After a year or so with on and off research I was finally able to bring my precious Quadra 950 back to life.

Thank you Geekdot

Well done!
They are noisy beasts, and, of late, prone to failure. After only 30 years too.

@BadGoldEagle also did good work with the PSU of his Q950.

slowly but surely…

Decided to “upgrade” the fan to a Noctua NF-F12 IndustrialPPC-2000. Original fan drew 0.52amps, replacement power supply fan draws 0.30 and the noctua says it draws 0.1amp.

She’s up and running lads!

Next up… clean up the peripheral board, wire up with wago connectors.

Fan a bit loud, going to see if I can wire up a fan controller.
