  • Capacitors needed for DIY and repair

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:

    They are over the specification for any motherboard capacitors (5-6.3V 500-1500uF could be enough for mobo's) but overspecification is much better then underspecification.
    If it fits it work in motherboards too.

    Cons:

    The size is big, as it is mentioned already here, you have to check does your motherboard have enough space for these.
    I've seen capacitors with 16V 1500uF rate in half of the size of them, but for that price it is ok.

    OtherThoughts:

    I don't have a tester for capacitors but do not see any issue with them.
    The package has 20 of them, no one was missing.

    I plan to use most them for DIY DC regulator circuits as buffer capacitor, for this the ESR rate is also important, I will see how good wil they perform.

    Bottomline:

    I was choosing them because they had best voltage/capacity/price ratio in the low voltage (5-12Volt) range at DX.
    For motherboard capacitors a smaller size version could maybe better.
