Dell Optiplex 330 went KABOOM!!!!

Took the ram with it

Oh, very nice, Soul!  😉 Poor Samsung rams get busted badly… looks like this failure is not repairable. At least it does not look to be... but I would be happily proven wrong 🙂 Yet to me it seems that something seriously give up to fry the poor rams...  😮 (maybe after cleaning and before you put the mainboard on your wall you could tell us, what is written on the busted caps, so we know, what brand/type they are?)

I dont have a picture to add. Still think its funny that there is a thread dedicated to dead caps.

Well, it is IMHO a good idea to have place, where we can share these failures. As warming and as for education purposes, that there can be a loud boom from your PC comming too 😉 Or that not all instability at not overclocked state is because of Windows or some drivers. Caps can have a role too, even the polymer solid caps seems to be better in this regard.
