    Confused; what you show has asymmetric primary capacitors, what the OP has seems to have symmetric primary capacitors.

    Yes, P = I*V so operating at a higher voltage means less current and so less heating.

    The Mask is right, don't void the warrantee; one can sometimes see past the fan blades or through the grill.

    Car headlight bulbs make for a great 12V load.

    Much simpler is to inspect the secondary capacitors for any swelling of the top, even slight swelling; but at 1 year old they should still be fine.

    So long as you don't have APFC, the primary is not very taxed and so CapXon should be fine.

    As far as secondary capacitors go, if they use polymer electrolyte the brand does not matter much.

    Sorry, nope; but I wonder about feedback instabilities that your Chroma machine might not test for.

    You are concerned about

    "That's right. We see a voltage INCREASE. But why?"

    ?



    Makes sense to me, the sense wires are sensing a very low voltage (zero) and are compensating

    Sorry `bout that, my mind was off on the line of thought that maybe in the future one could avoid fans; I know, it was quite a stretch.

    But it does lead to the strange idea that two mining cards...

    Other one was about over-clocking; this one is under-clocking.

    Still wanted the cubed relation, which for me is not obvious without the steps that included the V​2 for resistive heating

    are ceramic bearings being used in some ball bearing fans? either hybrid or full ceramic.

    Conjecture:

    Perhaps you are first using up the safety margin (no voltage increase needed)

    P ~ f

    and then finding the need for more voltage?
