I have a question.

My board EP-8RDA+ is produced during month 1 of 2003 Sticker on Mainboard

I know about the story about bad capacitors for a few years (4).

Everytime i see a mainboard (Epox or Other)with leaking capacitors its the
same manufacturer of the capacitors.

Why is Epox still using them !!!

And another question which boards have all these bad capacitors.
And what about warrenty-time about leaking capacitors will Epox repair them
also after 3 years.
I asked this because my dealer said Epox-NL had to inspect the bord first
before replacement.

Previous boards PII/PIII/K6-2/Socket7 and before NEVER had leaking
capacitors also not after 10 years of usage

Michel

BTW my board produced on month one of 2004 are other capacitors.

I am not exactly sure what you're question is (the questioin about
EPOX repairing your MB after 3 years was hypothetical, right?)

I had a board (almost) the same batch. My dealer said he already 38 of
the 50 sold come back with leaking caps.
It took EPOX NL almost 3 months to repair them. Fortunately I got a
replacement board from my dealer (maxpert.nl)
Unfortunately EPOX only repaired the leaking caps, so now after 2
months I have the same problem again with the remaining caps.

I will requist a new board this time, else this has been my last EPOX
board.

If you want to know which board are more or less OK you might want to
look at http://www.badcaps.com/

Good luck

FWIW, I had a similar experience. In my case their fix of the bad caps
was quick and professional, but another cap failed soon after it came
back.

I think it is ridiculous. If they know the whole batch of caps is bad,
why not replace all of them with ones that they know to be good?
They are not doing themselves or their customers a service.
