Yes, saves some time.. :) But I still think I'm gonna replace it,
doesn't seem too good that it's that hot ...Do you have any
explanation for it anirudh?

Also, I heard that it doesn't matter if one capacitor fails on a
motherboard, because there are enough to keep the system running. Is
that true?
