I think, now dont quote me, but if you were to pour water on your psu it can cause it to do nasty things.

large quantities of water, and also screwdrivers shoved in some of the holes doesnt help

Not sure on this, but dust clogging the air intake would lead to a v hot PSU which could cause failure
