The XLR8 range has it's warranty extended
 
PNY are probably better known for their memory than graphics cards, but they are a pretty good manufacturer and they just got better. If you own one of their high end XLR8 cards, you will be pleased to know that the standard 1 year warranty will be extended to a lifetime warranty. You have to sign up to their website, but that is hardly a down side considering what you get in return. The lifetime warranty offer will begin on the 1st of September, available only on the GTX295 1792MB, GTX285 1024MB, GTX275 896MB and  the GTX260 896MB.
 
PNY's senior marketing manager for PC components, Nicholas Mauro, said "Consumers who purchase our XLR8 GTX series graphics cards are typically gamers seeking stunning graphics performance. Purchasing a high-end graphics card is definitely an investment and with our new lifetime warranty, we’re giving users the peace of mind to play with confidence".
 
For further information about PNY's range and to register on September the 1st, visit www.PNY.com.

Got a XFX 7600GT out of the tech-skip the other day with 2 obvious blown caps. Gunk oozing from the top of them - even tho they're "solid" caps.

Getting "guy in the lab" to replace the caps in the morning. I'm sure it'll be ok.

Same guy fixed my SkyHD by replacing 5/6 bulged caps. (happens to have 50million caps in stock, plus a cpc/rs access).

Mostly power regulation these caps.

Hate to disappoint but that's a new one on me too. Normally Enermax units use jP (CE-TUR series) caps on the secondary side, but that one doesn't have the normal markings from what I can see in the pic. It's most likely something low voltage like 16v and around 2200uf but thats just a guess.

Yes it is 16v but it's 470uf.

Good job mayhem :D

One thing I've found handy when soldering in new components (especially when they have long legs) is to wrap some wire around the legs before you begin soldering. This helps dissipate the heat from the soldering iron and prevent damage to your new capacitors/components.
