Default Recapping Article is Up

Just thought I would post a quick message saying that the recapping article is live - we're still working on getting it to the front page, but it's up and available for all to see now. Went over it a couple more times today and there are no mistakes that I can find.

Enjoy!

I was not expecting my NEO to be worse when I got it back{ripple anyhow}
I hope the ripple will not effect the 8+ HD's it will soon be powering

At least I won't have to worry about the "Fuhjyyu Complex"
To tell you the truth OW, I think your article makes me not want to do a recap anytime soon
Excellent job, Oh and by the way, that NEO is more then a couple of months old, more like years
Thank you very much OW, I feel honored to have my PSU violated by the master himself, Oklahoma Wolf

OKW: You need to FTP into the site and delete the pictures that are not used in the article.

I woke up this morning to another overage email. But this time it was file space and not traffic. I don't think there are a total of 106 photos in that article.

It'll get on the front page once I figure out how to categorize the articles within the article category, "DIY, troubleshooting, etc."

Until then, you all are welcome to share the link with friends.

Will do... forgot about the unused pics

40mV ripple on the 12v and 25mV on the 5v is not going to kill hard drives, CAD

CAD: In case it wasn't already made clear, the V/Div on those Oscope screenshots is .01V and not the .05 I usually use in the PSU reviews.

Thanks for the effort OKW & jonny. I was suprised at the results.
I PMed the article to willawake and he had the same thing happen when he recapped as PSU with Rubycon MCZs.

I was surprised too, but figured there had to be some reason they went with the likes of Fuhjyyu or OST. The engineers at both OEM's do know what they're doing after all... it's just the heat they're not always taking into account.

Yeah..With Fuhjyyu caps it's not a matter of IF but WHEN are they going to fail. Anything at or above 45C and they are headed for their knees.
