I know that I'm not the only one having problem with leaking and busted caps: capacitors oozing a brownish crud on the motherboard. But, in my case with the ABit BP6 board that is used for the OS2 World server it the reason why the system has been so unstable that last six month.

For more reading check out following article at spectrum.ieee.org.

Thanks I never came around to do that since we managed to get some fundings together from the OS2 community to build a new server. But, still got the mobo as a spare part mobo to another server and still have plans to fix it.
