ARRG! This is from one of my GA-7VRXP rev. 1.0 boards. It had been acting real flaky as of late but I never expected it to be caps. After I read about this I thought I would take a look at some of my boards just to see what brand they were. The black cap next to those green ones is also a GSC (as you can see) along with 90% of the caps on this board but only the 2 green ones are experiencing this problem (there are only 2 green ones on the entire board). The taller caps on this board are choyo brand (4x).
I am going to be contacting gigabyte to see what they will do, they better not try to get around this or I will be very pissed.
Further searching I came across this article: http://www.geek.com/news/geeknews/2003F ... 018535.htm
There are lots of gig users complaining of the same cap problem all from GSC.
The caps are GSC 105C 6.3V 1200uF Y10A. The ones not experiencing a problem are GSC 105C 25v (I imagine its supposed to be 2.5..) 300uF Y21C.
Thank you for posting this, if you hadn’t the board would have just ran till it died or got too flaky to continue using.
