It also had a habit of rebooting randomly before I replaced the highpoint controller with a PCI Promise UATA-100 card.
Now it only reboots when it's under heavy load, usually when I'm right in the middle of converting media files.
I've checked the voltages in MBM, and the vcore is showing a range from 1.47 to 1.53.
Would it be worth it to replace the caps, and vrm?

All has been fine for years on this box, but now it's spontaneously rebooting, and nothing I seem to do tells me what it might be. I've moved the drives from the 33MHz controller connectors to the 66MHz controller connectors, hoping it was a controller issue, but to no avail. (not sure why it was ever on the 33's, but this is my wife's machine that I haven't touched in years.)
Also, no matter what I select for the Boot Seq. options, I can't seem to boot from the CD-Rom drive (actually a Toshiba DVD-Rom/CD-RW drive). CDs are good, I can boot to them in other machines, but not with the BP6.
Any ideas on where to start troubleshooting this?
Kel wrote:What a difference replacing the EC10 cap makes.
The Photoshop fill test passes, but with a quirk.
Right where it usually locks up, it'll pause for about 10-15 seconds, and then continue filling.
The system hasn't rebooted as a result of my media converting tasks, but I'm curious if replacing the VRM would put a halt to the Photoshop pause?
The other capacitors on the board seem to be fine, and I'm not noticing a huge drop in voltage the way it used to do when under load.

Isn't there a setting that allows you to control the foreground/background of Applicaions on the server? Being able to give Applications Foreground processing. I think its in the same diagolue box that allows you to optimise the server as a file server. (i can't remember... )

that sounds like you have them in parallel.
which means you have lowered your 100uf down to 95uf making it worse.
if you had two 2200uf only, it would be a good 1100uf.
