The usual reason why a Capacitor pops is that it wasn't a good quality part to start with. There are some brands that are just junk. Some where it depends on the model of the capacitor and sometime even a brand know for good capacitors has defects.
I would just replace the card and not worry about it. If the computer is one that was built to order and not a name brand the chances are that voltage readings can be viewed in the Bios Setup section.

SpeedFan is a program that monitors voltages, fan speeds and temperatures in computers with hardware monitor chips. SpeedFan can even access S.M.A.R.T. info and show hard disk temperatures. SpeedFan supports SCSI disks too. SpeedFan can even change the FSB on some hardware (but this should be considered a bonus feature). SpeedFan can access digital temperature sensors and can change fan speeds accordingly, thus reducing noise. SpeedFan works fine with Windows 9x, ME, NT, 2000, 2003, XP, Vista, Windows 7, 2008, Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012. It works with Windows 64 bit too.
