fyi, i didn't do a whole lot of testing when using the 4.5v setting with
the RS power supply... all i know is that uCsimm didn't work at 4.5v, but
started working with the 6v setting... (and has been working ever

i also took a tip from other posters by being aware of any component being
warm to the touch, but found all components at room temp when using the 6v
setting... (polarity on the RS power supply's tip is most important,
and should be negative center... on the RS tip, pull out the plug,
then align the word 'TIP' with '-' and reinsert before use!)...
