Voodoo 5 Capacitor Replacement – ★★★☆☆ 3/5 Skill

Voodoo 5 Capacitor Replacement – ★★★☆☆ 3/5 Skill

In one of my older videos I went through and replaced the capacitors on a Voodoo 5 to get it working again. It is a card that uses all SMD parts but not too many different types.

I had some very kind help on Vogons for determining the correct series of parts to match the original capacitors on the Voodoo 5. These are as close as you can get to the original parts with modern replacements.
