the 680uf caps sound small, if you can fit them in the case then consider 1000uf panasonic FS series.

if this is what i think it is then do a search on this forum - the big cap is tricky because of limited case height.
Is that the same with newer PC psu's (which are LLC, DC-DC) as well - no need for low esr for the big bulk cap?

There is still quite abit of space for height on the 680uf caps but not diameter. The big cap still has space for height and looks smaller compared to the silkscreen marking.
