The DDR booster I won in the competition dosent work with my PSU.. fortron530.
The PC wont turn on...
So I thought id have a look at the booster and try and work out how it works, and see if I can mod it to work with my system...
What do I know so far..
The booster can be split into two sections.
The voltage regulation.
The voltage readout.
The big intersil 7107 chip works out the voltage readout.
This chip uses +5v, -5v + ground
The 4 fairchild mosfets do the regulation.
These draw there power from +5v although it seems that the +12v is used to set the voltage through a resistor/potentiomiter setup.
Im not quite sure how this works yet.
Big question is, exactly why does my system not boot with the booster installed?
It will boost with the booster out of the dimm socket, so its something to do with the motherboard, or a short through it...
What im thinking at the moment is to try and get the system to power on... then engage the booster. Im just not sure how yet.
