There is this Aussie seller on eBay, selling cheap motherboards. Got these two Asus KVM-VM boards. Socket 754, VIA PCIe chipset, nothing fancy, but useful.
Anyway, both arrived. I do my usual motherboard prep. The first board posts, flashed the latest BIOS, caps look fine, all Nichicon in the VRM area. The other one, the famous KZG at the VRM out, all three rounded tops. That board didn't post.
I recently purchased 100! 3300uF 6.3V caps from Panasonic, because it's always these VRM out caps that seem to fail on the boards I'm getting.
De-soldered the three, put in the new ones, and all working again :)
Was a 5 minute job and I'm a happy camper. First time I had a board that didn't post because of caps.
