Default Re: Intel D865GLC, Nichicon HN(M) 820uF 6.3V

Some HN and HM series caps produced between 2002 and 2004 were overfilled causing this problem.
EVERYONE (mobo manufacturers) got caught on this one because Nichicon is normally a quality brand.
It's cause of the big Dell GX/SX 260/270/280 problem.
Even affected some MAC G5's causing a recall.
Lots of Gigabyte and Asus boards. (Everyone.)

Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind.
