Yup. If it has OST caps and a sleeve bearing fan, then replace it. If it does actually have Japanese caps with a 2BB fan, then it should be fine for another 10 years.

These days, reliable and HDD do not belong in the same sentence. I see lots of failures from all brands.

About the only series I haven't yet seen a failure from is a WD Caviar Black, but they...

I didn't have a hot air gun at that point. The soldering iron was all I had, so that's all I used. It worked perfectly, and the PSU is still in service to this day. If I was doing it today though,...

Nope. I've redone ATX cables with just a plain old temperature controlled 60W station a few times before. It takes a while to get things hot enough, but I got there. I did it on my Delta GPS-300AP...

It may have other problems, then. I only suggested the caps because it's common on an 8 year old PSU (unless it came with Japanese parts).

Complete and utter rubbish, especially if the PSU has 100% Japanese caps. The caps aging will make the ripple worse (and possibly cause it to go out of spec after a few years), but it will NOT affect...

That's not a bad deal for the price, and 430W is probably enough. Depending on your budget, though, there are better 430 and 450W PSUs out there.

The label on this one says otherwise. The platform does support dual rails, but they are usually joined on the S12G and G-series retail units.

Being a single rail DC-DC converted unit, OCP and OPP are exactly the same thing, since nearly all of the power comes from the same rail.

With that said, however, the S12G based PSUs I've...

That one would do fine.

btw, if you had Fuhjyyu or JunFu in a Delta, then some idiot has recapped it with them before. Delta was never stupid enough to use either of them. They do use LTEC, but...

Yup. Always completely ignore the customer reviews. Most who are happy don't write reviews.

The CX430 would probably work since that PC isn't particularly demanding, but bear in mind that most Socket A PCs draw most of their current from the 5V rail, whereas all modern PSUs have most of...

$5? You could just about do it with entirely Japanese caps for that (save for maybe the APFC cap)

BTW, how is this not shorting on the solder side? :eek:

I don't think either of those is better than the other. Either will be fine for a years usage, so I would just go with whichever is cheaper.

I'm not surprised. The strider essentials aren't very good (junk capacitors and fan, out of spec ripple from day 1)

No. With your setup, a 1600W PSU will not last longer than a good 850W unit with your setup. You won't really shorten a PSU's life much unless you run it at nearly full power all the time, which...

Yes. 600W is enough for any single GPU configuration. Even 450W would probably be enough.

105C is theoretically better, but 85*C is OK as long as you can keep it cool (which is dead easy on 220/230VAC). Personally, I've never seen an APFC cap fail before, but I've seen more failed...

TBH, I would argue that the use of an 85*C Japanese cap on the APFC is much, much less of an issue than the use of Teapo on the secondary side.
