I have to say, I like most of the innards of this power supply, it's a shame though that they had to use junky secondary caps. Ok, fine, you want to put CapXon on the primaries, I can live with that. But there's no reason to use Teapo and Fcon on the secondaries other to ensure that the power supply will eventually fail after a few years.

Also, can you post pics of the underside next time?

That's why it comes with so short warranty.
