Don't take anything for granted.

When it seems that the capacitors on your Asus A7V600 motherboard for an Athlon XP 3200 are going bad because the time that the system can stay up is getting shorter and shorter on a reverse logarithmics scale, you may be right. Since this is what happened to all those computers at work.

Or you could realize that your motherbaord has some of the best capacitors in the world built into it, and maybe you should try it out with that other power supplu, since the 400W one might be borked. Which is what it was.

Boy is my face red :-(
