  1. What does Megaraid Storage Manger report on 'Full capacity' for your batteries ? Yes, you also need a soic adapter, they come cheap. I agree, it doesn't cost much time and it's actually quite fun when you succeed.
  2. Does your Lsi card report both your batteries as defective now ? I just use Stickvise for pcb clamping, regular solder and you can do it with any 30-40W soldering iron. You also need a programmer that supports a 24lc01b, you can buy them on ebay cheap - link , I also used the same chip on all my testing.
  3. Apparently the bq2060A internal charge controller does not count backwards, several users has tried just changing battery but it was unsuccessful - relearn simply fails. I don't know what lsi module you have but it will be interesting if you post your findings, I have only edited code for ibbu07 so other modules would be interesting and might behave otherwise.
  4. You do need to edit the hex code as the eprom keeps count of all battery data also how much capacity is left. When you replace the battery the chip still thinks the battery is exhausted and thats why code has to be updated. It's only when you refresh the hex code you can start using a new fresh battery and actually make use of it's full capacity.
  5. I do, it's a Dell Precision T3600 so it has 3 80mm fans in front and 1 120mm for the cpu cooler but I run fans on low setting or else it sounds like a airplane during takeoff. Still with fan settings on low I get 34C-38C on raid card.
  6. I have been testing some of the 33 Htc batteries I got hold of. Remove the two plastic pins holding the old battery secure. Htc cell fits without problem. 1 millimeter to high but thats ok. Fitted new 3m double sided thin tape to secure cell. First start, looks ok - lets calibrate battery. 2xcalibration done - looks perfect. I guess full capacity will continue to rise but not that it matters as fw is holding cell @ 940-970mAh so it does not matter. Splendid way to save a 690us$ - I'm happy. Maybe next I should play with some raid keys, might be interesting to see what features they hold.
  7. After turning on computer without fan connected and using if for 30 minutes I measured 58C. Turning fan on it reached 38C within 1 minute. 5 minutes after connecting fan it reached 34C With a small 45x45 fan blowing over the bigger heatsink I got much lower temperature then I hoped for - this is an awesome result.
  8. With new bigger heatsink without fan temperature will eventually reach about same temp as with standard heatsink, it just takes longer time. Still have not tried with fan fitted, when I do I will report back. The new heatsink has the same hight and exact same fin style as std heatsink, if I were to do this again I would look for a taller and at least 2x wider heatsink.
  9. I have also had a look at the heatsink on the 5015 I use, it's way to ineffective for use in a regular desktop with quiet fans and idle at 58-62C. Took a almost 3x bigger heatsink and modified it to fit. Old Ati card, just need the heatsink These needs to be removed to have a smooth surface. Made room for the beeper in the heatsink,nicely done With bigger heatsink and fan fitted I guess I will see better temperatures. Smaller standard heatsink comparison.
  10. Bumping this - anyone have a degraded/swollen battery pack please contact me.
  11. Not sure what you mean, as of right now I'm using the 07 on a M5015 and the 08 should also be compatible with this raid card whether card is using Ibm fw or Avago fw. The charging circuit is programmed to give a max of 512mA by default in fast charging mode, the datasheet for the Samsung battery states that fast charging must not be above 1700mA and standard charge of 1000mA so I am well below that - it is safe. I did not want to increase charging current as I did not know if hex editing would work at all so no, it would not matter - only downfall is that charging will take longer.
  12. Hi I have been working on modifying the hex code for the ibbu07 raid battery to be able to replace defective battery with new instead of buying a new Lsi pack at the price of 230$ here in Norway. Here I have replaced U4 with new hexcode, U4 is a regular 24lc01B. New Samsung ICP103450S battery fitted removed from a new Dell Perc6 battery module. Here I have replaced hex code and the battery with 2000mAh , as you can see design capacity is 1800mAh which is 10% derated.Orginal battery I'm sure you now is 1215mAh if your module is fitted with Sony US503759 a8h but full capacity is 1350mAh also 10% derated. I also changed date of manufacture just for fun, clock 22.40.53 is not stored in eeprom but copied from the computer when smbus was accessed. Manufacturer and serialnumber is as orginal, completed discharge cycles I resetted to have a fresh start. This if the modified code I used for the 1800mAh setup above except for 0x3F that I changed to 64 and seals the eeprom. At first I did keep 0x3F at 24 but doing that Lsi has a built in code in msm or fw that replaces alot of alterations as you can see.It only happens when battery is fully charged at 100% and 4100mV. Here Megaraid storage manager or raid card fw replaced some of my alternations. For those of you that is using a Lsi ibbu07 I hope you can check something for me. As you can see from picture above I have finished a battery relearn and battery is charging but stops at 49% and battery status is 'Optimal' Not sure if it is a problem with my hex code or normal feature of this software but can you check your software and report back at what capacity your battery charging stops ? pictures showing both properties and advanced properties just as picture above is more then welcome -serial number and manufacturer I don't need to see so feel free to paint over. Data I need is voltage, design and full capacity, remaining capacity and charge %. After fitting this battery I now regret using this big capacity - charging takes many many hours but I'm sure data retention time is awesome. Also yesterday I made a new post in the want to buy thread, I'm looking for a Lsi ibbu08 pack with swollen/defective battery to see ibbu08 code and see what charge controller it uses. If you have one let me know - link Edit - I had some problems using code function in this post so I removed it.
  13. Looking to buy degraded/swollen Lsi ibbu08 battery pack. Thanks
  14. Thanks for you comments continuum - I decided to go for 5 deskstar nas 4TB 0S03665 instead as they has proven to be reliable, was unsure about the 5TB version as I didn't want another seagate 3TB disaster. Thanks
  15. Anyone got an opinion on why not to buy hgst 5TB 0S03836 H3IKNAS500012872SE ? I can't find any reviews on the net on these drives and thought perhaps people were staying away from buying them. Any comment welcome.
