Default Gateway Profile

I have many of these, Profiles 2,3's and 4.

The profile 4 just failed with badcaps, they just say TMS on them.
X style vent, K L on side?
There are a lot of different types and brands of caps in this computer and many are suspect, gold on blue always worries me.

I recapped the row of TMS on this Gateway but was dissapointed.
It won't post because of other failures.
So just arrived today is the replacement motherboard loaded with
Sam Young caps.
Who has the balls to put his name on the cap and who is this guy.

I posted somewhere that this is my favored machine and it's back.
I tried to get these pictures to show the new and improved motherboard next to badcap motherboard.
Here's the thing, I was careful to match the correct replacement parteven down to the rev number, but they are different, in a good way.
This new board has a big heat sink covering the mossy area,(greener part of board) so the fets and the caps will stay cool. One more added piece is the heat shield over the two caps that popped.
I'm sorry my pictures aren't great but I have to agree I'm also not happy working on my own stuff.
