Default Re: Dell Optiplex GX620 with Oozing Rubycon caps

The OP specified that it is a tower, which sounds like a mid tower case to me, not a SFF or slim (thin) desktop.

Donít you mean cook?

And maybe see if you can add an extra fan in the system or otherwise optimize the cooling.
Or to optimize the cooking?

Just giving you a hard time. Not trying to make fun of you.

Iíd say what accounts for the failures is that Rubycon MCZ simply donít handle heat well, and Chemi-con KZJ are unstable even on the shelf.
