Is there a way to replace the shitty capacitors yet?  Had a ton of them die at work from caps exploding all at once.

amazon surprisingly has a good amount of caps, if the text on the caps are still legible and you can see what type they are, you can get a pack from amazon for next to nothing, also im surprised the caps are poping like that, mine turns 10 this year and i haven't had those problems yet, best thing i can suggest if you dont want to put the work into re soldering all the caps is pick a used board up from ebay, 780 MT boards go for like 14$

It's better to go at a reputable distributor of electronic components and buy capacitors from there, you get discounts if you buy 10, 25, 50, 100 ... and they stock low esr capacitors as required by the boards, not potentially some random general purpose capacitors someone tricks you into thinking they're good enough

 

Go to digikey.com, Mouser, Farnell (newark.com in us/canada), rs components , tme.eu in europe etc all known distributors of components.

 

For the capacitors used in the vrm of cpu solid (polymer) capacitors can be used instead of classic electrolytic ... they're often cheaper than electrolytic capacitors these days and have less issues.
