PCB modding projects by DanGilmore

Recommended Posts

If you are into xoc and hardmods you might be interested in some of the projects in this post. I made a couple of KiCAD projects in the past and didn't like that they were only available to a couple of people or even got left behind altogether. That's why I created this post to make some of these projects available to the public, for personal use and to be modded for all kinds of hardware.
It'll take me a couple of weeks to get everything up here so stay tuned.

Here is a quick guide on how to order the pcbs:

  1. upload the .zip named "xxx - production files" to JLCPCB (or any other fab of your liking)
  2. change the manufacturing settings to what is specified in the .txt named "xxx - production settings"
  3. order your desired quantity and start modding


Fujitsu Adapter


This pcb is meant for Fujitsu cap replacement on Rampage Extremes and other hardware with that type of capacitor. It's been tested by a couple of people and don't worry the additional pcb is not a problem for FSB or memory oc. If you are looking for recommendations part numbers are included in the KiCAD project (and make sure that the caps are under 2mm tall for the nb cap).

If you have any suggestions or ideas feel free to write me or add the yourself in the KiCAD project.

This pcb is an addition for your EVC or hardmod to avoid soldering wires direcly to your precious hardware. I still have to test some more pogo pins but version P75-B1 should fit (just make sure that your pogo pins are under 1,10 mm in diameter). On the EVC side you can use straight or angled pin headers or sockets with a 2,54 mm pitch to connect jumper cables or wires. And for connecting the pogo pins to your hardware I'd suggest using a fair amount of hot glue to keep everything in place (put some IPA in the crack between hot glue and pcb and the whole thing will fall off).

-I'll add some pictures of the last revision in two to three weeks-
