#2159022 Looking for Recommendations on PSU Cable Mods

Posted by olokul on 13 March 2017 - 06:58 AM

A quick look and it seems those are about the only ones out for that PSU,   Sadly the Corsair CX line wasnt that great, although they have greatly improved the CX???M line no one make a kit for them.    You could get a pin remover and sleeve them yourself otherwise it looks like you might be stuck with the Bitfenix Alchemy cables.

#2136932 car audio system running off computer PSU

Posted by olokul on 16 February 2015 - 06:01 AM

Ok guy need a little help, here is my old system



Its a very old picture but gives you the platform im working with.  So this is my work toolbox, i do maintenance on large CNC machines and the guys and i like to listen to music while we work so i threw this together a few years back.


RF punch 200.4 running fronts for tweeters and rears for mids on a set of polk audio m30 bookshelf speakers

RF punch 500.2 running at 250 watts @ 2 ohms on 1 channel for a alpine type r 8" sub

O2 headphone amp plugged into my iphone all running off a silver stone 850watt PSU


While this setup does ok Id really like to improve on it.   Since i had a wisdom tooth pulled out last tuesday it gave me a week off work and a lot of laying around to decide to upgrade my setup.


so with that being said here is what i have come up with with spare parts from friends


Alpine 9887 headunit + bluetooth attachment

Focal solid1 amp powering 4 Alpine SWR-8D2 8" subs @ 4 ohms

Focal solid2 amp powering Focal 165A3 3-way component speakers

hoping to use the same 850watt Silverstone PSU from last setup, if not i have a 1200watt sitting at home.


Wheels on box will be upgraded to 6x2" wheels giving me 7.5" of clearance under the box so i can fit up to a 6x55x18.5 sealed or ported box underneath the tool box.   Components will have custom boxes made for the top of the tool box.


This is where im hoping some of you guys can jump in and help me.   I know i can run the HU off the PSU but every time i turn off the PSU or unplug the cable i loose all setting on the Headunit.   Is there a way i can run a small set of like AA's @ 12v to keep the memory on the headunit for being wiped out?

#2078408 Ram voltages

Posted by olokul on 27 February 2013 - 03:33 PM

Its been a while since i played with that computer but i want to say the dram was 1.66v     I found a screen shot of them running at 7-9-7-24 @2032mhz @1.68v  but i dont know what any of the other volts were.      


one at 10-11-10-28 @ 2134mhz @1.69v  all of my higher volt runs were just single runs to see if they were stable enough to pass 3dmark11.  For everyday use i ran at 4.2ghz and 7-9-7-24 @ 1842ghz  @ 1.66v

im just going to quote this part out of the storie

"In 2006, Chavez’s son accidentally shot him in the back after the off-duty officer forgot that he had left the loaded .45-caliber pistol under the front seat of this Ford Ranger. The child was not in a safety seat at the time."

lets point out a few thing here

1 child was not in a safety seat at the time. fail as parent
2 off-duty officer forgot that he had left the loaded .45-caliber pistol under the front seat a epic fail as A) an officer B) a gun owner
3 as an officer/gun owner how can you not teach your kids about gun safety.

now there will probably be some stupid gun law that comes out of this because he was to stupid or lazy to take care of his gun. /end rant for today
