some kinds can whine harmlessly, others its a sign of 'about to explode' - i just cant remember the types right now.
Mine was clearly the sign of about to explode :p. Oh well that zotac card was awesome until it died :laugh:

Use a decent psu to start with and you are never affected by the point loss... :p


I have had a P3 mobo with bulging caps.. I found identical caps at Radioshack and managed to replace them.. I think that mobo is actually still working today. I gave it away to someone. Think I had a GPU with the same problem..... but it died :(

Atleast a lot of trouble caps can be replaced by someone that knows how to use a soldering iron. WRU new bulging cap fiasco, I need some free computer parts :roll:
Dippyskoodlez,

I know this is an old thread but hoping you will see it. And I am thrad crapping but not too bad. You seem to know caps and my guys in TechIMO do not.

I broke a leg on one of the 330mfd caps on my ATI 4890. ( only ATI I have, I am a big nVidia fan, mainly GTX 295 duo's ) The ATI was headed for the second slot of a Gigabyte GA-EP45-P3.

Can't find a 330mfd in this little town, The Shack tries but,,,I did find a 220mfd 83A, 16W VDC maximum (the 330 was a 13 Volt)

My concern is that this cap ( I don't have the schematic and my O'scope is loaned out ) sits right at the 8pin+6pin power input. My FEAR is that it is part of the RC net regulating input, even though it should be 12VDC already ( 1K watt Rosewill ) I paused while you mentally gave me grief over the Rosewill, it's the only one I have.

Ready to heat up the solder sucker then put this new cap in, can't find input anywhere. The irony is that the card is registered for a triple lefetime warranty on the XFX site.

Any input would be appreciated. This looks like a good forum. I haven't looked to see if their are many folders in here but all I do is fold F@H.

Thanks,

Damn that's a clean job there from the looks Dj. :rockout:

Hey I noticed one thing - You could break out the plastic shell surrounding the 2-pin fan connector on the GPU PCB and plug the black & red of that 3-pin into the connector.

Kinda like what I did with my other GPU, my old Sapphire 4770.







The fan header on the Sapphire PCB only has two pins. I had to be very careful and take my time to break the plastic covering surrounding the two pins.

You could still control fan speed and monitor speed even though its just two pin.

I still have my XFX 4770 with another exact cooler, OC's like mad.

I never really had blown caps really. Only time that i've replaced a cap was on X-Fi Xtreme Music and even there it wasn't dead, i just deformed it's "legs". These days, i buy products with solid caps only so no problems there either.

So how's this for a story?

My PSU is a Kingwin, and I know now those are rolls of the dice. It's lasted 4 years, though, and only needs to last another month or so before I get my new computer. So I was looking at these pics, watching the videos, and thinking, 'Wouldn't it suck if my PSU gave it up now?'

While I'm thinking that I hear a popping sound from near my computer, the circuit breaker flips and my entire bedroom goes dark. Damn.

It turns out that it was an old UPS I wasn't even using and thought was unplugged, started arcing for reasons I still don't know. The only thing plugged into it was a clock(which still works). What a scary coincidence. I'm going to bed now. LOL

Here are some exploded caps in computer related equipment. Blowing force is amazing and it makes PCB really messy.

Benchmark Scores GTX 1080 please?
I never have seen solid state caps leak - must be a really cheap mobo
Actually, that's a tricky one. If the lid of the capacitor is not scored, it's a solid capacitor. If the lid is scored like an electrolytic capacitor, even if it has a shell that looks like a solid cap, it is still an electrolytic cap. It isn't possible for a solid capacitor to leak. :)
