Not really...but if yure at 75C oc then yes.
i'd have to say anything can happen from psu to bad mobo
one last question if a cap pops on your mobo can it take the rest of the rig with it? or will my cpu gpu etc be ok?
huge electrical spikes, fire, and liquid based burning chemicals spewing around the place... its not guaranteed to kill everything else, but its certainly possible.
hmmm well as you put it that way i feel rather better
look at mine. i didn't do anything but try to boot and BOOM
please dnt say things like that, ill be too scared to turn the thing on
haha you better be scared. i never figured out why it capped off like that. the lights are still on 0_0
allow that fear to direct you to a corsair PSU
every time i do a pencilmod, i wait for the feared "BRRRZZZZTTTT"... including Blackscreen...(it happened to my 4850) luckily im stronghearted, otherwise i may have died^^
haha i think i will if any of y rig dies i crnt afford to replace any of it haha
ok so wats the price on corsair psu's? dnt want nothing modular n fancy just something to ease my worries
corsair 450VX would match/better the amperage of your generic PSU. go have a look at newegg or whatever your E-store may be.
ill go fetch then
lol great thread
I have four 7600GTs sitting around with those caps die.
thebeephaha - send your greetings to the maker then I willing to bet that if mosfets aren't fried already, these cards will work just grat after recap.

I fixed one but I've not bothered to find more caps to fix it with.
EVGA brand Nvidia FX5200 AGP card. Fry's used to frequently offer them for $0-10 after rebate, and I initially thought it was a lot better than my PNY FX5200 card, whose heatsink was relatively puny and its Sanyo capacitors half as large as the EVGA's. I also thought that the EVGA's caps were polymers because of the packaging, but that was obviously wrong. Newer versions of this card use Sam Young caps that don't blow up as much but are as small as the PNY's, whose Sanyo caps are still good.
on my Socket 754 foxconn with sempron 2800
What about the graphics card with the screaming noise when you overclock them?. My 9800GT had it before it died and my 9600GSO has it also. I know lots of users with GTX2xx that have the screaming noise also.. It's common, why is this and should we be worried?
video cards and PSU's are different.
PSU's its capacitors - usually before they start to bulge, leak, and kill everything.
On a video card its usually just an annoying sound and not a sound of impending doom.
oh ok what causes the screaming?
cheap components being pushed to their limits. There are different kinds of capacitors, resistors, doodads and thingimies that i cannot recall since its freezing cold and 2am.
Someone who remembers will post it soon enough
Ah my 9800GT died due to I think a caps. I was doing furmark than few of them just exploded than shot into my PSU than forked my PSU
some kinds can whine harmlessly, others its a sign of 'about to explode' - i just cant remember the types right now.
