Having problems with your Sony VAIO VGC-RC110G (VGCR110G) PC Desktop ?

I want to upgrade the motherboard in my Sony VAIO VGC-RC110G PC Desktop. Is this possible or does sony use a nonstandard configured motherboard?


Answers :

It is a mATX - NOT ATX.
\015\012I just put a i5 cpu in mine after a mobo upgrade to a Asus P7H55-M...no problems. The stock psu is ok for these low powered new stuff..the old dual core was a energy HOG...look up the wattage.... it ran just way too hot for that case.
\015\012I even modded the plastic housing from Sony for a Quiet cool CPU cooler (Mine is a HTPC setup).
\015\012Good luck.
Most desktop cases have standard motherboard mountings.
\015\012You can select a motherboard of your choice and you may need to reposition some of the mounting screws to match the new motherboard mounting holes.
\015\012The front panel LEDs and switches connecting leads should be labeled, if not you need to trace then back to the LEDs and switches to identify the leads so you can connect them to the correct front panel pins on the motherboard.
\015\012You may need to upgrade your power supply, make sure the total output wattage from the power supply is suitable for your motherboard upgrade and devices.
