I ordered an Aopen MB from MCM awhile back
and even though the packaging had never been opened
before, all of the caps on the motherboard were
swollen.

I was unab'e to find any evidence of prior use and
concluded that the caps went bad from the board simply
sitting on the shelf in a warehouse somewhere.

MCM offered to send me a replacement, but
I figured they'd just send me another board with the same
problem so instead I just kept the board and replaced
all of the caps with hopefully superiorPanasonic
caps from Digkey

Fortunately the board worked and in fact, I just
typed this post on it :-)

That's the first time I've heard of caps swelling on an *unused* board. I
happen to have an Aopen s661FXm (gulp) What was the model number of your
board? Also, what was the brand name of the bad caps?

Thanks!
