CCTV Server Power Supply Croaked

My HA server's power supply died back in March and the CCTV server's power supply died yesterday. It wasn't even 2 years old (the supply started off in the kitchen PC which was sporadically used. It wasn't used 24x7 until the CCTV server was created less than a year ago. Very disappointing. I've installed my backup ATX power supply, which has an intake fan over the CPU. The old supply didn't and rarely turned on its fan. It was a very quiet server, with just a slow case fan running. You can see the CPU temp is dramatically lower with the backup supply. The D201GLY2 got pretty hot at times, but was within specs. Now I need to hunt for a new 80Plus power supply.
