Wow, I'll think hard about Antec next PSU....

As to the damaged area, judging by the huge number of power resistors in parallel there, it almost has to be overcurrent protection. I can't think of anything else that would use that kind of high power resistor. Damage is probably caused by cold solder joint on the resistors.

This PSU was designed and manufactured by Delta Electronics and we've already addressed this issue thru them.
