Hi, as title I've an Sapphire RX 480 Nitro+ OC 8GB. I'm an "active" (i think) bios modder (look at my sign if you want) since I've more experience on software rather than hardware (btw I've the basics of electronics/soldering/...).

Before going more deep on bios modding I'd like to first caps mod this card. Inspired by buildzoid's video I want to try this "easy" mod... My only issue is that I do not want to screw up capacitors selection and soldering (I know how to solder I do not want to solder int the wrong places)...

If you need more infos on this card you can find the PCB analysis (by buildzoid) and here there are some back/front PCB photos, also google is quite full of them.

Right now my card as this custom hybrid cooling solution but:

  • First pic that's my father's hand
  • It has been changed a bit to lower the space between cooler and VRMs
  • pipes were kept for esthetics, now removed to lower overall weight
  • the "center" of the old cooler is now a pendant
  • the back heathsink can be removed if needed to solder something but i'd like to avoid it
  • voltage will not exceed 1.3 V

Thank to everyone who would like to help

if you want through hole caps, Nichicon NE FPCAP should be good. if you want SMD, i'll choose either Panasonic, AVX, or KEMET Tantalum Polymer caps
