    So my kitty pushed over my mobo and a cap broke loose.


    It says the following on the cap

    UPS163
    560
    6.3v

    i know its a 560uF cap at 6.3 volts.

    I recall that i was told that i can replace it with any voltage as long as the uF is the same. Is this correct?

    If the capacity and voltage are slightly higher, no worries. But depends a LOT of what role that capacitor is playing. Best practice is to replace with an exact match if it's available to you.

    Here is the cap in question. any suggestions?

    i can only locate 6.3v at 470uF. Is this safe/acceptable?
