Motherboard Teardown: DFI LanParty DK X48-T2RSB+

Hey there.

This is my motherboard 3 years ago. The motherboard was really great for overclocking, plus the catchy UV-reactive color slots. Until, suddenly the MOSFET burned when I turn on the computer.

Don’t really know why, I assume it might be from ESD, because I don’t use any chassis before. My board are just laying on my desk.

Even the MOSFET already burned, I tried to remove it from the board, and viola! it still works!

The Audio jack housing is broken, intentionally, because I want to see inside the connectors.

Ok, Here we go~

Overclocking a Locked Core i5 – 2400 (Sandy Bridge)

This is my current overclock,

Daily OC on 6 July 2014

Daily OC on 6 July 2014

for daily use, rock-stable, no BSOD’s

with extremely low voltage, so heat dissipation is very low.

My pc is almost dead silent; the 7200RPM Seagate Hard drive is the noisiest in the system. There are 4x 120mm fans, running at 650rpm (sometimes 0 RPM if the room temperature below than 23 degree celsius).

 

Ok, This is my first time posting in my own WordPress CMS and this is on my own home server. Wish me luck to continue maintain this server

Thanks for reading!
