  1. I've a couple of capacitors going bad on a motherboard. The rating of the ones on the board is 3300µF @ 6.3v. I cant seem to find
    any matching at the local electronic stores but I have found some 3300µF @ 10.0v. Will these work the same or do i have to use the
    6.3? Thanks.
     
  2. They will work!
    sometimes higher voltage one used a lower voltage might have a bit lower
    capacity but the tolerance usually isn't that close..
    physical fit is sometimes a probelm because higher voltage units are usually
    bigger!

  3. Thanx for the info, size shouldn't be an issue. I'll pick up the 10's and see what I can do. thanx again!

  4. Make sure they are 105°C capacitors, or they won't last very long.
     
  5. 105C, got it... thanx again....
