So, I want to start a new project. I want to re-cap a CX600. I have a CX600 non-M circa 2012-2013 sitting around. These are not bad PSUs. They actually perform quite well, but as we all know and see all too frequently, the capacitor selection is not great and causes them to suffer from having a shorter lifespan and MAYBE slightly less performance than otherwise.
This seems like a good base for the project. A decently well build and performing unit that is simply help back by capacitor selection.
I have the necessary equipment and experience to do this, that is not an issue. I am no stranger to soldering or working with electronics.
What I need help with is which caps specifically need to be replaced and which ones to replace them with.
I have sent Orion a PM as he is VERY knowledgeable about all this but he is not here too frequently so I'm looking for any help from anyone who knows what they are talking about.
I'm assuming I want to replace the primary, and the majority of the secondary caps.
I can buy from DigiKey or Mouser.
