How to find and replace this missing chip on back of GTX460? - Page 2

post #11 of 14
Sorry, took out my multimeter and realized it's a cheap-o that can't measure capacitance. For what it's worth, it looks like it's the same type of capacitor as installed in C186/C161/C159, and others on the board. They're brown-colored vs the grey or black.

I appreciate it man though. Wish we knew it's parameters so i could just order the darn thing haha biggrin.gif

I may have to get another broken 460 and remove it's chip and replace it...

Going to need to pick up a soldering torch thumb.gif

Most of the time, capacitors of such minute capacitance are just used to "clean" (stabilize) incoming power, there is a chance that if you bridge it, it will in fact clear up the artifacting issue because that particular circuit would be connected again, but there is also a chance that it will become unstable. I doubt though, that it would become unstable at its normal speed, only if you overclocked it. I really think that either bridging it or using the same one as the ones around it will be fine. Hope I provided something of use, good luck!
