Didn't want to say that the mobo is probably on its last legs, and he should really be backing everything up...
Yep, it looks like in the pictures - the caps are bulging and there's brown stuff on top, although it's hard to tell if it came from inside or if it's burnt glue. How likely is it that the mobo will fail on me, anything I can do about it? The capacitors on it seem fine.
Thanks for the quick reply and reference!
