41  Economy / Computer hardware / [WTB] Platinum & Gold PSUs working but with burnt connectors USA & Canada only on: February 13, 2016, 09:11:00 PM
I am looking for working Platinum,Gold and Titanium 80+ rated PSUs with burnt or melted 6 or 8 pin PCIE connectors. The PSU needs to still be functioning. I am looking for name brand only and would like to buy multiple of the same unit. Looking for EVGA, Rosewill, Zalman, Antec, Seasonic, Thermaltake, Silverstone, and maybe others.
 PM me with what you have and how many maybe also send a few pictures if it sounds like we can work something out. North America only.  I am new on Bitcointalk, but have been on Litecointalk for almost 2 years. There are a few people on here that know me from Litecointalk and would vouch for me. Thanks  Smiley

Any pointers on repairing burnt power connectors on cubes ?

Here is the best, quickest, and easiest way to deal with a burnt connection in my opinion. It also allows about 3/16in additional contact between the power connector and the pins. Sorry its a bit of a hack. and you must absolutely be sure to put the connector on clip side up, ground wires up since the will not be a receiver connector on the board anymore.

The burnt connector will be brittle, and easy to break up with a pair of side cutters. Do it in small pieces until just the very bottom is left. Then pry up gently with a screwdriver to dislodge the 2 plastic retainers and it will slide right off. Then take a piece of 220 grit sand paper to clean up the pins. Clean everything up and carefully push the power connector on the bare pins while using a flashlight to make sure its on right. It will now go further on the pins making a better connection.
