motherboard catching on fire?

post #1 of 49
Thread Starter 
ok i just put a new watercooling system on my computer after running it on stock cooling for about a year no overclocks or anything and worked perfectly before this on my old processor being a dumbass i somehow bent about 3 pins on the side trying to reseat it on the mobo and had to order a new one
the new one is in it now and im curently typing from it my only problem is that it looks like one of the chips idk what it is next to choke 4 decided to get insanely hot and shut the computer off confused.gif so i let it sit until the chip cooled back off and then i started the computer back up well when i did the chip aparently decided to flare for two seconds and then go out and now has a small burned spot on it idk what happened but the computer still works like normal any ideas what the hell happened??
ill post pics in a sec

Looks like a mosfet blew to me. Can't make heads or tails of what you wrote, though.

sorry about the confusing writting lol i started the computer and after 5 minutes of prime 95 to temp test on stock voltages and clock speed it shut off with no bsod or anything and my power led was flashing so i gave it 5 minutes then restarted it and when i did that chip in the picture half way caught on fire like a spike or something then went back out and the computer shut down again so i gave it another 5 minutes and now the computer works fine no weird side effects or anything

Your board has no mosfet cooling, and with the 125W thuban chips it was relying on your previous air cooling setup(stock cooling or down facing fan I'm guessing) to keep cool. That board was not meant to push that much voltage so it blew. I'm surprised its still running. You might want to make sure you have a fan blowing on that mosfet before it gets worse or something else blows.

Those 4+1 boards were never meant to run 125W processors, especially without active mosfet cooling. You'll want a board with 8 or more mosfets to help spread the heat out, even with active cooling it probably will have an issue eventually.

EDIT: Please read through these threads so you know I'm not BSing you. tongue.gif

+1 for longest run on sentence i've seen in the forums to-date. NICEJOB smile.gif

EDIT:
The original post was actually longer by about 70 words! However you managed to sneak some punctuation in at the end. Call me a troll, but I need at least 1 period per 40 words lol.

well aparently these mobos that mister micro center dude sold me are turds. the mosfets like to explode around 1.4 volts which was the stock voltage. i backed it down to about 1.28 and im gonna just save some money up and upgrade so i can actually use my water coling system }frown.gif im angry now. any recommendations for good boards?

That board won't handle your CPU at bone stock, let alone overclocked. It's a low quality 4 phase MSI board, they're KNOWN for VRM failures with even a quad core at stock.

Replace the board with a proper board and you'll be fine. Do it soon before it catches fire.
