Foxconn Mobo Repair *Completed, and it works!*

post #1 of 35
Thread Starter 
I have picked up a Foxconn C51XEM2AA-8EKRS2H with a FX-62 from a friend of mine and was wondering what you all thought of the board/processor. I know for a fact that it has a blown cap, and I have not tried to fire it up yet, should I try to see it if starts(even though I can see a blown cap)? I just fixed a some caps on a broken monitor I had, is it the same deal with these, just more precise?

Wwll, maybe, if the blown cap haven't damaged nothing more, and nothing else except the cap is indeed damaged...

Go buy a capacitor and replace the blown one and see what happens. A capacitor will probably run less than a buck.

Hi'ya Hydraulic congratulations on your repair of the monitor (and undertaking this project), as you'll probably already know you can't just whack any old cap into that mainboard, it'll need to be a similarly spec'd (uF wise) component with equal voltage handling ability (slightly higher V rating is okay) but most importantly is the need for a low ESR rating.

In case you haven't already checked them out, the guy's over @ badcaps.net specialize in this type of project and may even be able to point you in the right direction as far as a local outlet for quality capacitors

BTW just curious what markings are on the capacitor that went belly up?

Any chance of a better resolution picture?

I ordered my replacement caps from there.

Sure thing, but this is all I got at the moment.



So far when replacing caps I have been dead on with keeping the same specs as the one that they are replacing. What is this you speak of, that they can be ' close ' to same specs? I manly ask because there are some caps that I can get from radioshack that might be 35v instead of the 25v I needed for my monitor. for the monitor I still ordered the ones I needed, but 10v seems like it would be a little more than good for it.

As long as the voltage rating is equal to or greater than the ones you are replacing you will be fine.

should I try to keep it relatively close? Like these are 6.3 volts, the decimal place makes me thing they need to be exact, but if I were to go with 10v would that see me any benefit? Like more OC potential(depending on the ones you replace of course)

Not really sure although I don't believe that it would make much difference at all. I'm not an electronics expert. Try Google.

For capacitors, the rated voltage is based on the dielectric strength of the medium between the plates. As long as you replace with equal or greater value, you will be fine. If you put a lower voltage in there, the capacitive effect can go belly up.

See I knew that someone had the answer. That is what I thought but I don't like giving advice if I don't really know the answer.
