Default Re: The Hall of Shame - Badcaps Photo Montage

This RIFA caps are well known for failure over time.
This one has blown with not much noise, but some amount of smoke and a terrible smell.
It came from the PSU board of a Tektronix 2445 oscilloscope.

We used to blow them up for fun at college, and they smelt like stinky fish ��

From a classic gaming group on facebook. Asus TUV4X. Sanyo caps though. I'm guessing bad PSU
