Default Re: Dell Optiplex GX620 with Oozing Rubycon caps

Yep, nothing new here. Bad Chemicon KZJ and RUbycon MCZ in a Dell mini-bake oven PC. Those Pentium D chips put out a lot of heat, and in a small case, just about any regular electrolytic cap will cool. So if you do recap it, you might want to use polymers (i.e. polies). And maybe see if you can add an extra fan in the system or otherwise optimize the cooling. Generally, those Dell cases have decent cooling, but it's just that the P4/PD CPUs they use produce too much heat for that case.
