Default Re: DFI-ITOX G4S600-B with Chemicon KZGs - compatible caps?

Along with low ESR you want a capacitor with a high Endurance rating. The Panasonic FR series is now rated 5,000 hours at 105 C. Most are listed as 2,000 hours at 105 C.

Choose a cap that has a 105 C 'Lifetime @ Temp' or 'Load Life' rating of 5,000 hours or higher if you're looking for long service life.

BTW - I worked at the manufacturer of your motherboard (DFI-ITOX) for 7 years. We and many other MB manufacturers had a slew of MB returns due to bad caps. Flatscreen TV manufacturers were also affected.
