a horrible, horrible thing happened.. :( - Page 2

ALWAYS at least TRY to RMA the stuff. Even though it was your fault, they still might replace it for you. Worth a try in my book.

PS: You might have to bend the truth a little if talking to customer service. But I am not officially condoning this by any means, of course.

I must be a lucky case because I, by mistake, pressed the AS5 syringe too hard and the AS5 went all over my 5700LE. Luckily it still worked

Condolences to your QX6700 And 680i

I don't understand how people get thermal compound on everything; I've reseated a HSF system a dozen times on multiple different motherboards and never had a problem.

I am sorry for your loss! Those were expensive parts, but it appears you have the money to replace them so at least there's that.

Yeah, when you talk to customer service, you might want to leave out the part about the AS5 being on the back

With damage like this though (where parts actually lit up into flames), a lot of companies will refuse to replace it.

well yes, first thing that came up in my head was RMA.

well i put the cpu back in my glitchy A1..and it would turn on, just wouldnt post. all it would do would do is just give me an "A0" post code. i reset the cmos, and still did the same thing.

i will try to RMA, i did leave that part out, and im hoping they can do a refund on it or something. but i just had to have replacement parts so i could get the superbeast back on his feet.
