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...
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.
