    Had a run of them blow up in CX-M's. Had to do a running change to Infineon FETs to solve the problem.

    Tried to blame CWT for the issue. Bad solder paste, etc. But... nope. Just crappy Advance Power quality.

    Seems like "When in doubt, go Infineon" always checks out!

    Wanna mail me a replacement one for a cx450m? since I can't RMA

    Just kidding, but if you really wanna, by all means

    If it hasn't died by now, it won't. They tend to arrive DOA or fail within the first week of use.

    More like I've used the DC-DC converter only, nothing else is being used... I was joking about sending me a rectifier. I'm using pieces of it (literally)

    No one needs the 100% Japan cap marketing. Just use Infineon MOSFETs only and do it like Super Flower

    But I agree. Better FETs is better than better caps.
