Refer to the list of Apple iMac G5 Power Supplies with detailed pictures and capacitor upgrade replacement comparisons. Be sure to verify which Apple iMac G5 power supply you have.
Capacitors are all high quality, switching power supply grade, low ESR, and long life ratings.
Upgrade notice: I have upgraded some of the capacitors to higher voltage ratings. This was done as a matter of choice, in that a higher voltage is not necessarily required in the power supply, but where appropriate sizes were available in higher voltage ratings, I made the upgrade substitutions for extended performance and life expectancies.
Upgrade notice: Because of the difficulty in obtaining 10mm X 30mm 4700uf 6.3 Volts rated capacitors, I have upgraded the 4700uf to the 12.5mm X 25mm size 6.3 Volts rated capacitor. These 4700uf capacitors will fit into the space on the PSUs, but will stand above the circuit board slightly because of other components in the way at the base of the larger diameter capacitor.
** Note the replacement value of the different voltage rating 1000uF caps (three 6.3 V and one 10 V) to a total of four 1000uF 16 volt caps. These 1000uF caps are slightly taller but will clear the top cover of the PSU.
Also note the original 4700uf capacitors, in my opinion, were standing too high and shorting out on the top of the metal power supply cover as can be seen in the original trouble shooting section of the Apple iMac G5 Power Supply repair article I wrote. Note also, that some of the capacitors have been upgraded in voltage ratings as I have said before. This was done as a matter of choice, in that a higher voltage is not necessarily required in the power supply, but where appropriate sizes were available in higher voltage ratings, I made the upgrade substitutions for extended performance and life expectancies.
Included with the order is a replacement chart showing the original value capacitor and the replacement value capacitor with your PSU cap order. Please refer to this chart when installing the new caps.
Be sure to double check your mother board capacitors too. Purchase both the MOB and PSU caps at the same time and save on shipping costs.
