Is anyone able to tell me the rating of a burnt out smd capacitor labled C5B on the rear of a GVP A1230 Turbo+ II (Jaws II) accelerator card.

Any help greatly appreciated

That picture isn't my board, just just a reference pic.

This is the board.

Even if it was to work without it i would like to replace the correct component when its all cleaned up.

I wouldn't just replace it. the board now has a lot of carbon build-up on it. you must remove all of that black stuff because you probably have a short to ground. you should ideally figure out why that cap blew up not simply replace it. replacing it wont solve your problem anyway. if it will work without it you could just clean up the area and remove the carbon and you may be lucky. I think most likely the board will now be dead because something else has blown up and that cap was the weakest link.
however if it does work just leave it off, it's just a filter cap connected between power and ground, most likely 0.1uF (104) or some other common part. If it is you don't need it.
BTW, logic suggests it's the same type as the nearby C5A, C5C etc. the board has several caps that are likely the same type (C5 A, B, C, D, E etc) so check any one of those and you'll have the correct rating.

Sorry i should have made myself more clear.

I don't plan to just replace it i plan to give the card a through cleaning and restore any damage before proceeding.

Thanks for the advice.
