Looks to be 6.3V, 560uF according to this PDF [synthrotek.com].

Not sure what F60M means.... manuf part # or something?

Also measure it physically - that site I linked has it at 6x8mm. PRetty big IMHO. IS this for a TV or something?

It's for a Supermicro motherboard. That size could be correct. Wish I knew what the F60M means. Other caps on the same board have a different number.

Most likely the F60M is just part of the capacitor mfg's part number if you could find their datasheet it would be explained. Here's another datasheet as an example: http://nichicon-us.com/english/pr.../e-rs8.pdf

Capacitors do come in different sizes and shapes and mounting configurations. Most if not all capacitors of this type have a 20% tolerance, tolerance code could be the M. ESR (equiv. series resistance) of capacitors does vary and depending on the circuit a low ESR cap can be very important.

Can't tell from your pic if you've got a through hole or surface mount part.
Here's a selection of parts from digikey that are close to the one you have (copy/paste).
