My OptiPlex GX 270 was probably one of them. That model was known for bad capacitors, but mine had the brands they used to replace bad ones in most spots, except the VRM area behind the CPU. They were bulged and leaking for like the one and a half years I used it or so? I never had a problem with it, oddly. It even had a Prescott (high power draw and hot running) in it at one point for a short while too.

Yep, them Opti's 240/260/270/280 were notorious for crappy caps. tongue.gif

Unless of course you get a new card.
You should see some of the Dell PC's with busted caps just chugging along. Granted they won't last, but off they go, powering up and working.

the cause that i found out was unfortunately heat. this card isnt a card that requires a pcie connector so a bad psu is ruled out, mobo is fine up to this day too, no bulges anywhere. it was when i ran my card in the 100s C when the fan started failing. but from day 1, this card ran real hot under stress 84 C

To be fair, that wasn't Dell's fault. It was happening with Apple, Sony, and HP at the time too (of course, Dell wouldn't admit anything and HP came out and admitted it, so I'm not saying how they handled it all was merited). The capacitors were just bad though, and that was beyond their control once it had happened. The OptiPlex GX 270 was definitely the poster child for it.
