Yeah, those were pretty awesome units too. I own a few myself. Rock-solid performance indeed. I actually haven't recapped mine yet, and somehow the original Asiacon caps are still in spec... or were when last checked a few years ago. Will probably recap them eventually.

I think the primary "startup" cap in those was a 47 uF, 50V. Fixed one a long time ago with a shorted diode fore the primary auxiliary rail and replaced that cap while at it too... actually, here is the post with that PSU, posted 10 years ago!

And yes, it's still working.
