    Power Supply

    Hey out of curiousity, what can cause a Power Supply Unit's capacitors to blow, besides being forced to pump out more wattage than what they're rated for? Also not counting the PSU being really old? I've only had mine for a few months so i'm not worried about age

    other than what you mentioned a power feedback from a bad piece of hardware can do it.
