Was in another thread today where the issue of PSUs losing power over time came up. I am well aware that electronic parts (especially electrolytic caps) can degrade over time and become out of spec. However, I'm curious to know if this actually results in a steady and measurable loss in power output over time. By this I mean within the reasonable lifespan of a PSU. Sure, I would expect a 20yr old PSU to lose power, but that's not really relevant. I was unable to find any hard proof of this and I'm wondering if anyone has hard data available or would be willing to continuously measure the output of their PSU over time.
