Ok, so the next thing to do is to check those in the manual and see what it says. Then let us know. there may be a fix for this

3 is power on north bridge initialization

10 is not in the manaul

19 is early south bridge initialization

15 ( not sure if it is 15) is early north bridge initialization

Then it loops.

So, that makes sense according to early diagnosis. The breach of the pcb coating, in that area, wouldve disturbed power to north and/or southbridge. Doesnt look good my friend. Put it back to stock and send it to MSI. See what they say. Even if warranty time has expired they are really good about stuff like that. When they couldnt replace my 290X Lightning (2 years old) they cut me a check that was a little more than what it cost to buy a replacement (they offered me a 390x first)

I know dude. And I feel for you. Ive been there. There are few things more disappointing. Especially when something so small, and so simple causes such a major problem. I will keep my fingers crossed for you in regards to dealing with MSI. Its fairly new. And MSI is great about customer service and standing by their products. Put the board completely back to stock, take any electrical tape off that you put on, process an RMA on their site, and I would also take a copy of the receipt/invoice for the board and staple it to the RMA form. And in the "notes" section of the RMA just let them know that it wont boot, its throwing codes, and youve tried everything including clearing the CMOS. And thats it. Good luck

How would i make it stock again? I dont really know anything else that i could reset other than the cmos. It is also annoying because i was watching a vid on the x version and everything was the same instead of the bolt bit, not knowing that i needed to take it off. It didnt really help that i was tired and wanted to play the last day of the overwatch beta. Guessed i just rushed through and this happened.

They mean take the cpu off, put the cpu cover back on the socket and put it back in the box however msi likes it. I'm sure they have a list of directions / requirements.
I just don't know what anyone expects of them. It's not like its a defect for them to honor any kind of warranty.

So you damaged the traces on your motherboard installing some hardware and you blame the hardware? Fascinating.

Yup, never attempt to do something with any need for precision when you are rushed or tired. Plus you should always read the directions carefully as boring as it may be.

Good news! I did get a free mobo from msi, just had to send mine back. I installed everything correctly and it is so good. Max about 46 on games. And so silent. Though i did cut a bit of the anti static bag into washers to make sure they wouldnt scratch this time. But all is good.
Now i just need to get a 1080 smile.gif
