Default Original Xbox cap replacement

I'm looking at recapping both the board and PSU on an original Xbox for an in-law. It is a revision 1.6 and has some pre-2005 Nichicon HM caps that have failed. I'm looking for equivalent or better replacement to install.

Mainboard caps consist of Nichicon VR, Nichicon UC, Nichicon HM, Nippon SME, and Rubycon ZL

PSU consists of: Taicon PW, Ltec LZG, Taicon ST, Ltec TK, Ltec ST and the large Nichicon LS 250V cap (which will be left as is).

Is this sufficient information? Or do I need more detail? TIA

Default Re: Original Xbox cap replacement

make yourself a cap list.
you need the location, make, series, uf, volts, and diameter

for example:
c25 nichicon HM 1500uf 6.3v 10mm

then you lookup each cap in the makers datasheet and add the ripple current and ESR.

once you have all that, you can select equivalent or superior caps.
