Dead mainboards
A friend brought in a dead mainboard where the caps probably are the source of the malfunctioning. Now, I can easily fix his board, the downside is that I can't find low ESR caps that easily, I'd be glad if people could supply me with a dead mainboard that they got around somewhere. The parts I'm looking for:

electrolytic caps, 1500uF, 6.3V, low ESR

capacitance may be higher

Please help me, price can be discussed, but dead mainboards only have few useful components, I'm not going to spend more money then it will take to just replace the board ;-)

Got them available at local electronics farmer, 0,7€ each, not really low priced if you ask me :/ For 15€ I could order 8500 resistors few weeks back :)
