Were you using 2500x1600 monitor, yes. Let me guess. You never knew it happen until the computer refused to to boot?

Let me ask? Do you live in CA? Did this happen in the Spring or early Summer 2010?

Well my computer kept shutting off and I tried to figure out why, then eventually noticed that pin was melted . I've never lived in CA though, so it's not from any mysterious CA power surge.

I just don't want it to happen again, if it's possible to have happened from an overload due to PCI-E bus drawing too much, I'll get one of these when they are available.

The R2E doesn't have any additional power to the PCI-E slots, unless I'm blind. http://www.newegg.com/Product/ImageG...%20Motherboard

I highly doubt it's your PCIe slot; it would happen to alot more people if it was.

You only have an HD5870

This is product for people with a motherboard without external PCIe slot power and multiple power hungry video cards (GTX 480's).

I don't know if it is just EVGA, but the boards I have seen get melted 24-pin power connectors have been EVGA Classified X58 boards. It makes me wonder if it is a Classy only issue.

The R3E does. Ive seen other R2E's like that.
If you can solider and wanted save $20.00 you can solider a molex to the yellow +12 / blk -12, does the same thing.

It's not just Classifieds. The original Classifieds allowed 3-way SLI and didn't have a molex adapter, so they seem to have this issue most often, just because people run more GPUs on them.

It's not as common, but I've also seen pics of burned ASUS and Gigabyte boards as well.

It scares me. I'm not letting that thing anywhere near my board!

EDIT: I just figured out what exactly this thing does. Now I think it may be useful in some cases, but I will never need one.

it would have been nice if this little gadget was out before the previous owner of my motherboard put 3 5870's in it and melted the 24pin.
but then i wouldn't own a classified right now would i?
