I'm not saying that failures earlier than that are impossible, but I haven't found it to be overly common (except in cheap PSUs where they run hot and are overtaxed). On well designed, cooler running PSUs, I've only ever seen maybe a dozen rectifier and transistor failures vs hundreds of units with bad caps.
