Default Re: Capacitor ESR

Hi everyone,

I am new and I can't start a new thread. I'm looking in changing some electrolytic capacitors on a Gigabyte P35-S3G, near ram. I've already replaced 2 of them, but two others gone bad and I'm thinking on replacing all of them with polymer capacitors. Then searching on the internet I came on ESR. I've read that they should have different capacity if you replace electrolytic ones with polymer.

My actual capacitors are 6.3V, 1000uF and I've found polymer capacitors with the same ratings, 6.3V, 1000uF and ESR 7 mOhms. Would that be good for my motherboard?
