Yeah, the half-sized PSU's tend to burn up quickly - small fan, cramped space, poor ventilation in and out of the case of the PSU itself not to mention the computer case; they're junk, and the ones we get aren't cheap - ~$80. And unlike regular computers, our machines are subjected to high amounts of cigarette smoke, kitchen grease, dirt from outside (a barroom environment) - a bad recipe for sure...
