Thanks a bunch! its alright if you dont test them tomorrow........ take your time :) lol i can wait dont worry. Also thanks on that fog tutorial! almost the only legal way to make smoke in Australia..... lol you cant go and buy a heap of chemicals and mix them together now can you?

btw your so lucky that you recieved the whole blu-ray sled when ordering the red diode :) lol maybe he didnt want to be bothered removing the reddie :D
Also nice that you chose a worthy host for it :)

But the point is, isn't it the nature of the LM3XX series that there *will* be a current spike on start-up without a cap on the input?

Hey,

I see More times Caps Killing Diodes then when you dont use them. I dont like using them in personal Builds. Period.

By the way, the build is still going smooth.

Edit: And I bumped it up. Look at my Sig.:na:

Huh. You have a point with caps killing builds... you know what? I might stop using caps =p Gonna make some test drivers and do some tests on them, but you may have just solved all my driver problems!

This thing is awesome :)

I wouldn't mind do a run of these. Especially since they don't require a boost drive!

EDIT: Holy shit, 4k posts.
