    After 2 dead M1-ATX and 1 dead M2-ATX (160w my ***...), I bought an Opus 150w and never looked back.

    I know how small these capacitors are. I tried to solder one on that was bumped off an A64 and solder to one for a VCORE mod. What a nitemare! Glad you guys found a fix, but send your results to mini-box and have them get everything sorted out. This isn't your problem and it's not worth it.

    Yes you can tell which version you have, I can't remember exactly how... search for it. It has to do with the number on a resistor or something. I checked it and mine's a new version (thank god).

    where do we find out how to ID them then?

    There's a lot to search through on here RE: M2-ATX and I only get a 1/2hr lunch

    how does one test (or perhaps measure) one of these tiny caps? I have a multimeter but what setting do i put it on? These tiny things arent marked.

    Some multimeters can measure capacitance and that would be the easy way to measure it. The cheap (using an existing multimeter) and hard way would be to rig some some resistors, a voltage source and build a RC circuit. You would need to use a timer, find the time constant, and do some calculations.

    I noticed someone said this timing issue has been fixed with newer M2-ATX models. Will this newer model work with almost every standard motherboard or is there anything else that people need to look out for before buying?

    Look for some type of capacitance measurement symbol C.
