capacitors on 7600

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
i received an 7600gs to replace onboard graphics , i didnt even check much vga itself , and put it and run , it runs quite fine , but just later i seen that 2 capacitors are broke ,like blown out . i wonder does it have any real effect on card , or no ? is it risky to use the card if its still running fine , only i noticed opengl sometimes freezes , like using opengl in halflife does freezes sometimes for 5secs but dx is running fine .idk is it capacitor problem . well marked capacitors are down .so question is will vga run fine still or its tempting to blown other caps or someting like that cap.jpg

i would just spend the couple bucks and replace them
its probably not gonna hurt anything, but the card just is gonna probably draw more power from the power supply
they arent hard to replace

I had a mobo and graphics card with those exact same FZ 6.3v caps blow a few years ago. They're pretty easy to replace. Just de-solder the old ones and replace them with new ones. I would replace all the 6.3 volt caps on that card if I were you while I was at it since there is only 4 of them. Here is where I get all my capacitor relate stuff:

Or you can get cheap ones at Radio Shack. I replaced mine on the mobo and graphics card I had that had blown caps about 3 years ago and they are still running fine since that. Heres what mine looked like before:

Also here is a link to 1 reason this happened with so many of those caps made a few years back

no .. but it sure wouldnt be helpful either...

 

 keep voltage the same... just increase the 'uf' amount..  Look for 1800uf or higher if you like.

 

 

*you sure its not a temp issue from being passively cooled? Those caps look ok from this angle... any of them swollen at all on the top/bottom?

everything on card is just a bit warm when its running , either heatsink is just bit warm max temp is 60 but feels like 30 and caps are just bit warm aswell.

this video says different , it says 99% to use same uf and its no problem to use higher voltage , since it means what maximum voltage it can handle not what it is running on redface.gif

If you change the size [voltage] of your cap.. your changing a hell of a lot more than its filtering capability and the amount of energy it holds...

 

 I have re-capped plenty of GPU's and mobos' without issue..and with great success. Upping the 'uf' increases the amount of energy at said voltage that the cap can hold... THIS is what you want, it does NO good to have a 25v cap somewhere its only getting 12v from... the cap will never be beneficial in this instance.

 

*If you dont want to take my word for it... dig around in the vmod section a bit, and ask some other members of the mod squad if you like. Im sure they will vouch for my level of knowledge.. and most likely recommend the same.
