It's over 10 years old. Average life span is taken into consideration when they gave that thing it's warranty. At the very least, the fan will die soon. I'd replace it.

At the end of the day, the pricing is up to the retailer. Newegg's pricing is whack. Unfortunately, if they jack up a price and the product continues to sell well at that price, then they have no...

Well, that's why I added "there's still some really cheap crap" caveat in there.

I will say, in reality, since the Japanese caps are now mostly not Japanese, their prices have gone down. On the...

The problem with the "SFX-L" is that you really don't save that much space over an ATX.

Also, a case made to fit an SFX PSU often doesn't have the room to fit the SFX-L.

It's true.

Putting all Japanese brand caps in a PSU is "safe marketing". About five years ago or so, I was confronted by an engineer when, in a review, I had said something bad about Teapo...

Yep. Agreeing with above here. Wolf and I both use hot air and have the same station. It's made by Aoyue.

Mine's pretty cheap in that it doesn't have a readout with actual iron/air temp. Just...

You're using a PSU that has a 115V/230V switch?

Take the PSU out. Throw it in the garbage. Buy a new PSU.

But to answer your question... nothing will happen to the DC side of things because...

No. The settings only "stick" as long as AC is applied since the MCU doesn't have an EEPROM. It relies on getting constant AC power to maintain settings.

Easy to check. Set a DMM to continuity, put one probe on a +12V pin of the EPS12V connector and the other probe on a +12V pin in the PCIe slot.

Both.

I personally would run the PSU fan up. I've just found that fan down the PSU that heat rises into the PCB. If it's mounted fan up, you still...

In the early 90's there weren't many choices for enthusiast PSUs. Enermax was one of them. Exploding Antecs was another (Fuhjyyu caps). I think it's safe to say that we've come a long way. ;)

You mean the PSU has two rails.
