It's starting to look like it may have been a bad batch of NCC 420V 330uF caps, since those are being made in Malaysia instead of Japan right now. This should only affect the X560, X660, and AX650 it's looking like. But I still want people to check to be sure.

Hi Phaedrus2129,

I am not sure to which reference do you mean "some units are starting to show signs"... This photo to which you refer was taken by our service center in Germany and forwarded to our end customer to discuss his RMA status.

To the best of my knowledge, this is a one-off situation here in EU and we have not seen any spike or abnormal quantities in RMA for the X-560 or for that matter, the X series as a whole.

I am not sure if this ties in with the situation you mention about China, nevertheless, the failed power supply is already on it's way back to our QA department in Taiwan for Failure Analysis. We are fairly certain this is not a design flaw and all evidence points to either a faulty capacitor or thermister.

If you have any questions over this matter, you can send a PM or contact me via this thread.

Thank you.

What power supply do you have? SS-560KM running on UK 230v, but the input voltage on this street is unusually high, normally hovering just below the upper limit - 246v right now.

How long have you had your PSU? November 2010. I got it soon after they were released.

What fan mode do you run it in (if applicable)? It never runs hot enough, or on enough load, to start the fan.

What are your system specs? The entire PC pulls less than about 100 watts from the wall 99% of the time: E8400, 8GB, 2x SSD, Adaptec 3405 RAID controller, 2x 2.5" HDD, 2x 3.5" HDD, basic ATI HD4550.

Are your primary caps bulging? No. None are.

If any PSU were going to get bulging caps, it would be this one. It has been running 24/7 since I bought it 10 months ago. My flat gets very hot in summer - it hits 28C ambient on the warmest days. Combine that with the PSU fan not being on most (all?) of the time, I suspect that this is close to the worst-case scenario for identifying if this is a systematic problem with this model.

My PC has always been hooked up to a nice APC UPS, and has been powered off maybe 3 days in total due to mainly one lengthy power outage.

None of the caps in mine have any issues at all, and I expect that the problem in the original post is very much a one-off.

... however, I have just now put a slow fan on it It's running slow enough to not cause the PSU fan to move, but it provides a very slight air flow. Ideally it should, like the newer model(s), have a switch to control whether to have the fan always-on. I don't mind the noise.

Not bad for a first post. Welcome to OCN.
