At least the capacitors that came with the PSU were OK to begin with, rather than fakes, pieces of wire.

But I agree, I replace the lot too.

What brand of caps were these?

So because they fail in a home environment, they are bad?. Don't you just have a oem psu, like most of the psu's are?.....It's an average ok cap and not cheap or something. And what is your knowledge about electronics in general? Build and refurbished a lot?

Yes, a home environment is not very stressful. If they can't handle that, they're pretty bad.
