Thanks ichiban, that's the one - full of good info.

The capacitor thread is called "best electrolytic capacitors" and last post was may 20th and there was another one talking specifically about 10,000uF caps but can't find it myself, sorry - perhaps someone can assist?

Default How does this look for part placement?

I plan on mounting a third sink for a back plate, but you get the general idea. I was thinking the thick plate in the front would be a nice mount for the heavy toroid.

Thanks,
Everett

I wonder if the smoothing caps will run cooler if the PSU is turned upside down to place the caps in contact with the perforated bottom plate?

Are they really at risk for running that hot? I plan on using 50V caps in case that matters.

It would probably stop the heat from rising and make the caps run hotter.

assuming that the top plate is not solid and there is a vent somewhere the convection upwards from the bottom though the holes will not be insignificant... I doubt that mounting the caps upside down would have any benefit compared to the work involved in doing it.

If the caps are getting hot from passing energy, maybe the voltage rating is too small

In a similar way, jackies & umut, the thread of "the best 10,000uF capacitor ..." has good discussion of the properties of various caps - a whole lot of good info there, better than I can do.

OK, i see which thread !
