    Going for a fan-less supply would help limit the options.

    If you have been using a supply for say 5 hours a day every day, that would make 5 years of use just 1 24/7 and so perhaps not a lot. Then...

    Contact resistance

    I have a microwave where the thermal switch keeps tripping, but looking at how burnt the external contacts are I think it is they that are tripping the switch and not the microwave itself; so I worry...

    Memory gets soft errors from Cosmic rays; hard drives have non-recoverable errors every 10 TB or so.

    I think just Arc crashed; it was actually my Son playing the game.

    Running the latest Windows 10? (1909)

    Did you test the hard drive for bad sectors?

    Had some crashes with Arc that went away, but that could also have been recent patches that went with Arc.

    i.e. Trying is so much more important that what I might believe or not.

    It won't do that.

    There are plenty of capacitors on the mother board and in the power supply if you want to worry about those also.

    In general the lines are not independent, but I would not worry; the capacitor is a precaution.

    But you were right to ask how 25% more speed could lead to twice the power; at first it does not...

    The power goes as the speed cubed, in which case (15/12)^3 ~ 2; so double the power makes sense.

    From that page "2200μF capacitor provides stable voltage"

    Another reason might be to avoid the fans injecting noise back on the line.

    Does the fan turn freely?

    I am guessing that is the bridge rectifier that is getting hot; and yes, the warrantee is lost since you opened it up.

    Brand names. Why?

    Corsair is sort of swashbuckling

    but names like

    Super Flower
    SeaSonic
    Andyson

    leave me a little confused; anyone know any of the history behind these names>
