You are correct, that large cap is leaning with a bulge on top. The MOBO caps are all good with one exception, there is one large cap that has a slight bulge on top, no leakage, no leaning/pushed up....how much of a concern should this be?

On an A64 3200+ motherboard? Not much concern at all... if it's still working now, chances are it'll keep working long after the current owner decides to send it to a landfill.... ;)

Glad to here that, I was thinking it should be alright as over the weekend when I was housekeeping the PC it ran fine, did not show/do anything consistent with cap failure. This was all done without the Nvida card (which I installed lastly).

Hey! I finally got this thread on topic (MOBO's & CPU's) lol.
