btw, mac g5's do that too (hence the poly kit). too hot to handle.
Uhh, don't talk shit about stuff you don't know?
The Precision 470 is not some kids system, it is a workstation system
It has excellent cooling, hell, if you want to populate all RAM slots it will even force you to buy an extra fan for that!
This system with failed Rubycon capacitors has some issue, either broken fans, broken PSU or non genuine Rubycon capacitors, it would never be able to cook genuine Rubycon capacitors if working properly

Just in; Silicon Chip September 2010: bad JFD units in an 18-month old HD set-top box. It was on top of a DVD player in an enclosed entertainment cabinet.

are XICON caps any good? blue with black lettering. thats what most of the ones at the local electronics store has. i recapped a cheapo powmax 450w with them (only 2 in that psu were bulged so i replaced them and the one other of the same specs) and it seems ok...

XICON are not low ESR.
If you put that PSU on a scope you'd be scared.

I was investigating a problem with my washing machine today.

The PCB has 4 Capxon on it, whoopee!

Seems to be happily running through its wash cycle at the moment (thank goodness). I may replace the Capxon later.

For a P3 it'll work.

No, they won't. - At least not for long.
Good chance they will fry out the VRM on the motherboard before they go out themselves.

Thumbs down Re: List of Bad Cap Manufacturers

Surprisingly from a high value Belinea flat screen (10 20 30):
Almost all caps on the controller board and the 1000 PSU cap.

- All the TEAPO (No surprise)
100 * 6
330

- All OST
470
330

- All Eltec (Eltoc ?)
1000

I have done a recap of my Marantz CD10, I found 4 Rubycon Black Gates in there which were leaking....
They were 15 years old
Are they crap or not?
Anyway I put Pan fc in there
What about Multicomp?
I read in a post here that they are not low ESR...
But are they crap or not?
I may want to put 2 100uF / 6.3V bipolar in a protection circuit of an amp
Usually there's no voltage on them only when the protection starts working

Just old and heat eventually got them.

Most likely Chinese junk.

Bipolar are used when the polarity changes in operation.
A low ESR bipolar would be rare if any even exist.
Both sides of the aluminum foil have an oxide layer [dielectric].
Using them in a circuit that doesn't reverse polarity will eventually erode [remove] one of the oxide layers effectively turning it into a polarized cap.

Ok
But there has to be a reason for choosing this type of bipolar cap
It's the protection of an Accuphase power amp
Knowing Accuphase....
For now I put in 2 Pan fc's
Not entirely good but it'll work until I find good bipolars
The old ones were Elna... 20years old or so and leaking
But it won't be Multicomp
I saw a few Nichicons at Mouser
I just hope they're the same quality like Pan fc

Without seeing a schematic I can't tell you why it's there.

In an old TV set (late 80s) was a bad DIACON bipolar electrolytic used for coupling of the horizontal yoke.
Ever heard about this brand of capacitor?

Couldn't find DIACON.
Possibly a defunct brand.
