    Nothing but the actual measured value matters in this application.

    About a hundred threads on this, bottom line never changes.
  3. Like Bongolation said, in this particular application, the actual value is pretty much the only specification that matters. (Though leakage is of arguable consideration, but you've specified a decent film-based cap, so it isn't worth worrying about.)
