Default My IBM PC300 GL Pentium III 533 Mhz has good capacitors

My IBM PC300GL PC, type: 6563 model: 64U given to me by a person who didn't want it anymore, because I wanted a back up PC, back in December, 2002 has good capacitors.

Off goes the top cover, and... the first thing I noticed was, the tops of the bigger capacitors have Ks on the tops of them. The motherboard is packed with Rubycon capacitors .

I looked on the sides of them to see if I had genuine Rubycon capacitors, because of getting wording about the Rulycon capacitors, and... the third letter looked like a b, not an l.

if they're RULYCON, they're junk rip-offs. RUBYCON will always be spelled RUBYCON! If they're RUBYCON, you're in good shape capacitor-wise!

I saw that the third letter apparently was a b, thus the capacitors are genuine
Rubycon capacitors . Cool.
