    I think we are in agreement.

    The other pc will have to wait a month or two, maybe I'll get a better PSU for it then.
    You should know that a PSU with failed caps will have much higher ripple then normal, which could kill your hardware after some time because the stress on the components will be much higher.

    I buy only 1 now because there's a big chance it will not get to me before I have to give it away, so if I order 2 I'll have to keep the pc and send it afterwards.
    In case it doesn't come in time I'll use it for the i5 and order another PSU to the new address. In this case should I just take out the delux altogether, until the new PSU arrives?

    Why do we keep going round and round in these circles?
    Like i said I'm not confident in my skills with the soldering iron, I don't live in a city, I have no capacitors and ordering them online is to expensive. So not an option.

    LOL spent to much time replying.

    Didn't mean any offense; it takes all sorts to make the world go round.

    If you want to be 100% sure the PC survives then yes that's the best way.

    They sent me the wrong PSU, FSP Hyper M85+ 650W.
    Is this a good PSU? Sending it back will be a pain in the ass.

    Looking at the pictures from the outside and the specs it looks to be a Hyper M with DC-DC. Which is a bit worse then Hexa 85+. I can't find an internal picture of the PSU.

    If sending it back isn't really an option, then maybe ask for some money back, because they send you a worse power supply and geek the PSU. But they didn't send you a really bad one at least, so you can use it.

    Not sure it would work in Romania, but what I do here in the US is keep a list of decent power supplies, some of which are less popular but reviewed well. I keep them plugged into an eBay search. If I spot one cheap on a buy it now I grab it.

    In the US you have Newegg which has great deals all of the time.
