Pretty much ... as hamei said, he's been running his Fuel (which has the same problem) for two years without an issue

Heh, I wouldn't do that in your case as you're entitled [skip]So far my Fuel hasn't exhibited this problem (fingers crossed) ...

When my Fuel began flooding me with warning messages about the +5V line exceeding 5.5V, I checked the voltage with a precision voltmeter and found it was absolutely true.

Precisely what updates have you in mind?
Now, is there anyone knowing (a) how to repair it (this info is available for the PSU of the Indy...), or (b) where to get another?
The only supplier I know of asks 550 US$ from a new one - more than I paid for the whole thing.
