    The only thing that would worry me are the Ltec capacitors, but maybe they have got much better.

    No need for 105C bulk capacitors if there is no APFC

    Why use a double sided board if single...

    Swap pairs, just in case it is the RAM

    So long as you have the latest BIOS, I would not mess with it.

    Hadn't thought about that; but wouldn't corrosion build up an oxide layer and so stop on its own accord?

    Heat Sink anodizing

    Heat sinks tend to be anodized, but not always black.

    Is this a safety feature because the anodized layer is an insulator? as anodized coatings have a much lower thermal conductivity than aluminum.

    I still hate the idea of live heatsinks.

    Actually, I just realized that the anodized coating is an insulator, so maybe the heatsinks are not as dangerous as I at first thought.

    The super-capacitors should have no problem with the high load, although I don't know how long they last. One needs to know what one is doing as an over-voltage would destroy them; pictured is a 6...

    Well if 100W is sustained for 2 mins; 400W will be a quarter of the time or half a minute; 800W for a quarter of a minute; enough for glitches but maybe not enough time to shut down.

    Sounds like a manufacturing issue, where the thermal pad was the sort used for a CPU and not a high voltage component.

    If the fuel runs out in a plane does one blame the engine for failing to run?

    So it was not the actual diode that was failing, but the thermal pad.

    One begins to appreciate just how difficult manufacturing is and not just design.

    Take the gas cylinder on an office chair or the compressor on a car air conditioner; I continue to find it amazing that each can seal high pressure gas for years at a time.

    So it can be done.
