The LED hole is small enough for a drill.

The number of rated hours for a capacitor are estimated by it operating at its maximum rated temperature. In the case of C11 & C12, it's 105C.

As you decrease the ambient operating temperature from its maximum, however, the estimated life skyrockets in the number of hours.

So in the case of C11 & C12 in the datasheet it says,
"105C 2000Hrs at rated voltage"

But according to this calculator:
Capacitor Life Calculators | Electrolytic | Film | Ceramic | Illinois Capacitor
Using the polymer type, the estimated life hours at say, 70F would be 78,237,507 hours!

So Woodyluvr, I think you should be totally fine leaving it running 247
Awesome! Thank you for this info! You had me slightly concerned there but I kept coming back to the original end-use of this converter (medical grade equipment) and thought it HAD TO BE longer than that. Very happy that it is!

With the giant heat sink attached it is just barely warm to the touch... far cooler than say my INTEL KABY LAKE PENTIUM CPU which is not even 65 C. So I say it is running well under 60 C.
timbre me ears
