    EVGA P2, T2, G2, & G3 units are all worthwhile.

    They have many more lines (G+, G1+, GQ, GD, GA, & GM) but many of them lack...

    I would replace the unit. 6 years was a good service life and it's out of warranty.

    I haven't seen specific PSUs for the new Intel Ghost Canyon NUC but that's possibly a market for a unit like this as you're powering a single board computer, a GPU, and maybe an optional M.2 PCIe SSD.
