Default Re: Shuttle SD36G5M - Mobo died, recapped, still issues

Ok here are 3 pictures progressively more zoomed in to give you an idea where this is on the board. In the first, I circled the area. The second picture has the arrow to the cap that was originally bulged and the chip that is very hot. Third is circling something coming from under the chip that just doesn't look right. It looks almost metallic with a flashlight like solder, but not sure how that would be.

BTW, the cap next to the chip there is intentionally angled, since the Nichicon caps were slightly wider than the originals, so it was hard to fit everything right down on the board with so little room to spare.

I may replace the caps right around there again because of the heat they experienced. I don't know if they got damaged. I have the burn on my finger to prove how hot that damn thing got in less than a minute of being turned on.
