    Yes. I think this is a MUST KNOW troubleshooting problem for people with older boards.

    Irregular problems = check capacitors! LOL :cool:

    If anyone is still interested I have taken the good capacitors from one of the boards and replaced the bad ones on the other board.

    Installation is going very quick and smooth so far. No strange or random errors!!!

    Soldering is difficult, i burned my thumb twice in the same spot.

    Another update for anyone looking still

    Those capacitors that I replaced... yup, still good and running. The system has been running since my last post on here... and its been running 24/7. Monitor and check the system every day.

    So, it is possible for an amature to solder capacitors on motherboards.

    Hey, thanks for giving us this update. Just how many did you need to replace?

    Well, now that it has been months ago.... I'd say it was about 5 capacitors.. Give or take 2. I just remember destroying a few when I was trying to remove good ones from the (worse) motherboard to replace on the (better) board.
