Broken component - can someone help?


Recommended Posts

Hey guys...first post here but frequent lurker.

 

I have a problem that I'm hoping a member or possibly someone from DFI can help me with.

 

I purchased an Infinity from a member and during transit the aftermarket heatsink fan attached to the southbridge came off. At some point while it rattled around inside the anti-static bag it knocked off a component situated near the southbridge. I have been told that it is a crystal oscillator but this is unconfirmed.

 

I am trying to find out what the part does, whether or not its critical (I have not attempted to fire up the board yet until I know more about the part) and whether I can attempt to connect it with wires as the 2 legs broke off cleanly, or if not usable in this manner, how can I obtain a new one.

 

I have provided a picture from a working motherboard that shows the part in question. Across the top of the component is written "12.0F4C".

 

Thanks in advance for any help that you can throw my way.

You're a local guy...talk about a small world...and no, I'm not military. If I was military, I would be RETIRED military...little bit of gray on my head. OK, lots of gray.

 

Where are you located? How about sending me a PM when you get a chance and let me know how I can get a hold of you.

I have to admit...it got my attention. It has been shipped via FedEx and I should receive it on Monday.

 

Actually, he offered to have it repaired for me, but I opted for doing it myself instead of shipping the board across the country and back.

 

Way awesome customer service is all that I can say!
