My System Specs

The issue isn't how much usage it gets so much as the ones that blew were shitty caps.

The only excuse companies have now for blown caps is the UCC KZG series. United ChemiCon is a reputable company, but the KZG series caps failed prematurely. Use of any other caps is just the company trying to save a buck, and regrettably Asus has done this in the past. I just replaced a handful of caps for a client that was financially unable to replace their motherboard/cpu/ram at this point.

Providing your new motherboard uses solid caps or name brand caps you'll probably retire the board from being too slow long before the caps fail.
