Hi Aris.. like your reviews..

small question. I noticed the Bulk/hold up caps get higher with wattage. can you explain how this impacts a general PSU?

for example/off topic, I have a 5 year old 550w G2 and it has a 400v 470uf cap. Just purchased a 550w g3 and the cap is lower capacity @ 400v 390uf.

Does this mean anything or am I overthinking it? is the 550w g2 better than "base" spec? I understand leakage can occur over time, I'm just not sure if its a downgrade or upgrade in specific areas.

thank you.
