Foxconn Mobo Repair *Completed, and it works!* - Page 2

post #11 of 35
I went to badcaps and those guys are a we bit more pricey than what I'm use to and they did not even have one of the caps I need in stock frown.gif

I understand people have to mark up the products to make a profit but at what point would it be to much money for me to spend on trying to repair a board that I don't know works. Does any one have any other cheaper alternatives for getting hard to find Capacitors for mobo's like the DFI Lanparty NF4 SLI DR Expert?

I found a place that carries cheaper and same specifications sizes and all but they are not the same exact KZG caps that came on the Expert mobo.

Oh wow, I so have a habbit of pirating a thread for my own benefit wink.gif j/k

All jokes aside I'm really not trying to hijack the thread but get some info and possibly give some if at all possible.

/Tunes in. Have quite a few badcaps boards lying about. This is my kinda thing tongue.gif

Good luck dude, keep us updated if you go ahead with it!

Got everything ready. I am still new at this, and as you are about to see, my soldering skillz are teh suxorz redface.gif
dsc05576qh.jpg

I am not sure why, but it seemed to take forever for my iron to make the solder flow. It was melting the solder that I was going to use just fine, but the solder on the board took a while.

Then, once I got the cap out, the solder was solidified back in the hole! I tried and tried to melt it out and use that 'suction' thing, but from what I can tell that thing is a gimmick! I ended up just taking a needle(sewing kind, not heroine kind, lol) and pushing through the solder. Then the cap was able to slide right into place.

It took forever to get it in...Inb4 thats what she said!
dsc05579o.jpg

Cut off the ends, in this pic you can see the ugly solder job...lol
dsc05580r.jpg

All finished, though it does not match the others aesthetically, at this point its the least of my worries...worriedsmiley.gif
dsc05581c.jpg


The cool thing is the mobo has little power and reset switches on the corner of it, I popped on a cpu cooler and fired it up to see if it would run and it turned on and ran!biggrin.gif:yessir:

I don't have a gpu to test it with at the moment. I will get back to you once I have the time to take my gpu out of my main and see if I can get something up and running.

As others have already mentioned equal to (voltage wise) or larger is perfectly acceptable, you can even mess about a little with the uF ratings (but don't stray too far from spec), I've recently heard of a school of thought that basically opted to fit the largest electrolyte capacity component in the given space in the pursuit of longevity, obviously the higher the voltage handling ability of the capacitor the more electrolyte you'll need between the plates (unseen internal electrode endings) thumb.gif

I'm surprised to see that cap is a Rubycon, perhaps it copped a fair bit of dirty ripple off a El-Cheapo PSU? thinking.gif


Good work resurrecting this Foxconn Mainboard too BTW! thumb.gifapplaud.gifthumbsupsmiley.png

Yeah I linked badcaps more as a resource than anything as I don't buy from there either not being in the CONUS and all, I have purchased from the SamXon sales rep that used to frequent that site (purchased in mini bulk 20~50 unit lots) and other Aussies members on the odd occasion.

Hitano also make decent quality low ESR capacitors but their spec' is slightly higher than the Rubycon, Sanyo, SamXon, Nichicon etc. equivalent, out of curiosity (seeing as you've already hijacked this thread somewhat) what values are you chasing exactly? thinking.gif

Let's see if I can remember off the top of my head here.

16v 1500uF 10x20mm KZG
6.3v 1000uF 8x12-13mm KZG
6.3v 1500uF 8x20mm KZG

I could go look again if you really have to know. wink.gif

Yeah, RoHS solder is pain to de-solder. That is what most (if not all) mainstream electronics use. It is lead-free and therefore needs more temperature to flow.
