I placed my order for the other bits as it appears that Mr Exxosdoesnt stock a recap kit... That I could see anyway... 😁

Now... How do I tell the difference between awesome caps and rubbish ones... I usually get them off ebay but I know they are usual Chinese crap...

I want this to be a rock solid machine so only the best will do!! (unless the caps are waaaaaay expensive!! 😁)

Thanks guys!

No 2512 re-cap kit yet. I've just not had time to do all the work with it all.

If you change the main output caps (normally largest after the 400V one) then it should be fine for now. Forget ebay for caps, not worth the risk. Use a reputable brand like panasonic and get them from farnell etc. Don't go for the cheapest, cheap caps can sometimes be worse spec than the ones you are taking out!

Cool... I thought as much for the ebay caps... 😁

Just to check is it the ones on the left or the ones on the right which I need to buy (from your recap guide)??

Thanks!!

Not sure which page your looking at or where ? I haven't recapped that exact PSU before so there isn't any guide to it anyway...

It's in your psu's guide... More of a mention than a guide but it has one set of caps and another set of caps... I'll just check in the psu... Was just being lazy!!

Thanks again!! 😁
