I need blown caps replaced on a P5B Deluxe

post #1 of 52
Thread Starter 
Hey, CL3P20 recommended I post here to see if anyone can do the work.

I got a P5B Deluxe with 2 ruptured caps and several more bulging

A plus if you live in the new york city area.

You must have the caps and knowledge of what needs to be done since I have neither

Update: This is already a work in progress

2 6.3 volt 1800 uF caps need replacing

Don't have the software on this computer to upload pics, but it should be an easy job if you've done any real work with a soldering iron. There's nothing even near the pins on the underside

There's also 3 6.3 volt 820 uF caps that are bulging a bit. I have no idea how expensive caps are or how long it takes to replace one of these things, so I'm not overly concerned about these

the caps will be roughly 2$ each... give or take a smidge.


Q- are any of the legs broken off in the mobo holes..?

Do all the caps that need to be replaced have legs that go throw the board or are any of them surface mount?

The pins go through the board as far as I can tell. They all stick out the other side. Not sure what a surface mount one is.

And none of the pins look broken to me

Also -- If you are able to test it, I'm shipping the board with CPU/RAM in the board (the CPU I'm def not taking out since I don't want to damage the fragile LGA 775 pins). The cooler i had to take off (since it's a massive tuniq tower). Right now it gives a BIOS error right before loading windows (or just has a black screen).

How much time does it take to replace the caps?

Also: I don't care what type of caps these are replaced with, the cheap ones are fine (or even used ones as long as they work). I only plan on using this for another month or two, since who knows what other problems this board has.
