I though there may be lots of people that didn't know about it ... like me! Plus I posted it in alt.comp.periphs.overclocking.amd and it was said that some are breaking in the last six months. Apparently if you don't run your pc for long hours it can take a while for the caps to break out, because the generated destructive gas has a chance to dissipate. So I'm hoping that anyone with a board problem will now know to check the caps. -- Ed Light Smiley :-/ MS Smiley :-\ Send spam to the FTC at firstname.lastname@example.org Thanks, robots.
