The only intel boards I've had, asus and asrock, both died. I've heard of asus being arse's about RMA's but never a board catching fire.
The thread I read some time ago about their arse's from RMA had his small VRM under the the CPU socket catch fire

Felt kind of bad for not posting any ghetto in last post, so here is the psu that got replaced. Its a no name "550" watt, with only 2 sata power cables and not a single pcie power cable. The top plate was swapped with a thermaltake one to mount the 120mm fan, which, yes, is powered by plugging it into the motherboard's case fan header. I took out both fans that it shipped with since they were garbage and made it so it sucks in air from the top, and pushes it in an s shape towards the back where I ripped apart the previous ventilation. It really does run cooler this way than with the stock setup.

Thanks! It has parts from pretty much 5 different things, has caused many headaches, and has cut my hands a few times.

One of the GPU fans decided to completely die out on me, and with the other one spinning only half of the time, I couldn't wait any longer to receive all my water cooling parts so I took to doing a quick fix. I removed part of the shroud- which is a pain in the butt to do- and tied a 90 mm fan blowing in on the right, and a 80mm Cooler Master to the side of the heatsink closer to the back. Thanks XFX rolleyes.gif

No problem. Also, that painful description kinda sounds like it's about my IBM 486. biggrin.gif

Hahaha, reminds me of all the times I'd strap fans onto video cards (like one of the pictures I posted earlier).

Well done. Now, if I could just get my Radeon 9800 Pro (yep!) from that post I posted earlier working properly (it had a component fall off of it, sadly), then I could do the same and get...uh...a super-duper whopping amount of those, as in a super-duper 2003 load of them. biggrin.gif
