That is fine the cap's in your board are generally better quality.

 

Is it a version 1.0-1.1?

Soft modding is like masturbating, It gets the job done but it's nothing like the real thing.

version 1.0 i bought it as broken off ebay and i can't get it to boot. i had to repair a solder joint on the power supply so now the unit powers on but won't boot. if the caps in my board are good quality then which xbox tend to have the bad caps?

there were no error codes, just a completely blank screen(and no sound). the led acted as if the xbox functioned normally. the disc tray also wouldn't open despite having a know good opening/closing drive attached.

It sound like the BIOS has failed commonly called a coma box

 

You could try the 3 wire trick and see if it will boot.

Or fit  a mod chip and see if it boots.

already tried that. i also tried an alladin modchip. i still gotta go back and check that each trace was successfully making a connection to the correct pin of the mod chip. i was wondering if it may be the caps since something caused the psu to burn out a solder joint at the same time.

Where was the bad solder joints on the power supply?

Can you measure the voltage at the 12 pin power connector?

the bad solder joint was at the plug. i know the foxconn psu are suppose to be bad about that but this was a delta psu. if u turn the psu over and look on the back, it was the right pin that had desoldered/burned. i cleaned it just a little and kinda halfway soldered it for testing purposes(in other words, i'm gonna go back and clean/solder it better when the xbox works) to test it and the system powered on fine. i have also tested the xbox with a known good power supply and it's doing the exact same thing.

If you tried a aladdin chip it sounds like it may have not been soldered properly or the D0 was not connected to the correct spot.
