I’ve yet to see a KZG with 2010-2014 datecodes fail (they were still in production for a while after Chemi-con pulled them from their catalogue, just only sold to OEMs). However, premature 2007 failures are not unheard of and anything before that I would definitely avoid (2001-2006). Same goes for KZJ.
Good call!
I suppose KZG is not as terrible as it once was (and maybe they've indeed fixed the problem?)

But if you have a Pentium 3, Pentium 4, or Core 2 Duo/Quad -era motherboard with KZG, chances are you will see a good number of failures on those (especially the 6.3V/3300 uF, 6.3V/820uF, and 6.3V/1500 uF caps).

Oh, I have seen plenty bad KZG from the Core 2 Duo/Quad era. Don't believe me? have a look at any ASUS IPIBL-xx motherboard with KZG caps and you will see. Or a Dell desktop tower from the same era.

Samxon GF or KF series? If yes, I'm not surprised.

There's actually very few Samxon series that have proven to be reliable, and these are the GD (i.e. Samxon GooD ), GT (goot? ), and RS series. Every other series from them, probably best to run away.

IMO, they are too overpriced for what they are anyways, so I just stick with the Japanese caps.

It wouldn't surprise me if the worst are the socket 462-era (also socket 754-era and socket 939-era) 3300 uF KZGs!

They are different in size, so the bottoms are just different. Plus, it is RS Components, so it is highly unlikely that they are fake.

They are all fake or factory rejects at best.
I only tend buy Chinese caps from China.

BTW, if someone knows a seller that sells genuine ones, I would be interested to know.

If you really have no other option other than eBay, seller egekecu (PC MotherBoard Capacitors Store / PCMCS) is probably your best bet then. Some members here say even some of his caps may be fake, but personally I've never dealt with this seller so I can't confirm or deny those claims. But judging from the few people that did buy from him, looks like at least some (if not most or all) of his caps are genuine.
