PSU killed your board. Those older Fuhjyyu'd Antecs (ie. Antec PSUs with Fuhjyyu capacitors) were notorious for it. They do have 100% failure rates, and will kill your board every time if you don't catch them early. Personally, I've never seen one of those PSU's last longer than 3 years before the caps went bad. I caught most of them early and replaced them, but a few were boards were killed by them.

FWIW, any really well designed PSU with entirely Japanese capacitors will easily give you 10 years + of 24/7 use.
