No, I didn't even bother. Although, from reading various forums around the internet, it sounds like Supermicro has been pretty helpful, and I saw lots of people claiming to get replacement boards even out of warranty. I think this may already be my longest running piece of hardware as it is (5 years next month). If this 5 minute fix keeps it running for another year or two, that's good enough for me.Did you contact Supermicro to see if they will repair it for you?
Not sure on warranty (if any) after they repair it.
Have you found anything in these last few months that would give more info about the problem, or more specifically, any DIY fixes?Wouldn't it be great to create a canonical source of information for people who wish to DIY this fix on this very popular board? If I manage to get enough practice I would be very happy to have a crack at this.
Ah thanks for the hintRhoTrp, try actually soldering a 220 ohm resistor in between pin 1 and 8. That worked for me.
i was indeed worried about the fact that everyone talked about 3.3v and my Pin 9 indeed only mentioned 3v.Well you can put two 110 ohm resistors in series to get the 220 ohms. But the reason for pin 8 is that the pin you hooked it up to is the 3v line while the 3.3v line which most guides reference for other boards is on pin 8.
