hesitating between Asus, Intel, and other manufacturers. You will not guess what choice has made the person tired of glitch product of Foxconn company. So, after several days of selecting I have bought the motherboard on 965 chipset: Foxconn G9657MA-8KS2H … No, you have not guessed... I’m not a masochist… The reason of so strange selection is simple... previous and new boards are completely identical by layout of details, the location of processor, chipset coincides in millimeters and even majority of MOSFET’s situated in the same place!
   Such constancy of computer hardware manufacturers is advantageous for us very much, and replacement of motherboard turns into routine, completely simple operation. So it has been made literally for a pair of incomplete days without a slightest effort, it was not necessary to bend any tube at all! That’s it...

    So, let’s go step by step. I test the new board during three days in order to avoid undesirable surprises after laborious assembly of a silent computer, not to mention the loss of a guarantee in case of radiators disassembling... Though, judging by responsiveness of Foxconn employees, they will ignore you even with radiators :)

    By the way, pay attention to the size of chipset radiator. I specially photographed them together. Judging by the fact that in i965 its size less twice, there will be no reason to worry about, one tube would suffice as well... (if somebody will do it anew)

Non-constructive thoughts about modding...

    All began when one day my neighbour, he is Automatic Control Engineer, came and started to beg me to give him one diode. When I asked him why, he typed modding in a search engine. And it had a great effect on me. I was sick about it. Maybe there is nothing accidental in the world and this modding seed fell into good soil. All my life I was interested in design.
