Wow, how can you tell they are bad from this blurry photo?
Simple, I can notice the different reflection on those two as opposed to all other caps.
ASRock boards from that era tend to develop bad caps quite a lot.
So... is it worth to change the caps or better just through the whole board out? I am quite handy with a soldering iron.
If you think it's worth to replace the caps, you can go ahead and replace them, although a 848P motherboard with only 2 DDR slots doesn't sound like the best idea.
