No, LG is the series. I've seen these caps in a similar power supply branded "YC" (not yang chun btw). They were all bloated. It probably stands for Yellow Capacitor. :D
No wonder it doesn't work! You installed the coils backwards! :D

Thank C_hegge. :-) That's a picture of the internals of the Xilence 700W power supply. OEM is Wintech, which had been out of business for over 3 years now.

The attachment is a screenshot of a Gigabyte H61M-S2P-B3 motherboard. I'd like to know what brand these capacitors with LF marking on them are? :thnx:

Those are nichicon LF series. They are japan made solid polymer caps and are excellent quality.

they are capxon. They may be OK as polymers, but their electrolytics are still junk.

Thanks, c_hegge. I thought intel would use something better than capxon though. :S
