Overclocking disaster (939 4400+ with asrock 939dual-vsta) - Page 2

Remove the case ON/OFF moldex from the MB. Tap the 2 terminals with a metal object.
That will bypass the case on/off switch and rule out that it's defective.

BTW, no 939 MB is DDR500 rated, the "Standard" highest known advertised speed is DDR400. Most MBs can excede DDR600 speeds so no worrys there.

I tried to boot the motherboard with a second case (which works with another motherboard), but it still didn't boot. I also tried the boot a different motherboard with the first case and it worked. Everything is plugged correctly.

I removed everything and took the motherboard out, looked at it and didn't easily notice anything suspicious. But, looking carefully near to the memory slots, I noticed something made out of metal which seemed to be... abnormal, I'm not sure if that's what a fried motherboard part looks like, I didn't find any close-up picture to compare this part of the motherboard. I took a high-res picture, look next to the second blue memory slot.

So far, it seems like the power supply fried the motherboard after self-destructing itself

I believe it's best to just RMA both the motherboard and the power supply... thanks anyway to all of you

Are you talking about that square thing directly to the right of the top blue RAM slot? I can't tell what that's supposed to be or what it's supposed to look like. I think if it was burned you could smell it.

Yes, that part seems broken, whatever it's supposed to be...

A new motherboard will fix the problem, I'll just try not to let this happen again...

There seems to be a lot of people with 4000+ / 4200+ / 4400+ with this motherboard running at ~2700mhz with DDR500 or even higher. I still don't know what happened in my case... Perhaps my settings were alright and the power supply was defective?

Could be simply been a defective part, time for an RMA, send along the picture with the email request and the defect circled.
