    In general the lines are not independent, but I would not worry; the capacitor is a precaution.

    But you were right to ask how 25% more speed could lead to twice the power; at first it does not...

    The power goes as the speed cubed, in which case (15/12)^3 ~ 2; so double the power makes sense.

    From that page "2200μF capacitor provides stable voltage"

    Another reason might be to avoid the fans injecting noise back on the line.

    Some heat-sinks can be LIVE! as I mentioned before.



    The shutdown may be due to the CPU and not the power supply; let's say the video card causes a small under-voltage glitch that would...

    Perhaps the fan; how is yours? (I asked this earlier)



    If you know how, you can test the bridge rectifiers; a voltage surge may have damaged them. Power supplies contain lethal voltages, even...

    Does the fan turn freely?

    I am guessing that is the bridge rectifier that is getting hot; and yes, the warrantee is lost since you opened it up.

    Be careful touching stuff, some of those...

    My issue was more with the 24/7 ability than the warranty period.

    I recall a post that seemed of the opinion that a 500 W supply can deliver 500 W 24/7 for the warranty period;

    Brand names. Why?

    Corsair is sort of swashbuckling

    but names like

    Super Flower
    SeaSonic
    Andyson

    leave me a little confused; anyone know any of the history behind these names>

    I am still not convinced that a supply can really take 100% load 24/7; manufacturers would not exclude mining in the warrantee if the supply could really carry a 100% duty-cycle at full load for the...

    For a home desktop computer the usage may only be a few hours a day, perhaps a 15% duty cycle; in such a case 6 years is not a lot at all. I'm not saying the advice is bad, just that I am a bit...

    I have repaired many a monitor by just replacing capacitors in the power supply, but I don't know how common capacitor failure is these days.

    Hard drive errors

    Seagate says less than 1 non-recoverable error per 10^14 bits, but that is only 12.5 TB; Western Digital seem to have similar figures. Some enterprise drives are 1 bit in 10^15, but that still seems...
