Ampere Mainboard

Creator: !mURx & Matt
Date: 1999-11-07


For this gross mod a poor 486 mainboard (which was already broken) was brutally burned by connecting it to a 24V/19A transformer. One of the pins was connected to GND or Vcc+ on the power supply connector, the other one was used as a "probe" to electrify the different parts on the mainboard.
