The case will fit any 40mm x 40mm x 10mm fan, the Noctua fans I use are the NF-A4x10 5 volt version.

lamarax wrote: Sun Nov 22, 2020 8:54 pm Please note, the 'semi-official' Noctua NF-A4x10 5V fan will not run @ 3.3V as advertised, so take care to put the jumper on the 5V setting.
I think your fan is possibly faulty as the Noctua NF-A4x10 5V should work perfectly using the 3.3 volt jumper selection, albeit at a lower rpm.

They are one of my suppliers of choice for the Alliance memory modules unless buying direct, I have never had an issue with the authenticity of components supplied by Digikey.

Re: 128MB SDRAM w/ AS4C32M16SB-7TCN

The AS4C32M16SB-7TCN modules work without issues. A few tips firstly double check your soldering for each chips pin leg with magnifying glass / microscope. If its passing memtest but not in cores also check soldering on the inverter. If your soldering is good make sure the module has had a good clea...

Providing the Noctua fan is the 5 volt version, it will work fine at 3.3 volts.

Re: 128MB SDRAM Troubleshoot

If I solder wick the pins and then use hot air will the chips then be clean enough to lay flat on a new pcb ? Yes they should be, my suggestion is use a large nozzle and get even heat over the chip, remove each chip individually, the PCB being 4 layers does soak up a fair bit of heat. While heating...

Re: 128MB SDRAM Troubleshoot

The silkscreen came off a bit in the corner after messing too much with a bridge there. I measured that even though the bridge seems to be removed there is a short between the last 3 legs of the chip. Looking at the two images, I suspect this is the issue. In my opinion your best bet is use a hot a...

Re: 128MB SDRAM Troubleshoot

If you can include some images of the memory module you have made it will be easier to help with trouble shooting the problem, however if you have created a permanent bridge by removing the solder mask, it might not easily be fixable.

Re: Updater script config to not pull down removed cores?

Give this a try, adjust the setting DOWNLOAD_NEW_CORES="false"; the updater will not download any new cores, it will just update the cores which are on your SD card, then use the core_manager.sh to install or delete cores.
