    Default Andyson N500 Titanium PSU Review@ Anandtech

    http://www.anandtech.com/show/9663/t...ium-psu-review


    ......................... but we also spotted Toshin Kogyo (TK) products among them. TK may not be a very popular brand with computer PSU manufacturers but it is a reputable Japanese company.

    Are they quality caps?

    As far as I know, probably they're not in the same league of Nichicon and the likes.

    For some reason anandtech's ripple numbers always seem to be higher than other sites. Basically double.

    Take for example the Corsair RM1000x

    12V ripple at 100%

    anandtech 28mV
    Tweaktown 14mV
    Kitguru 15mV

    5V at 100%

    andtech 20mV
    kitguru 10mV


    Then today with the Andyson N500 Titanium

    52mV at 100% on the 12V
    26mV at 100% on the 5V

    obviously it isn't an apples to apples comparison, but the N700, as tested by Oklahoma Wolf, which is the same platform maxed out at 25mV on the 12V and 15mV on the 5V

    Maybe the N500 doesn't have capacitors in the cables though.

    Toshin caps are not used so often but when I see them they are usually bad in like 90 % of cases.

    Definitelly not good and here you can see that judging caps from country of origin is stupid. Man Yue/Samxon has many good lines too.

    Programmable loads can cause ripple. Also there can be problems with the small caps used for the measurement.

    As far as I know, TK caps are sourced from OST. They're not exactly rebrands, more like bespoke production runs, but still OST. Make of it what you will.
    Careful what you wish for... You just might get it.

    From what I can see, their is a pair of TK's next to the NCCs on the secondary side but they're away from any major heat sources (unless those VRMs get ungodly hot, which I doubt), and also not in a critical roll by any means, or experiencing a ton of stress from the design itself.

    It wouldn't be something to worry about in my opinion. Especially if you're in a local where Andyson (or any licensee of the design) back the product up with a proper warranty.

    As others have said, they're about on par with OST Caps which I've generally seen outlive their warranties (3 years) in many Seasonic OEM units, I don't have a ton of experience with TKs except on old Skt 939, 478, & early LGA 775 boards. On those boards, the TKs were usually fine past the boards actual useful life cycle.

    All of you use programmable loads, don't you?
