I have used a 10uf first cap with 5R4 without any issues, but...

what comes after the first cap is important. If you go 10uf to a 10 ohm resistor to a 100uf cap it will blow up. You need to have an adequate choke or resistor after the cap. PSUII can give you some kind of indication of acceptable loading.
