Default Jetway K8M8MS

I rescued a motherboard from the trash (no ram, CPU...)

Two caps were obviously bad ( 1500 f 6.3V)

I managed to remove the nasty ones, and new ones were welded back (taller but worked)

the new ones are 1650 f 16 V, only had those available.

Working great now.

That board has more crap caps.
Those silver caps look like Sacon.
I also see a f-ju near the ATX connector.

Those silver caps are junk. The replacements you used aren't suitable for motherboards, and they're poor quality as well (just as bad as the originals).

Nice job saving it! But even if they weren't Fuhjyyu they wouldn't be suitable, that's a General Purpose cap (TN series). And yeah those silver caps are Sacon...

Rule of thumb for Jetway motherboards - recap every single frickin' cap on there! Although Jetway motherboards are quite alright IMO, I really don't understand why they always use those crappy GSC/Sacon/Evercon/Gloria caps (all 4 are actually made by the same company). These caps are beyond junk!

Ah, good old Fuhjyyu's out of an Antec PSU, aren't they?
Could tell even without seeing your pictures. Fuhjyyu is the only brand I have seen to offer capacitors rated for 1650 uF.

Yeah, like the others said, you'll probably want to get those replaced as well. Not only are they not suitable but they aren't very good quality either. Sooner or later (likely sooner), you'll be back at recapping this motherboard. If I were you, I wouldn't delay it. I have 2 pieces of computer equipment here killed by crappy caps. Not fun to fix.

It was just a quick fix, mainly to troubleshoot the board.

the board was rescued from the trash as explained earlier,and i didn't want to spend money without being a 100% sure of the diag.

I hear ya. I too have a bag of old but still okay capacitors that I use to test junk hardware before I recap it with good stuff.
