But it's a Yate Loon, so it's probably still okay if you disassemble it and clean the bearing (I would certainly save it ).

And that's only if you ignore the massive ripple and noise that would be present on the output at that power level. With a single cap per rail, good luck trying to get more than 150 Watts out, if even that much (though the design can impact that a little... but in a cheapo PSU, I doubt it).
