Looks like it's time for some class action suits - SOmeone must be aware of this somewhere - and someone should be held accoutnable - Can't ANTEC & other reputable companies know the shit they are using in their hardware ?

Fuhjyyu are, except maybe for GSC, the worsest crap there it.
You are not the only one to say that.

Get this : That rig ran 24/7 folding , as well as being my primary gaming rig.

Luck might have been a part of it , but I'm not kidding about it having good cooling.I'd be surprized if any part of that psu ever went above about 30c.

Asus P5P800, all these caps were hidden under the HSF. All the more reason to pull the HSF on older systems when there is instability.









Not caps, but impressive none the less! Braineater ought to like these!

This one fried...



Then this one poured out smoke in front of my face... Pretty no? Never seen one of the big filter caps in a PSU swell, leak and pop like that... funny stuff.

Nice CAPS (captures ?) :) Anyways, I am surprised to see this - I have so much electronics including old stuff here I can open a store LOL I have had old stuff run 24/7 for over 10 years and not a single bulging, and they did have some known crap - however I always used the best PSU I could get and power is well regulated and very stable here, never have I seen this. I have come across burnt resistors on some other electronics board but not caps.

I know a while ago there was a volume of caps circulating on the market and accidently purchased and used on some motherboards - this was a while back - I was not aware that the caps horror is back. As to ASUS, I have ALWAYS used ASUS and I always loved the idea that they are a step above others, of course quality control has taken a major hit, not only for ASUS but everywhere, now if there is a new batch of fake CAPS circulating, then I guess we are headed for trouble. I have built tons of systems for my own use and for friends/family and never have I come across this problem. And to see that some shitty caps find their ways in so called expensive gear, pro gear, is beyond me.... :)
