So, my capacitors are leaking again...

This time it's the 8RDA+ v1.1. I just removed my little MOSFET duct to replace the poopy 40mm fan, and noticed the bulges of death.

It's still under warranty, but I need to minimize downtime by buying something new. Good excuse to get that 8RDA6+ I've had my eyes on. Still looking at the 9NDA+ more and more, but that involves slightly more expense, and now is not a good time.

Speaking of slightly more expense... I could just buy some poopy $50 board (think AN35N) while the 8RDA+ is out on RMA... I intend on keeping my PATA drives a bit longer, so SATA really doesn't matter.

But I want the 8RDA6+. Anybody think of any reasons I would NOT want to get one?

Specifically, compatibility problems between the GigE PHY and my switch and/or modem, such as been reported with the 8KDA3*. This would be a major turnoff.

After all, I can always get the poopy $50 board, and go Socket939 sooner rather than later, which may add up to less expense on my part.

nm, the 8RDA3I is only $2 more than the AN35N.

Oh, my pretty 8RDA6+, if you only cost $40 less

If only you lived in the UK! I have a distinct feeling that from Monday 8RDA6+Pro and 9NDA3+ will be cheaper!
