So some months ago I bought this motherboard, which unlucky proved to be non working (so far).
It had a bulging cap near the cpu, so I changed the whole set of caps near the cpu (marked in lime green).
I removed the caps marked in red and forget which was the value as uf and voltage, so if anyone could check his motherboard it will be helpful (I suppose those are 1500uf v6.3).
The caps marked in blue have been desoldered tested and proved working in specs.
Now the issue: the motherboard didn't turn on without the cr2032 battery installed (is it a safety measure?) installed the battery the motherboard turned on with black screen and the infamous ---- on the debug card then after a minute or so it turns off (I'm not sure if a thermal protection for the cpu which gets very hot despite a copper base heatsink).
I'm also looking for someone who would be able to repair it, imho the problems aren't the caps but is somewhere else, I usually shipped the stuff to a reputable member of this forum, but it's actually unavailable.
