Ehrm.... :o Must've slipped my eye.

Thankfully, I have two identical boards, and the other has no bulging caps.


Sheesh, scared myself there. Thought I'd have to go out and spend more money. Phew.
I'm gonna get my new hardware. And my worklog here.

Those large caps are easy enough to replace, the only requirement is decent soldering skills plus some solder wick. Never change the capacitance value, or go lower than the voltage rating.. but a higher voltage rating is acceptable. The mobo may still be good!
Electronic circuits prefer pure DC voltages, and any AC ripple on the power circuits can cause all kinds of havoc. The greatest use of capacitors is to ensure a pure DC voltage. Some applications use capacitors as 'couplers', passing AC signals but blocking DC voltages.. as in audio amps.

Fast soldering skills. You don't want a low powered solder stick that needs more than a couple seconds to melt the solder. You'll melt other things along with it. :o

Quite true! Having "decent soldering skills", one would be aware of such pitfalls. With soldering, welding or brazing, you want to "get in and get out" with the heat so as not to damage or draw temper from other components. The smallest soldering iron would be a 50 watt blunt-tip pencil type, or a 75/150 watt gun.

Well, the heatsink came in two days after I ordered it. Usually happens with us, where we live. It's next-week shipping, and we recieve it two after ordering.

That usually happens with me, too. Newegg has a warehouse just over in Jersey, takes about 6 hours to drive there. What irritates me is when the part gets to my town in two days, and UPS takes it back off the truck, as I paid for standard 7 business days, not two-day shipping.
