comment How many watts do case fans generally use?
@Cees Timmerman Indeed! That's 18 W per fan. Multiple fans and optimistically rated power supply can produce very interesting results, especially of the rest of the computer is hungry as well.

comment I have to cycle my LCD monitor's power on and off to get it to stay on
@Sampo Sarrala Anyway, my point is that learning how to solder just in order to save money on capacitor repair is false economy. On the other hand, if someone is already in electronics, then it's not as problematic because the basic foundations will already be there.

@Sampo Sarrala Then we have the problem of iron being fit for the job of working with the capacitor: Too powerful and non-temperature controlled as well as too weak can result in damaged PCB. Next, there's the knowledge needed to pick and install a replacement capacitor. Again, getting a capacitor from eBay or similar source can be problematic and it takes some experience to find a reliable distributor of safe capacitors.

@Sampo Sarrala I wholeheartedly disagree with such comment. I don't think it's safe for someone who doesn't already have experience using soldering iron to attempt to replace capacitors. First problem is the iron itself. A beginner won't be able to see difference between dx.com junk that will catch on fire and dx.com junk that won't catch on fire. Next, there's some training that's needed in order to be able to actually desolder a capacitor from a PCB without damaging the PCB itself. Lifted traces aren't going to make repair any easier.
