thanks for the hint. I read through this fairly long thread - the
baseline seems to be: Replace the caps.

One seems to behave quite well (compared to the specs given here: http://www.spectratime.com/uploads/documents/isource/iSource_LPFRS%20Spec.pdf) - short term stability specs are met), the other one shows quite some phase ripple (appx. 1 ns RMS with a frequency around 0.007 Hz) which spoils ADEV in the 60 - 200s range, very similiar to the typical GPSDO bump. Long term stabilty is OK.
