Electrolytic capacitors have a finite lifespan, and when they deterioriate, hardware may act a little strangely or may not work at all. For more information, see our Identifying Bad Capacitors wiki page.
Console5 kits are assembled and tested by referencing real hardware, not derived from inaccurate schematics or service manuals. Caps are appropriately sized and will typically fit inside existing shielding and case designs, unless noted. Our kits meet (and frequently exceed) OEM requirements, in both voltage and temperature ratings. We only use high-quality caps from well known, well established manufacturers.
