I going to replace the problematic clock capacitor in one of my original XBox consoles, but knowing very little about them, I'm not sure what capacitor I should get, assuming it matters.  


According to the how-tos that I've found, I see that I need "2.5V 1F" which is simple enough, but can I just stop by Radio Shack and get whatever they happen to have in stock, or should I be looking for a specific brand?   I don't wanna replace it with an inferior part only to find that it, too, leaks in a few years.


Thanks in advance for any info!

If I can suggest something?


Go to console5.com and use their contact form to ask about this. I was just advised they are in the middle of testing various super caps for this as we speak and are looking for someone to test this...
