    Yeah that should be fine. I have a Super Micro P3TDDE and it is very picky about processors being matched.

    You can get a pair of powerline ethernet adapters on Amazon for under $40, and they'll be a hell of a lot more reliable than wireless.

    And as long as the entire house is on the same distribution...

    Steam hasn't changed their pricing structure for publishing commercial games since they started being a 3rd party publisher. I've read from various sources that it's anywhere from 30/70 to 50/50...

    Tantalum capacitors don't have a wet electrolyte, they can't leak, they just explode randomly.

    I'd recommend against shotgun replacing them as well, if they're not bad, leave them alone. I used to...

    If there are any potentiometers inside the monitor, I'd suggest blasting them with deoxit gold or equivalent electronic cleaning spray. The copper wipers inside potentiometers oxidize over time and...

    So in this case it looks like the floppy controller clock is asynchronous from the CPU, so the faster floppy seeks is likely because the CPU is able to move data around faster.

    WD40 is not a lubricant, it's a penetrating oil designed to free stuck parts. Never use it as a lubricant because the light oils evaporate and leave a gummy residue behind.

    There's a user on this forum that sells those foam inserts, texelec or something.

    For the servo, I'd suggest 3-n-1 oil on it.

    Motherboards back in those days usually cascaded clocks off of a main clock source, usually the CPU clock. If the floppy disk is seeking faster, it could be the result of either the ISA bus which it...

    The reason the modules need to be installed in pairs is because the 386SX has a 16 bit data bus. 30 pin SIMMs are only 8 bits wide, you need two of them to make up the 16 bit bus.

    If you had a...

    Might consider getting some deoxit gold and spraying the pots, sounds like they're getting oxidized and crusty.

    Do it with the monitor powered off of course and give it a couple of hours to dry.

    IBM machines from that era are notorious for capacitor failure. Check the motherboard for bulging/leaking capacitors, likewise the same with the power supply.

    Parity memory is not required and wouldn't benefit his setup at all. Any module will work, bar the system specific modules like IBM made.

    I've tried thicker grease used for ball joints and moly grease used for wheel bearings, it's too thick and causes the motor to overheat.
