Power Supply Caps

Looking for 10000uf 63v caps for the Kraken, max of 40mm height, 30mm diameter. Any recommendations?

I'd avoid Ebay items from China and the far east. :wink:

How about these ?

That's a tight physical spec for a decent low-ESR PSU cap...

£5.35 ex VAT (but 35mm in diameter)http://uk.farnell.com/epcos/b41231b8109 ... dp/2284051

or

£4.95 ex VAT (but 45mm in height) http://uk.farnell.com/illinois-capacito ... 0000uf+63v


Farnell have absolutely no electrolytics at 30x40x10000ufx63V - they have some at 50V and below...

RS and Rapid don't have any either. The closest I found was from DigiKey (or Mouser or Newark) at 30mmx42mm - http://www.digikey.co.uk/product-detail ... ND/4465727

Ah, just had another look, the caps fitted are actually 35v surprisingly, given working voltage is 27v, so 40v caps would be fine given these 35v caps have lasted 25 years.

Thanks Phil, 35mm diameter won't fit though.

Thanks for looking chaps, if I go with 40v, Hi Fi Collective have some Mundorfs that would fit.
