Gigabyte apparently has a problem with this mobo. I've heard of a previous incident when the 4pin cpu socket plug burned during a product review at www.xbitlabs.com last year. They lowered the rating on the mobo because of the burning. The review is still online in their mobo list.
Sorry to hear about it.

contact both the MB and the PSU company's and send them pics and tell them what you told us...I bet you get new parts sent out to you...if not come back here and raise a stink in this tread. I bet those company's don't want too much bad rep on here

Not always true. MSI never came on here. They suck and they know it. So I guess they dont care.

It's not the power supply. It's the cheaply constructed 4pin cpu socket.

Did you have a power outage recently? Perhaps you could have had a power surge.

That's bizarre man...

You should raise hell about this. If you left your rig while you were out of the house, this could have potentially cost you your house. Definitely raise hell and get some free *&^%!!

95% of replies to your problem here are nonsense. Most electronic pc boards have the negative track running around the periphery of the pc board.This is just how electronic pc boards are designed.
The fact that yours seems to have burnt the negative rail on the board indicates a severe short circuit between the negative rail and the numerous positive voltage rails.
My guess would be a 12 v rail as there was sever current draw (amperes) to burn the negative track like that.
Look for corresponding black carbon burn marks on the backing plate of your case.You may also find smal areas of melted metal perhaps ?
If so,this is where the short circuit took place.If you don't find this , something on the actual board OR a perifial device shorted and took out the motherboard..
A fan that burns out will in all likelihood short to such an extent that it may draw maximum amps and burn things out completely.Now if this fan was getting powered from the board that would be indicative of the damage you suffered.

Ok,so a fan shorting would not be this severe , but the analogy of other components able of such high current draws is the same.

To the idiots posting nonsense here....Better to keep quiet and thought an idiot than opening your mouth and proving your an idiot..

After reading this thread full of people trying to give advice to the OP situation you come off as very rude. did someone flame you or something? do you normally act like this? add your opinion or advice and leave it at that, there is no need to call everyone idiots multiple times because of your fat ego.

Better to keep quiet and thought???? lolwut

On topic, i am very glad that you were home when you were to catch this thing before it burnt down your house . as others have stated i would definitely grab a new PSU and board or send the manufacturers the pictures and information hoping for some replacements free of charge.

Thank you very much Auld. Kriss you're coming into this with way too much animosity. While your post was informative, your attitude implies that you feel smarter or more knowledgeable than the other members. Truth is: no one asked you to read this thread or post here, so unless you can do that without bashing other members, get lost!

OP: hope you've made some progress!!
