Broken Capacitor: Gigabyte GA-890FXA-UD5 HELP! - Page 2

post #11 of 14
Yeah it should be fine, most electrolytics have capacitance error ranges of 20-50% anyway and the circuits are designed with this in mind. If it was a dedicated filtering cap you may find problems though,

Yeah, so once i bought the board and got it home, the cap was in the bottom of the box. It wasnt in a case when I moved it so god only knows how it came off, but it wasnt while i was adding a card or anything. I'd love to solder on a new cap, but where does one come by a cap like this? I took it to radio shack and the girl behind the counter had no idea what it was or anything similar.

This capacitors that are used on motherboards are not ordinary kind ones.
They all have LOW ESR characteristics.
Normal capacitors that you usually find in stores that sell this kind of parts are no good in this scenario.
I recommend you to either go a to place where they know to solder this things or let it be.
Or maybe ask Gigabyte the role of that capacitor in the circuit (as it s numbered ) by using their support.
Once we know what the purpose of it is we know if you really need to put something back in there.
Usually this kind of cap (value used) usually cuts ripple and behaves like a buffer so you should either hear some kind of low frequency noise either static noise in various scenarious.Personally i wouldn t worry as the Realtek chip itself should have some anti ripple stuff integrated.

Wow, thanks for the info. At least we know a little about capacitors. It seems to be running pretty stable so far as reported by hailtotheking. I will contact gigabyte if problems arise. Thanks!

We will update soon...
