  1. it has been 17 days and mouse is working perfectly fine. As told before i was not using this method for the first time and it really works thats why i shared. Dont forget to share urresults so people had a lil faith then
  2. I m not so sure if the thing i baked was GPU or something alive thats burning for nothing
  3. Its no magic. Its as simple as cleaning spark plug. You are looking at WD-40 as a lube i used it as a contact cleaner Spark plug will get dirty over time no matter how optimum your carb/electronic adjustments are. In the same way the copper in these button will get oxidize no matter what. I have worked on gaming mice from budget ones to enthusiasts one. Apart from broken wires i found this oxidation thing to be pretty common. Initially the copper is coated with some protective layer i guess thats why the first oxidation takes a lot of time after that mice require treatment every six month. But i dont think that a 10min treatment is hard or difficult or un doable for an enthusiast or DIY man. I have been using the very same mouse for 6 freaking years with the very same thing i did in the video i cant give a better proof than that. But i have no doubt that replacing the switch is a better and long lasting treatment. Especially if one has a good gaming mouse and doesnt like the surgeries.
  4. First of all i apologize for such a late update. Was very busy in JOB n bike repairs n family. Shifted my PC to a bigger room. So cleaned most of my stuff and on the way gave this mouse some treatment. Mouse clicks skipping or multiple clicks on a single click is a pretty common problem as the mouse gets old. I was facing this issue for pretty much a month now but didnt have time to treat the problem. What cause this issue? Mice buttons have a very thin copper shim in it, the actual thing that clicks. With passage of time it gets oxidize and this cause weak contact between the two copper parts (switch/button/click) which results in either multiple clicks or no click at all. Its a v v annoying thing but this happens to pretty much every expensive or inexpensive mouse over time. In this video i showed how simple it is to get rid of this issue 99.9% . You can give it a complete clean by opening up that button but i dont recommend it as its much risky as compare to this method.

    Do share the progress and ideas Good luck to u n me
  8. I have never completed a case MOD before for my very own PC. Being a budget gamer whenever i had a lil extra money i was putting it into performance upgrade. Now m pretty done with gaming so now it’s time to finally mod a case for myself. M not a professional Modder i mean i have limited experience and tools. But i love the process. Among all the cases i have ever seen or worked on i found the Dell XPS 710,730, 630 and 630i to be perfect for my taste appearance wise. These are not that expensive and are very very solid beasts. A lil hard to find and shipping costs a lot due to their weight. After years and years of searching in my local city i finally got it shipped from a different city.( Money was the main issue here :P) Present This video is just an overview of what we are starting with. Some minor scratches a few lil broken parts but no dents. Future Part 2 The tear down: Everything apart Part 3 The orientation: Making it right hand drive and non inverted. (I mean corrected the orientation, if i can of motherboard and stuff inside) Part 4 The electronics: Making the RGB work with my mobo or some other way. Maybe a custom fan controller too Part 5 The finalizing: Polishing and color theme. Now the part 2 is the real deal over here. Can’t move forward without it. The inverted MOBO and window on right side is a no go. You HELP required. Any idea how to install Alien FX lite on a non DELL/alien mobo. I have a gigabyte one. Its basically a software to control LEDs on the 630i. That i cant install it gives error that u need a del system Update 2/6/2018 Dell XPS 630i Case MOD P2 : Taking Everything apart Soooooooo many rivets & soooooooo many zip ties. But it was fun. The video is pretty detailed. So you might find it a bit boring but it will surely help in dismantling if u have one Dont forget to like and share your thoughts. Update 18 Feb 2018 Dell XPS 630i Case MOD P3-half Half of the work of part 3 is done. So sharing that on request Part 3 is all about correcting motherboard tray orientation. But its not as simple as it sounds. The next part of part 3 will be uploaded ASAP

    No the pins are on the pillars. Though when removing front panel dont pull it from metal part, Pull it from the plastic pillar part once u have removed the middle plastic part. The whole story. I hope moderators wont mind that m sharing it for 1000 time https://youtube.com/watch?v=HZCA49s4yhc

  14. Carbon Fiber 3M Mod

    Except the main ICs and components u see heatsinks on Mobo. There are many other small ICs and component that get fairly warm and covering those will be a very bad idea. Like the RAM power area is a bit hot, your Ethernet controllers, Audio IC, and there are many other ICs and stuff i dont even know the name of, that get hot and if u cover those area with foam these things will get hot to death. If u want to go with Carbon fiber. I will suggest you to make a cover/mobo shroud from thin acrylic/design it and get it CNCed and then use carbon fiber vinyl on that. This will you will cover the mobo but at least it wont be like putting a blanket over the components.
