    I just got out my old Biostar Board, to picture it, because i wanted to build a cruncher out of it for ages:

    at first everything looked promising.
    i documented the used Ram:

    and pictured my processor-dummy, a naked athlon x2 4400+, from which i broke of an edge, years ago:

    then i shrugged, as i saw THIS:

    it looks like a leaking cap!!!
    this is one of the same caps, it looks quite different:

    RMA time? or isnt RMA possible with this kind of damage?
    i need your suggestions people, if everything fails i have to transplant my first cap,i believe:ohwell:
    the board ran till the end, but it bluescreened once a day, with the phenom 955.

    thanks for any help!

    Its not real hard to transplant caps... although I do have lots of spare rubycons from and old HP Pavillion board that died.. (CPU died)...but I would think sending them your way would cost more than if you got them from someone in Europe.
     
    Velvet Wafer says thanks.

    thanks for your offering, but i have a dead socket A board, and a few dead VGA´s for spare caps!:)
    i just need a small guide, how to do that!
    (it is un RMA-able, am i right?)
