From 2005-2008 Antec came out with newer PSU models like the Earthwatts, Truepower and Basiq. These power supplies used a mix of junk capacitors from brands like OST, Teapo, and United Chemi-Con. These capacitors had the same problem as Fuhjyyu and would at most last about a year before they blew their tops.
I'm curious about if you are just talking about their mid-range and budget offerings, or does that include the higher-end models of the era? My Antec Truepower Quattro 1000w from ~2007, which IIRC shared the same overall Enhance OEM design as it's 850w counterpart, has been going strong to this day. It has not been babied either, having spent most of it's life powering power-hungry computers that used either Quad-Crossfire or Triple-SLI (which it still does currently) along with a highly overclocked CPU.
