Interesting article, Miknow...sure glad my Abit board wasn't on their listing of suspect mobos...
Of course, I haven't had those kind of problems since I got rid of my old DFI mobo...It was a POS...maybe it had bad caps...:eh?:

I have 1 KA7 and one KA7-Raid that BOTH have popped caps - JPCON brand. I haven't gotten around to repairing them, as it's almost impossible to find the same exact size caps, and the more common larger ones don't quite fit in some areas = "make fit"

They still work just fine under normal clock settings though :D, even with ALL the power caps blown.
