The desoldered devices on which you can recognize the mfr's logo - possibly Shindengen - and most of the mfr's P/N, S?S2525L, are dual rectifiers. The devices that are "extra well done" are the MOSFETs. I'll bet the smell was delightful ...

Power Supplies should be boring: No loud noises, no bright flashes, and no bad smells.

There is no right.
