Tip: use 105C electrolytic capacitors,
Tidbit: Panasonic makes a great 'tube' capacitor. Right! The center is hollow! It helps dissipate heat.
It is way too expensive for consumer applications.)
I have Sanyo and HM(M) Nichicon on a newer MOBO.
Actual MOBO has Rubyoon and HM(M) Nichicon.
Will replace my GA-7N400Pro2. on the actual MOBO PCI-Slots are dead.
All capacitors will be replaced on a halfdead Mobo.
Could be that my capacitors are at end of life and no plague at all!
Rubycon Capacitors not Rubiyoon
Great News. Found a mistake-and PSU may be shut down
Had been running my old GA-7N400 Pro2 for quite long time. its 18 months since all this here started.
1-The right browsers for old Winxp-PCs(even slowest are running on internet)
meanwhile found the right browsers for my SSE(not SSE)-Processor-PC.
Here is the second part of a very long discussion. yes everything in one thread(2 parts).
One needs a lot of breath and patience to understand.
start in page one of part 1.
2. Had often crashes with all browsers mentioned above in msfn.org. dependent where i was surfing.
Palemoon Newmoon 27SSE, KMeleon, Firefox 45 ESR
yesterday i tested memory 3x 1mb Ram. i exchange them. errors with all of them in slot 1.
No they are not defective. Memory slot 1 is dead or ill.
so i am now running with 2 x 1mb ram. explorer-crashes may happen but not browsers.
Next is examining the services. Yes in know the other workaouround if slow winxp etc.
3. I still have slow internet despite the memory-cure. only 30Mbps
Download. should be 1000. havent yet found out why. cannot install mobile router on winxp. or is one working?
we will see wnen i have new laptop i7.
see my new thread.
4. Big surprise after i cleaned pc and replacedhermal compound. PSU was shot down.
Capacitor can hold cmos-setup-content. only dont know for how long without electricity. during this PSU in standby capacitor for cmos-setup-backup had been formed(hope its the right term) reactivated.
Was a problem leading to non-total-shut down of PSU. will now test if this is not temporarily. already had a 3months only successstory on this behalf.

More about capacitor plague. not only PC-MOBOs affected.
Discussion about newer MOBOs and from where are the capacitors.
