Much of yesterday spent transplanting components from the dead shuttle to the new bare bones. After some fiddling everything I've tried seems to be working again.

Of course I've got bits left over. Anyone need a unused CPU heatsink and fan? There's also the old case with working PSU and damaged motherboard. Realistically I'm not going to get around to doing anything with it in the near future.

yep. Toasted Mosfet there. And it looks like the cap beside it is about to vent as well.

I'm betting that the toasted switcher-tranny is related to the capacitor dying... I've seen this happen too after people have replaced failed mobo-electrolytics with ordinary generic electrolytics not the correct-for-switchers low-ESR ones.
