Have a close look at every part with a touch to help with lighting. While you may be lucky that it starts but It could damage other parts.

Had exactly the same issue, blew all my caps on the board. Tested my PSU and was all okay. I heard the pop and all it done was the power cycle and stop. Took my board and got it replaced... Must be a common thing
boards. Got it replace under warranty....

Hi all,

I have just fitted this board into my server but the onboard LAN is not detected. I have a separate PCI-e Intel NIC because I need 3 NIC ports.
