    not sure. They are the dark blue with the grey stripe ones. I didn't look well enough to tell the brand on them. I was to worried about them being bulged. LOL But they probably are nichicons though. I may recap the board just because though.

    You could even poly-mod it, since the caps are sufficiently spaced apart, and you don't need too much bulk capacity (as there's enough on the VRM-in). Also, there's an unused, screened solder pad for a cap right above the topmost choke - use that one too, if you plan on playing with the soldering iron. I'd say 4V x 820uF or maybe even 2.5V x 1000+uF if you're feeling brave :)

    If not poly, I'd go with Panasonic FRs - the least bang (don't want "bang" with caps) for buck! :p

    those DO look bulged - are you positive they aren't?

    Positive they aren't. I re-looked at the board last night to be sure. I got scared when I looked closley at the pics.
