    Hey guys,

    So I had a component blow on the motherboard..PC still running fine but would rather patch this up before something else goes.. being a uni student I can't afford another one haha..

    In the picture to the left is the blown one...but a similar one is on the right with the "P" stamped on it...the blown one has a value of 150-24

    The motherboard is a Asus P6T deluxe v1

    Thanks in advance guys

    I am guessing it is a PTC, resettable fuse.

    Here is a link to a cross reference list where you can find manufacturers and part numbers.

    The 150-24 is an option that is available.

    The destruction of this protection device might also be a sign of a problem with circuitry or devices whose current runs through this device.

    Yeah, what he said... My guess is that you have some electrolytic capacitors going bad in your onboard power supply.
