Elitegroup Computer Systems (ECS), well-known for its motherboard products, has announced that all their motherboards will be using solid capacitors around the CPU region.
ECS stated that the CPU consumes the most power during heavy computation, therefore the CPU power regulation area requires much more durable components. Thus, ECS opted the option of using solid capacitors instead of traditional electrolytic capacitors in areas around the CPU for all their motherboards. Solid capacitors typically operate at 10% lower temperature, offer 1000 times more electrical conductivity, have better reliability and longer lifespan. ECS also guarantees that they are using authentic solid capacitors unlike some manufacturers which use traditional electrolytic capacitors but cover them up with a solid capacitor shell.
