So I got a 7600gt and 3 caps blew. I want to know which ones I need to get to fix it.
Tried googling the numbers ontop of the blown ones?
I MIGHT have some spare ones... from a mainboard though... They are of Rubycon and Nichicon type which are notoriously reliable.
6.3V 1500uF would be the replacement cap ratings.
Make that 6 6.3V 1500uF Tall ones though.
Remember your polarities bro
Well if you have some pm me other wise link me and Chris, i have. It doesn't pull any info up. Just other users reporting their EVGA 7600GT with blown caps.
I don't really have the tools to remove the caps off this dead mainboard (mainboard might be dead or it might be the CPU who knows)... I could try with just a regular solder'n iron if you want?
Thats all you need to do anyway. just use a soldering iron, heat the ends up and 'gently' pull
So if you get the card fixed you can send me the 10 bucks back......j/k
id send you whatever the i had left from the 10 for the caps
You should be able to get those at radioshak they aren't like crazy caps
Bottom right of first picture is 470uF 16V also.
For caps you have to get the Farad value spot on (1500uF and 470uF) in your case, but Voltage values just need to be "at least". In other words 20V rated caps with the right F values would be fine here. Type of cap (electrolytic, "solid", etc.) doesn't matter, though electrolytics have polarities as Solaris says ...they splode the wrong way round, or over volted.
I went to radio shack, they didn't have any 1500's
Oh yeah, using the money for new caps! that's perfect
try ebay they always have cheap stuff like this on there, also I would definatelt get ones that are rated higher because obviously those arent cutting it
I dont mean to be rude guys, but when i look for caps, there are so many. Can someone link me to them?
same issue here!
I actually posted it on my blog >> windriver.blogspot.com see what happened to my video card caps.
Is this really possible to replace it and work again? guess it will not be easy as its a dual sided board if I am not mistaken.
heres a few
