Default Re: The Hall of Shame - Nichicon HZ series with H05xx date codes

Yeah, XFX really liked to use those crappy GSC/Evercon/Sacon caps on many (but not all) of their 6000, 7000, and 8000 series of cards. In the case of the bad Nichicon HZ I showed, though - that was a "recycled" cap I scavenged from a dead Xbox 360 motherboard. The whole point was to note that 2005-made Nichicon HZ are fairly unstable and like to go bad, but 2006 and newer aren't (at least not yet. )
