Angry 8rda+ bulging and leaking capacitors= dead board? MB

Yesterday my computer went totally dead!
I´ve experienced several bluescreens during the last year but never found any problems.

It only starts fans and at first it gave FF code and then after som resets C1.

I had a look at the mb and saw several bulging and leaking capacitors by the CPU and memory.

I stripped it all down and tested to start with only memory and cpu+vga.
then it started to sound like an ambulance!

HELP!!

Is it possible to rescue the mb or do i have to by a new mb?

I bought it in sweden 2003-01-17
It is a 8RDA+ Rev. 1.1

I'm no expert, but I would guess its repairable. Your first port of call/email should be to your local Epox Office who will be able to advise further. It "may" take a while to get repaired and will probably cost as its out of warranty now. You "may" find its cheaper and faster to just buy a new 8RDA+ V2.2.

Good luck.
