Which Capacitors?

Hiya Peoples.

One for the Electronics Gurues.

A few on the Capacitos have gone in a good videocard I have, Replacing
them isn't a problem skills wise, but not sure if the ones I got will be
ok. The ones on the card are 820uF/6.3v, I didn't take much notice of
the uF specs until I looked at the capacitors on the card abit closer.
Is the uF range critical?

I got a pack of Capacitors from DSE for $8, It's a multipack.
The Capacitors in the pack are:
33uF/16v
470uF/16v
220uF/16v
100uF/16v
47uF/25v
330uF/25v
220uF/25v
100uF/25v
2.2uF/100v
33uF/35v
4.7uF/50v

Will any of the above be OK as a replacement for the failed 820uF/6.3v
Capacitors?
The failed ones have cracked & expanded on the top. There are 3 green
Capacitors & 2 brown capacitors of the 820uF/16v spec, Only 2 of the
green show cracking & expansion. There's also 1 black capacitor with the
specs of 100uF/16v.
Should I only replace the 2 failed green ones, All the green ones, Or
all the green & brown ones?
The black one is the only one that I have that's has a direct
replacement in the ones I bought.


Thanks in advance.

Aido.

Take it to someone who has more of a clue than you appear to have. This is
assuming that it is not a troll.

Youneed something much closer to the old caps , it needs about the same
value and can be the same voltage or better
like an 820/24v

Yes it be possible. If be having physical space, solder capacitor together
in parallel to sum uF. Can solder together 470uF + 330uF be close enough.

**Step 1:

Dispose of all the DSE caps. They're crap.

Step 2:

If you're in Sydney, contact WES Components and select appropriate
capacitors from their 'TK-R' range, as these are actually designed to
operate inside a computer case. The DSE ones are not. If you're not in
Sydney, you may find other suppliers with similar ranges. Farnell is also an
excellent, if not expensive, supplier. Go for 105oC rated caps.

Step 3:

Throw those DSE caps out. I bet you still have them.

Step 4:

Aido, if you are not in Sydney, try http://members.iinet.net.au/~worcom/
(And to be honest, I should remember where yuo are from, being a full-tim
lurker, infrequent poster to aus.moto)
They are Perth based and *used* to have a shop in Kensington, but I seem to
recall an email from then about closing shop and being only mail order...??
Mail order Aus wide of course.
(you may also want to see step 6.. but don't skip step 5)

Step 5:
See Step 3

Step 6:
*IF* you do happen to be in Perth, I think I have some 1000uF 6.3V 105C caps
left over from a Leadtek mainboard melt-down. Leadtek sent them to me after
the board was out of warranty. AND I should also have a few extras that I
did get from Worldwide Electronics...... used them in a DSE SD Set Top Box
that was notorious for throwing caps. See.. even DSE products don't like DSE
caps..!!!

Obviously don't throw them out. They work quite well in many applications so
you might use them somewhere. I have DSE caps running in my amp and they've
been there a few years now
