    Little confused; I thought the pad was flat, so even if it cracks it still separates the heatsink and diode.

    20:20 says each capacitor is 200V 330 μF

    22:10 says they are in series to give 400V and 330 μF, but the combined capacitance should be half that.


    That said, these are still wonderful videos,...

    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.
