Autopsy in: motherboard is fried.

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Asus P8-P67 Pro Rev 3.0, claimed dead by incineration on January 12th, 2012, approximately 3 hours before my birthday... it was a great motherboard. All i did was switch the PSU, nothing else. Then bam--burning smell, no display yet fans working, tested it with different PSU, so not the PSU problem. I'll get over it. smile.gif

I'm still a newbie to fixing/upgrading PCs. If I plan on acquiring GPUs that support 3.0 PCI thing (sorry, don't know the name), which motherboard would you suggest? (somewhere at LEAST on the level of my previous motherboard). Cmon friends.. help a desperate fellow here..

I don't think I understand how your mobo fried by changing the PSU.

possibly a bad connection on either the 24 pin or the 8 pin if they are not seated 100% it will increase resistance and generate more heat causing it to either melt or flame up.

And if they are seated 100% dust dirt any foreign debris will also cause this.

I'd stick with ASUS. Grab a Z68 GEN3 board to fully support PCI-E 3.0. For a cheaper alternative you could try ASUS's little brother, Asrock

Why did you just recommend 2 incompatible motherboards? One with a different socket, and the other is an AMD motherboard.

He needs an Intel board, specifically LGA1155.

The motheboard is usually the faulty one if the fans run but the display won't work.

Here's the thread that the OP started about this whole issue: http://www.overclock.net/t/1198620/bought-a-new-corsair-650txv2-doa

Huh? What are you talking about with diferent socket?

edit: Nvm, didn't read carefully like a noob. For the second one (AMD), I meant this (Intel) http://www.amazon.com/Gigabyte-Intel-DDR3-Motherboards-GA-Z68X-UD3H-B3/dp/B00518M74I/ref=sr_1_1?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1326435513&sr=1-1

I'll try that when I get back home... last solution that I know of.

Well, I'd welcome any other possible solution before finally concluding there's nothing left to do.
