Hi list,
I have a Gigabyte GA-K8NNXP motherboard with about half a dozen blown 
capacitors, possibly due to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Capacitor_plague
(See also http://theinquirer.net/?article=17075 ) although in my case, the 
capacitors look like they are only blown at the top seal and are not leaking 
at the bottom.

Is there anyone in Canberra who can get out a soldering iron and replace the 
blown capacitors with more reliable ones? I don't want to do it myself, I'd 
probably do a botched soldering job, and anyway, I don't have all of the most 
appropriate tools for the job.
Best, Paul
