Default Rubycon MCZ compatibles

I am looking for compatibles for the Rubycon MCZ series. I am looking for some Rubycom MCZ 6.3v 1800uf capacitors for a Del GX270 we have. The GX270 is a great unit, does what we need, but recently has started to fail. When rebooted it says it was closed down due to a thermal issue. Looking at the motherboard several of the capacitors have bulging tops so I'm guessing these are the issue. I'm in the UK & see Rubycon ceased the MCZ range a long while ago but I can't seem to find a current replacement for these units. Any help/advice you can give on suitable replacements I could source in the UK would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance.

use polymers, there are no compatables for mcz - it was the best.

Only bested by Nichicon HZ... but such small difference isn't really that important.

I agree with regards to using polymers on the GX270. I did one myself like that a long time ago, along with several other Pentium 4 motherboards. Still works fine.

These Fujitsu 2.5V, 820 uF polymers will work and fit fine:

Don't mind their lower capacitance and voltage ratings. The CPU VRM circuit won't have problems with them.

And for the high-side caps (the ones connected to the 4-pin 12V CPU power plug), if needed:
