Default Capacitor identification

Hi, I'm new to this forum and I'm hoping someone can help me identify a capacitor. It is a surface mounted capacitor on a Playstation 3 motherboard, I have uploaded a pic of it in the hope that someone can read the markings on the top. I think it is a 16 volt one, but I need to know the capacitance value as I'm trying to source a couple of new ones, rather than having to buy a complete faulty motherboard off ebay to use for parts. Thanks!

It's a 150uF, 16V aluminum organic polymer ("solid") capacitor.

Not sure what the "85K" represents. The "E" next to it would make you think "ESR", but "85K" wouldn't be a measurement of ESR and usually solid caps don't have an ESR rating.

85K is part of Chemi-con's id/size code: http://www.chemi-con.co.jp/e/catalog...e-e-111201.pdf

Read from top to bottom, it's: NCC (Nippon Chemi-Con) logo, cap code (series and dimensions), capacitance, rated voltage. This particular one is an NCC NPCAP PXE-series, 16V 150 uF.

Oh, and if you can't find any, OS-CON SVPC-series are perfect 1:1 replacements. In this case, look for p/n 16SVPC150M.

85 degree C likely vs 105 degree this would be my guess
