Sodlering guide please.
I would like a guide on volt modding gfx cards!!!! Just to get that little bit extra out of them.
What vid card?
Well actually I would be more interested in seeing it done to cards like the 9700 to make them into XT's. I know it is possible and I think that would just fit into the extreme sort of style of Bit-Tech. Any card which has been replaced by a slightly higher clocked gfx card.
On the way
If you buy a on-off key toggle and a PS/2 or USB numpad you could build one.
Simply wire the key toggle into the 5V line of the numpad.
Then set your BIOS password to a number sequence and enable USB legacy keyboard support
A tut I wrote on using layers, masks, and layer mixing.
Simplest methods possible
request- Back lighting leters in plastic

PS2 powered mouse recharger
Here's one I really want:
power my mouse recharging station from the ps2 port that it's plugged into.
or take power from a USB port?
Can anyone help?
(I know I've seen something like this before, but the search isn't giving any results)
I've seen something like that. go to Afrotechmods.com I think thats the website, not postive.
There is one way described there (http://www.afrotechmods.com/cheap/arnoldpad/arnoldpad.htm) but not the way I want to do it...
Can anyone tell me where the ove-harge protection is? and what voltage is given by a PS2 port?
A ps/2 port gives you 5v, same as a usb line. Problem is though, it gives you very little amps, so allthough you've got the volts, you still wouldn't be able to power anything more than a mouse or a keyboard (as they don't require very much power). Theres quite a few threads arround here that deal with it, I'll try an locate some for ya
[EDIT] Found It!!!! http://forums.bit-tech.net/showthread.php?t=49115 That'll give ya the info ya need (it's down at the bottom)[/EDIT]
excellent, thank you
bit of a persific one:
a guide on how to mod a psone screen for use as a case lcd screen.
that would be super
damn, I know I've read an article on modding a PSOne screen into a computer but I can't remember where I saw it. And no amount of googling turns up anything. I think that you can buy an s-video->psone adapter. Then if you have an s-video out on your video card you're set. But again, I can't find the article.
yeh i googled it too
phire has pics on his site of him modding one but pics are useless unless you know whats being done
I think that this has been mentioned in the Forums elsewhere, but there is a reasonable soldering / desoldering guide available here:
Soldering Guide by Everyday Practical Electronics
Click on the 'Pictures' link for more info - I think it is actually more useful than some of the text. If you think it's good enough, it may save acrimonious some work. (although it does lack any practical advice on splicing wires and plastic shrink wrapping, which I feel may be of use to modders)
