Solved Blown cap? Tags: Motherboards Overclocking Last response: August 30, 2010 11:27 AM in Overclocking Share jrhii August 29, 2010 3:46:27 AM Does this cap look blown, or am I just overly hopeful I have found the problem. There does seem to be a noticable bump, but it dosn't appear to be fully blown open. It's just right of the nb in the pic below, and you can see others on the board in this pic too.

It definitely feels rounded at the top compared to a few others too. The computer this works to seems to operate other then if you put in a PCI-e gfx card, there will be a lot of artifacts on the screen and sometimes it crashes.

Definitely if you read the symptoms section in the link i posted your gpu problem is referred to. Unfortunately the whole system will suffer instability over time. m 0 l Can't find your answer ?
