Leaking capacitators...

I got an old Epox 8K9AI and my capacitators are leaking...
I have read somewhere that Epox replaces these motherboards even if the warranty has expired.
Is that true?

I don't know if they do or not (frankly, I would be a bit surprised if they did, but if they do then good for them). However, the article I posted in the Motherboards section of the Front Page on replacing the capacitors for the 8RDA+ should be instructive. Although the exact values of capacitors used by the 8K9AI may be different, the same family of parts that I reference in the article should be usable if you want to tackle the problem yourself.
