[Build Log] Budget Low-power 2700k file/media storage server (formerly for Folding). - Page 5

Talked to phaedrus. the OCZ PSU was too complicated to make attempting to fix it worthwhile.
Ended up going with a new Seasonic S12II 520W 80+bronze unit.
got it and my replacement motherboard yesterday.

The motherboard is definitely a refurbished board, proof:

luckily that lead appears to be for the fan header.
the system is up and running, folding again at 4.9GHz

Well i just found out that my replacement motherboard cooked itself out just like the first one. not sure what caused it but im not going through this anymore.
After spending much more than i originally planned on this rig and getting nothing but headaches out of it i have decided to stop folding for the time being. i will continue to use the rig as a storage an media server until i decide what use bests suits me.
If it were possible i would buy a new motherboard (probably something other than ASRock) and continue folding, but with summer coming up I would never be able to keep it cool enough to do me any good. with my new main rig build and other circumstances in life i just cannot do anything right now. the rig still runs at stock so i dont really have to replace anything, it wont boot up at 4.9 so i just cant do proper folding on it anymore.
