Sacon FZ caps on Magic-pro - it is a JetWay OEM



Don't let them fool you. They are NOT polymers, these are sleevless electrolyte caps, and a bad ones, I might add. JetWay do this all the time. Remember their mobos full of GSC crap-caps? Now we know, that GSC = Evercon = Sacon = Apsun - and this is not good news at all:

Asus P5K-E - exploded Apaq polymer cap 270uF 16V on Vcore imput, just right after PSU...



Why? Well, because user NewBeetle from Xtremesystems forums did overclock with OCZ PSU and only a 520W one, and filled with Teapo caps... and Apaq is not exactly a good brand either.

My DFI LP B mainboard lived nicely and peacefully, till a loud explosion come out of the case and machine fail miserably. When I check it out, I see there a Chemicon KZG caps in the Vcore input filters (1500uF 16V ones) entierly destroyed:



And machine no longer working. That way exactly the wake up call for me, regarding bad caps :( Yea, Chemicon's are supposed to be a good caps (except the KZG, KZJ, TMV, TMZ ones), but even good cap can fail when before him is a BAD CAP in PSU that generate excessive ripple... And in the Antec NEO 480W PSU are Fuhjyyu caps, witch are considered inferior crap even between bad caps!

X-Fi Fatal1ty soundcard, 220uF 16V Jamicon crap cap, user Raggingbone from Creative forum



PS. bad caps, Jamicons, are on X-Fi used for voltage filering (even they are not low-ESR at all) as well, as for audio signal decoupling (even they are not audio grade caps at all and hence they damage the sound of the card notably (!) ...). Thanks, Creative!

Ouch...I bet he had to change his shorts as well as his mobo after that.  :P

I remember the first time that happened to me.  I was down on the ground and had my Hi-Power drawn (man I miss that pistol) before I even realized WTF had happened.  :P
