Fish smell from my LC, my nose dies everytime I power it on

Recommended Posts

Hi everybody, yes, you read correctly, when I power up my LC there comes an unbearable fish smell, I've already recapped the Motherboard, but the problem is still present.

How can I solve this? Everytime I power up the LC I die instantly due to the strong smell.

Thank you.

I think the same thing, time ago I read about a guy saying that the ELNA caps on his SE/30 PSU caused this strong smell, I never had this problem with my Macs so I ask there to be sure about the source of the smell

The amount of hacking that you'd have to do to get an ATX power supply is not worth potentially ruining your LC board, imo. Just recap your PSU, even if it has not failed yet, there's a good chance it will in the future. It's easier than recapping the LC board too!
