Ok, for my first post here is a shot of 5 popped caps on my Nvidia Geforce 6200 graphics card, kept getting a driver error which I took at first to be a Vista/Nvidia compatability issue.

There is no manufacturer name on them, they are silver with a blue semi-circle and text on top, FZ72 1000 6.3V. The pressure relief is "K" shaped.

I take it these are 1000 microfarad..any ideas on the manufacturer?

Cheers

samxon gd from evga socket 775 dated mid 2007.

Re: The Hall of Shame - Badcaps Photo Montage
 
This is first bad news I've heard for Samxon. The use of GC on the VRM seems odd. Granted, the VRM-out is more critical, but shouldn't low ESR would be used everywhere on the VRM?

samxon gc
from an nvidia mobo rebadged evga.
less than a year old.
some [email protected] on vdimm leaking too.

I take it that's an Intel Socket 478 Processor not a 775 , with it's 20pin connector.
Replace all the capacitors immediately. : :rock:

I am surely those are custom made batch for customers(always request by mobo factories), like the case as Intel mobo for Nichicon and Rubycon 820uF 6.3V D8x25mm.

Actually 220uF 6.3v have a risk for GC grade by technical problem. I never order those unreasonable stock from factory.

lookie what i found in a 1HE (1¾ Inch ; 44,45 mm high .. guess that its called "RU" instead of HE in english (HE = Höhen-Einheit (= Height Unit))) Server PSU.
PSU: EMACS MPW-6150F ("Auto Switching")
low profile PSU.. running rather hot because the only fan is a hard working (and thus VERY noisy) 40mm one...

busted hard..
PCE-TUR 10V 3300µF
the yellow stuff is just glue... found it everywhere in that psu... looked more like they glued the components in instead of soldering when i first looked at the PSU :d
http://bambooz.pytalhost.net/badcaps...TUR_busted.jpg

the tops of those caps are still flat. but all of them had the rubber bungs more or less pushed out..

Weird thing is:

the only secondary side cap that survived was a freakin Fuhjyyu (on the 12V rail) :noob:

what the f....?! o.O

Some bloated G-Luxons in an el-cheapo Austin-branded PSU:

(the jamicon is not original, I had already begun re-capping the psu)

Vented Jun Fu caps in an Allied-branded PSU:
http://www.mustangmods.com/ims/u/1363/13624/266465.jpg
For anyone noticing that there is not a single spec of dust in the psu, its because the caps failed from sitting for 4 years! The psu has exactly 0 hours of use, all it ever did was sit in my room. I was not at all pleased with this, as my psu (the Austin above) had just died and this Allied is all I had to replace it with. :(

Consider yourself lucky; my rev 1.04 came with the nichicons which I replaced a few weeks ago - they weren't too bad yet. Interestingly, the manual image for my 1.04 clearly shows K vents......

Fortunately my board now matches the manual with it's new MBZ's. :p:

YC capacitors are common in Aspire power supplies.
Yes, they might be as bad as Fuhjyyu, just not so commonly used.

Hi all, my graphics card went out on one of my pc's recently. (I had a back up luckily)
Here is a shot of the card below:
http://i164.photobucket.com/albums/u...DSCN0406-1.jpg

I am wondering if I should bother to try and replace them. I guess first step is to find the right replacement. Also, I am wondering whether to replace just the blow caps, or some others too.
