Can 1500uf capacitors replace 1800uf ones?
« on: 29-October-19, 02:31:08 »

Hi, so I got this very old MSI motherboard at work which locks up halfway into the windows installation and has a couple of blown capacitors and I am planning to swap them out. The motherboard is MSI ms 7005 and it got these weird 6.3v 1800uf capacitors. The question is, can I swap them with 1500uf ones and will it fix my above-mentioned problem? (Sorry for bad English, I don't speak fluently)

It might work.....but honestly, you should be able to get some.
I'm guessing you're from Russia? There should be electronics available there to fulfill that. just about any 6.3v 1800uF caps should work. I have a bunch in my basement that I pulled from some electronics long ago.

Check Ebay. You should find some there.

1500 uF is close enough.  Actually if you use capacitors with extremely low ESR, such as the solid polymer type, you can get by with much less than the original capacitance and not degrade performance.  Google "poly mod" for more information about this.
