Resurrect a Shuttle SD30G2?

I have a dead Shuttle SD30G2.

»us.shuttle.com/barebone/Models/sd30g2b.html

About a year ago the power supply died, and what with moving house, I have just left it be.

Casualties are the motherboard and power supply.

Is there any financially responsible way to bring this back to life? I like the form factor, and it seems a shame to scrap such relatively new (viewed through my rose tinted glasses) ram/processor.

Note that I would like to avoid an overly noisy powersupply.

Suggestions?

I have a couple stacks of those with bad mobos and good PSUs if you want a direct replace.

Are they known for killing mobos?

I wouldn't mind picking up a good used power supply, but if mobos are that hard to come by...

Anyone have more thoughts?

Any substitute mobos that can work in here?

Shuttle uses a couple of power supplies for their cases, a few of which are proprietary due to space constraints. I have a socket 775 shuttle that's gathering dust simply because the power supplies aren't particularly cheap, but are relatively cheaply made.

We were running them in fairly tight spaces without great AC. The generations of Shuttles we were using were in the era of cheap chinese components. Plus these were run 24x7 as processing machines, so I wouldn't be surprised if we just stressed them out.

Mostly it's just a few burst caps. They aren't that hard to repair otherwise.

I have a Shuttle ST61G4 with a bad mobo. I paid for a replacement power supply, but it turns out the mobo is broken instead/as well. AFAIK, there are no substitute mobos available.
