Hardware News : BlizzardPPC repair service

Hardware News

ACube Systems is happy to announce the launch of a new repair service for broken 603e PPC CPUs on BlizzardPPC cards.
The broken CPU will be removed and replaced with one of the following CPUs:

- 603e @ 200 Mhz - BGA
- 603e @ 300 Mhz - BGA

The prices for the service are:

- 603e @ 200 Mhz : Euro 165,00 + shipping and local vat
- 603e @ 300 Mhz : Euro 199,00 + shipping and local vat
- optional adhesive metallic cooler with fan (40x40x10 mm) : Euro 9



To be noted:

- we won't be able to replace broken 040/060CPUs or other onboard components, and we won't upgrade to a faster CPU a working BlizzardPPC board (since the reworking is not risk free)

- given the age of these boards we predict to be able to repair around 75% of broken boards. This means that not all the boards can be repaired

- we don't overclock, the CPUs are genuine parts rated at the reported speeds, we don't replace the onboard crystals, only the CPU multiplier setup will be changed if required

- the 300 Mhz model may need an additional cooling solution

DNetc results (300 Mhz CPU versus 210 Mhz CPU)

core 0: 911.134 key/sec - 607.283 key/sec
core 1: 968.609 key/sec - 664.135 key/sec
core 2: 827.675 key/sec - 550.799 key/sec
core 5: 994.333 key/sec - 662.668 key/sec
core 6: 962.086 key/sec - 641.639 key/sec
core 0: 4.235.245 nodes/sec - 2.823.000 nodes/sec

It's a very good piece of news

I'm also wondering if they can repair damaged CSPPC. If so, that would be great.
Anyway Acube roxxxx

Very good job. Keep it up.

 Re: BlizzardPPC repair service
it would be perfect to get 604e replacement also.

First to get hold some 604e @ 300Mhz and then attempt to replace them (in CSPPC is more difficult due the lack of room around the CPU)

Thanks ACube!

These guys keep coming up with surprises. Let's hope things get sorted between the legal parties and we get some SAM boards with OS4 released.. I know it's a big ask, but fingers crossed eh?

Rude!
