CRC Error

This is not a specific linux hardware issue, but I had a customer replace a server motherboard with some blown capacitors on it. I replaced the M/B for the customer and kept the old M/B as a toy. Replacing bad caps has always been a little hobby of mine. I've never had any issue with doing this before, but I'm getting CRC error kernel panics when I try to load any linux OS on it. It ran a preloaded HDD with Linux on it just fine, but known-good CDs all bomb out with these CRC errors.

Has anyone seem this before? I'm almost certain I have some type of issue with the replaced caps, but could this be caused by something else? I know this is a pretty vague question, but I'm just curious if I should continue digging on this issue of just dump the motherboard in the trash.
