    Need help picking best capacitor for mobo repair. What is better? High or low ripple

    I need to replace a few caps on a Biostar TA780G M2+ and while I know what brands and class capacitors are best this one thing still eludes me. What is best, a high or low ripple rating on a capacitor? I have tried to find the answer but the only answers I have found are long, drawn out highly technicle answers that leave me going "Wtf?".

    Caps that have a higher ripple current rating are better.

    In layman's terms: They will last longer, and do a better job while under stress.
