Default Cap Replacement MSI K8N Diamond Plus and ASUS A8N SLI Premium

Hi,

for the mentioned motherboards I need to replace the following caps:

1000 uF, 6.3V: KZG (I guess its from United Chem; should be those: https://www.techno-star.biz/capacitors/MBZ.pdf)
470 uF , 16V: Rubycon MBZ
1000 uF, 16V: Rubycon MBZ
100 uF , 16V: G-Luxon
820 uF , 6.3V:
1500 uF, 6.3V:

The obvious problem is, that I can not replace them 1:1 due to discontinuation e.g. Rubycon MBZ.
Do you know suitable replacements by heart?

BR

PS: I will give more details on the last two including some pictures, once I come home in the evening.
PPS: I would like to buy the replacements off of Mouser.

do they at all? Nvidia chipsets have a tendency to die

what are the dimensions of the caps as well as where on the board are they located? some places u can get away with just 10k hour electrolytic caps. dont spend too much money on polymers for this type of boards as the chipset tends to die like uranium-235 said. the chipset coolers are also crap and the fan tends to die also killing the chipset even faster!

Thanks for the quick replies!

The "MSI K8N Diamond" is new old stock, however after opening the box the KZG's were all bad.
So the chipset should be no problem here! ;-)
The "ASUS A8N SLI" is one of my own boards, so I am pretty certain the chipset did not die of heat.

The Rubycon MBZ are located at the buck converters at the MSI motherboard. They are however looking good by visual inspection.

I am eager to try.

stand back when you first test it.

i had a board unused for years, powered it and a rubycon MCZ exploded.
i think it became de-polarised in the bag!

Editing is somehow not possible, here are the dimensions for the caps of the MSI board:

@stj
I will be careful, thanks!

Here are some pictures (Red: Rubycon, Green: G-Luxon, rest are KZG)

i believe these caps are scattered around the board around the pci slots, usb headers and ports and ram slots. these are general filtering caps for the minor rails and u can use electrolytic caps to replace them. replace them with panasonic fr 1000F 6.3v 8x11.5mm caps.

i believe two of these caps are found near the chipset on the a8n sli premium. those two can be replaced with panasonic fr 1500F 6.3v 8x20mm caps.

however, there are also some found beside the cpu. those can be replaced with polymers like chemicon psc series 1500F 2.5v 8x11.5mm caps.

the rubycons dont need replacing. they are fine unless they explode after testing then u'll need to replace them.
