quote: When replacing caps should all caps, bad or good, be replaced?
my advice after some years with G-LUXON and other low quality capacitors from PcShips motherboards. Some batches were simply BAD and ready to die after a year or two. For the story: on 2 systems I replaced the faulty caps by "same brand but another batch" taken from other older boards. One system still works
if you have a "batch" of SAME caps and some are dieing, better replace this batch. This applies only to the SAME brand, capacity, voltage capacitors on a single board.
Among different brands I worked with the best I got are Rubycon, but they are EXPENSIVE! I got more from damaged boards than I bought, I am in "recycling & DIY area" Greetings from west Africa
