Nothing, it actually died while I was in the middle of a game.

But now that I think about it, it is spider season and I have already seen quite a few, including one crawling around my comp, so to be quite honest, I wont be surprised one bit if I find a deep fried spidey somewhere.

Well I tested my psu on another computer and it worked just fine, I couldnt find anything visually wrong with it and my psu and mobo didnt smell like something fried.

Although, before I boxed it up to RMA, I tested it outside the case and it wouldnt even turn on and stay on, the fans would spool up and it would display FF for about a second and then shut itself off.

Another weird thing, when I first turn the psu on, I get the blue AND the orange light, then once I turned it on(and then it turned itself off) it only had the blue, either way something is screwed.

Knowing my luck, when i get my psu(RMA'ing for the hell of it) as well as my mobo and I get everything hooked up, only then will I know if anything else was friend(other comp is DDR), but I should definately test my video cards.

Try firing up the motherboard with no components in/ connected to it. In good condition, the board should stay on although it will not boot. At least you can single out a part this way.

Production 03 board

Vdroop report:

1.35000 set in bios, 1.304 real = 0.046 vdroop. better than my last board! it was .054 on that sucker

had a lockup just now but I was running 4.28ghz on 1.304 volts - last stable setting was @ 1.314 volts

Also Im going to try get my "CPU FSB" and NB volts down to conserve on heat

freeroller you should try the pencil mod, I did it on mine and I actually have a very slight REVERSE vdroop! I go from 1.224v idle to 1.232v load. It also made the bios come much closer to my voltage selection. I actually did it with the board running and watched the voltage go to just where i wanted it. I even tested erasing it, and its fully removable.
