    Default MOD.1 HEATSINK REMOVAL...

    hi guys, i heard that removing the Genny/MD MOD.1 HDG's heatsink is somehow considered beneficial,
    though i have yet to hear an explanation of exactly why. can anyone enlighten me on this?
    my HDG Genny still has it's heatsink, and i'd like to know if i should be removing it,
    and of course, precisely what benefit i might hypothetically enjoy as a result of it's absence...

    You'll enjoy a lot lower life of the power regulators and that is all there is to it. Possible abrupt poweroffs are also possible.

    Heatsink removal, despite popular belief, does not reduce the risk of contracting STD's.

    I heard jumping off a cliff is beneficial too. One time my nes 2 shut down because I had no heatsink and was running a nes powerpak.

    The only benefit I can see of removing the heat sink would be keeping you alive while your Genesis is running. All that Blast Processing has to go somewhere ya know.

    No, it's unbiased analysis. The only fanboyism is people who claim that Hyperstone Heist and Bloodlines are actually as good as their SNES counterparts.

    Just like removing the radiator from your car will somehow make it go faster? Whoever told you that has the same IQ as a wet cheese cracker... or maybe he/she was just yanking your crack.

    You CAN remove the heatsink, but only if you replace the two old 7805s with something like this:

    He was busy removing heatsinks I guess.

    Yeah obviously someone directly told him this and the person is a flaming moron. There's no possibility whatsoever that he misinterpreted a post or two. Like the time some eccentric british guy misinterpreted the engrish posts of someone from germany as meaning that there's certain rgb nes ppus that contain the pallette of the composite ppu. People obviously never misinterpret posts.

    Wow, what a good mood you're in

    The guy(?) wrote: "i heard that". I can't see why I shouldn't assume that someone told him in the good old verbally fashioned way. No need to spew feces at me like that.

    So if i remove the capacitors on my HD1 genesis, will it go faster? Less slowdown too, now that the voltage is not hindered?

    It will run cooler. Take it off. Make sure you close up any vent holes on the console too. That way it will contain the cool air better.

    In fairness I remove the heatsink from rgb nes ppus to make them fit in consoles, although those aren't for the voltage regulator and those ppus run fine without the heatsink.

    just take it all out - capacitors, resistors, heatsinks, diodes - all of it. You'll get the best experience without any silly current and voltage hinderances.
