Funny you should mention the GX720 capacitors, as I just fixed one last night. It's always that one capacitor by the RAM that goes - 1500uf at 6.3v. Replace it, and you're good. In this case, I scavenged a cap off another junk motherboard. Took all of fifteen minutes. The machine ran perfectly all night after that.
