Ouch just blew up my P5N32 SLI Deluxe

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
There was a problem with the board so me and my dad powerd it up with no cpu in.... BANG! smoke everyhwere tranistors flying across the room.
I have removed my backplate from my tyhphoon i just hope my warranty is still there, there is no evidence of a BT being there. This is really upsetting i just hope i get another board free of cost as this was my birthday present, i might try to get it swapped for a p5wd2 as they have really good reveiws, but can you use sli x 16 in them? As i might want to get anohter 7600Gt in the future as other cards are really expensive.
I hope i havent damaged any of my other parts cant find out untill i get and lga775 board with pci express and ddr2. Im just praying that everything will be ok and this wont cost me anything.

Was there anyreason for it to explode lol? Test all your other componants in another motherboard to test that they work.

LOL, holy crap man! What was the original problem with the mobo. Not sure but I think it is possible that it is your power supply, rather than board. Without the cpu in there it may have been enough to finish your board.

Just a thought, you may want to test that power supply befor you plug it into a new board.

Well i can only think it was your PSU or a freak power surge.

Don't feel bad, I'm just now getting the smeel of my deep fried P5WD2-E Prem. out of the house. My mobo caught fire and sizzled the other night. I don't think I can RMA it, But I'm gonna call, since it's only 1 week old.

SLI is way overrated. I considered it but seein how the nForce 4 boards overclock, I ditched the "thought" of ever going SLI.

I'm more please knowing that my CPU can do 4.3ghz w/o a glitch 24/7 and a single 6800 GS that can play pretty much anything and from what I've seen, I think it's useless to have SLI when gaming on-line.

The P5WD2 would be a much better choice overall. If you're planning on a 2nd 7600 GT, don't do it, right now there are several people selling their 7800 GTX for as low as $300 on line, so think of it like this: 6-to-8 months from now, people is going to be selling their X1900XTX for $300 or less, so no need for a 2nd 7600 GT one one of those cards will be faster than a 7600 GT SLI system.

That's strange... I've powered up my board a few times without the cpu just for testing purposes. I know of at least one other friend that had a 478 motherboard without a CPU and it just lit up but not much else until the CPU was put in. I think your board had other issues.

hmmmm. sounds like your capacitors overloaded. (which doesnt happen often)

capacitors fill up with electricity each time you power on your computer, but they take a little time to empty. sometimes if you turn your computer on and off, over and over, it overloads them. and BOOM....

did you turn your compy on and off alot quickly?

Yes i did, it turned on anf odd automatically every 1 sec, thats the origonal prob, i moved my graphics card to my other pci express slot becuase i was making space, and i had the pc on and was browsing files to get the graphics drivers and it shutoff, so i turned the psu on and off and everytime i turned it on all the fan lights jus flickerd and moved slightly, so the power was not a constant flow, as if sum1 was turning it on and off conastanly, so i took it apart and laid out the motherboard and psu, plugged in all in and once again it started turning on and off, because i could hear it, then BANG! luckly me or my dad wasent looking over it tbh
