My Asus mother board on my first desktop is still running after 87,648 hours straight. It has been sitting in a Cosmos Coolermaster case delegating printer functions for 10 years straight, 24 hours a day. When I saw "All Japanese made capacitors" on the Asus box, I was sold. I have been repairing mostly music oriented electronics for 36 years, and the capacitors are the cheapo parts that die the fastest in EVERYTHING, going clear back to the days of the vacuum tube. Japanese capacitors are so highly revered that the Chinese are counterfeiting them now. So Asus is the winner for me.
