Default Re: HiPro HP-P3017F3 rev:03 [Dell H057N] - capacitor repair

The old HiPro 250W PPFC units for Dell were rock solid, once their Asiacon and similar caps were recapped. I have a few running fine after ~15-17 years. One key cap is a primary side 47uF or 100uF cap in the +5Vsb flyback converter - I used NCC LXA in some recaps there.

I also replaced the OEM ADDA fans with Minebea/NMB ball-bearing fans in a few - not really needed, just additional insurance.
