LOLOLOL I thought y'all were being harsh on the dude about his thermal paste, but I laughed out loud when I saw it :D I personally push a little out of the tube and use the tip of the paste to dab and spread it out as thinly and evenly as possible. You did teach me to not use a credit card lol
CPU's don't wear out. I have found that if I have a system that is slow AF and all the usual software and hard drive fixes don't work, I clean the chip and the heatsink, check the fan, and reapply thermal paste. I think the thermal paste not functioning correctly is way more common and the source of a slow system than a lot of articles will lead one to believe.
looks like you have no ventilation. clean out the heatsink and cpu, then apply a very thin EVEN coat of thermal paste on the cpu. replace the heatsink, careful to put it straight down on the cpu. I usually keep the heatsink as level as possible when i put it back on and tighten the screws little by little in a star pattern, like lugnuts on a car
Good Night.I have a question: I haven't a power supply of PC, however I'd like to use a power 5v dc, actually, a battery 5v cc. The issue is: What electric current is it takes to feed a step motor of the floppy drive? Thanks in advance.

Was veryinteresting, thanks for shareمتلب , انجام پروژه متلب
This is so coooool!!!I spent an entire afternoon trying to get this to work on the software side, because the drives didn't even move. At 1AM I discovered I had the ground and Step/Direction wires the wrong way around. Eventually I got it all working and added a second drive. It works great!Thanks for this great instructable.
Yes, was thinking similarly, in terms of a MIDI controller. :)
Has anyone interfaced these with a MIDI controller, corresponding to notes on the chromatic scale? n-note polyphony, where n is the number of drives used. :) Would be cool.
is it possible to receive data on matlab sent by arduino using Ethernet shield?
It's pretty late, but I had this error too. If you're on Windows (the only way I know how to fix this) open Start and type in "regedit" Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\JavaSoft and make a new folder called "Prefs" and you're done.
You need to just put a bit of the size of a grane of rice(maybe even smaller). And don't spread it out yourself. It will happen automaticly when you put the heatsink on.
How NOT to apply thermal compound
Hi, I'm sorry to say but you missed two very important points. 1) You do not show the results of the cleaning job. After cleaning the CPU and GPU, they should be shiny LIKE A MIRROR, as in, like an actual mirror, literally.2) You applied about 100 times the amount of thermal paste that you need. You want to cover the CPU and GPU with AS LITTLE THERMAL PASTE AS POSSIBLE. Again, literally, just enough to cover the surface of the chips with a very thin film and nothing more. In other words, there should be no more shiny mirror surface visible anywhere; if you can achieve that with a thinner layer of paste than you put on, you put on too much.
run it on linux!
