Basically I'm just looking for the answers to some simple questions. okay so I've got a bulging cap on my P5GD1 Mobo, the thing is 6 years old. Is 6 years about the time frame for something like this to happen?
Also, Since day one I've been using the Overclock Profile: Ram: 500 FSB: 1000.
It showed my CPU running at 3.75Ghz, but I'm curious, was my CPU overclocked or was it just my mobo or something?
Also, is overclocking the reason for the cap failing prematurely?, or are these caps not particularly affected by overclocking.
