Unhappy differences between computer grade capacitors and small can capacitors

Can anyone tell me what the differences are between big computer grade capacitors and small can capacitors? They come in the same values and lifetimes. However I would have gassed that the small cans have a shorter lifetime because they have a smaller mass ergo are not able to dissipate heat as well. Iíve seen Mr. Pass use the small can capacitors in the Alpha 3 and the X250. All of his other amplifiers use the big computer grade capacitors.
