"Capacitor aging" is the term that got thrown around the 'net, and was at some point incorporated into the very first PSU calculators. Someone incorrectly stipulated that old and worn out caps will...

Looks pretty decent if you ask me. Strange there are no Elite caps, GW loves those (and they're not bad either).

I'd say it's serviceable even with a modern rig. Perhaps I should say especially...

That is 2-series. Xigmatek uses M-series for Tauro 700W only.
