Re: Ultra low ESR. Much confusion!

Rubycon ZLH is fine for this board.

I have the P5GC-MX. Recapped almost everything on that board with ZLH, minus the CPU VRM (used polymers there). See this thread if you're interested:...

Re: GA-945GCM-S2L - low voltage on VTT_GMCH

From what I can tell from this, there is only a 100-Ohm resistor (R1712) between the Gate of Q287 and the output of U85b. Therefore, start by checking R1712. It should be 100 Ohms. If not, that's...

Option #3 made me LOL :D .... but seriously, who'd do that?

I'm more of a option #1 guy - sometimes I'll skip it, even if I already have the shield for the board. It depends on who the PC is for...

Re: Cyberpower CP900EPFCLCD - F03 Error

Well, if you can find a schematic for the UPS, that would be great. But if not, the VIPer22a datasheet does contain a lot of useful information.

Re: Generic Magsafe charger ghost touches

If there is a little bit of space on the output...

Re: Help figure out burnt up resister values after fireworks(:

Just make sure to use a series incandescent bulb in series with the PSU after you have replaced all of the parts and are ready to test it. Like this:...

Thanks for the reply / confirmation. :)

Yeah, I figured they were a good deal, even just for the DVD drives and PSU in them (if nothing else). I just didn't want to be hoarding in on stuff that...

Re: Post your worthless and/or pointless repairs

Well, I meant as a brand name. ;)

Otherwise, you can see how one of these has popped from its bottom. I'm sure it must have made at least a "muffled" pop inside the case. Definitely NOT boring! :D...

That's because they are Too Boring. :goofy:

Re: Roister Pb-150 Subwoofer repaired, how to prevent from failing again?

That's a pretty cool story! :)

Re: The Hall of Shame - Badcaps Photo Montage

Cool, thanks for sharing.
So it was the electrolyte, as I suspected.
Perhaps Nichicon PL series are to be avoided/removed as well - at least at this age now. The PR series sure do like to leak from...

Re: Looking for best replacements for Capxons, but can't find data sheets

Those CapXon GL might be a custom order, which is why you may not find them in the datasheets.

In cases like that, look up a cap of the same voltage with the same case size and use the ripple and...

LOL.
Maybe do a "side fan" cooling mod (https://www.badcaps.net/forum/attachment.php?attachmentid=182617&d=1536912433) ;) - that way you won't be blocking (and even providing cooling to) cards in...

Re: Need replacements for Samxon HP

You can go to the moon (and back) with the ripple current - it just states how much the cap can tolerate @ maximum rated voltage and temperature before it starts overheating internally. If the cap...

Re: Need replacements for Samxon HP

For polymer caps - sure, I think Wurth are probably fine. Heck, even CapXon polymers don't seem to be troublesome in any way.

But when it comes to wet electrolytics, I still...

Re: Replacing Fake Sanyo's in a SMPS

Yeah, that should be fine.

I'm pretty sure the fake Sanyo's are nowhere near as good as the KZE's, so those KZE's should be OK.
