I actually choosed a low ESR ELNA 105 degrees Celsius (only replaced one position with them) from the RJH series so I think it will be just fine. But thank you for being observant

I know, but they shouldn't. It saves about 50c on the manufacturing cost. If they want 50c extra profit, make the PSU 50c extra and I'll be more than happy to pay for it.

PCBONEZ had this argument with Antec. The upshot was, that there is absoloutely zero excuse whatsoever to use bad caps in ANY power supply, even a $20 one.

Ok, good. I didn't know that Elna made low ESR high temp caps.
