mobo blew up [pic] - Page 2

post #11 of 24
Looks a bit like when I let the earth lead (that SHOULD have been attached to the case) accidentally touch the board whilst the rig was plugged in. I killed my shiny new 486 mobo but took it back and blagged that it was "like that when I opened the box".

I think that the WD was a victim.

the wd passport that was plugged in--could that have something to do with it? or is it just a victim?
Did you plug in the passport and it immediately happened or this was an overnight affair?

Oh dear, epic pic.
Im not electronics expert, but i know that OC cause other components work faster too, then Onboard things stop working, well they not explode.
On my Pentium 4 PC, if you OC it higher than 3.2Ghz the Onboard Audio stop working, i can imagine that if your USB Controller is old and you crazy OC'ed your PC it may pop.

it had been plugged in for a while. no spark. i wasnt using the passport at that point of failure. that drive had been the victim of a bad cable from wd that would cause the drive to go off and on repeatedly in a short amount of time whenever the cable wiggled. i replaced the cable for it about a year ago tho. had been running well until last night.

so if it wasnt the overclock, and it wasnt the passport, what would cause a overvoltage at the usb connector? psu? why?

Then the psu could be the problem. Maybe a surge of power, psu couldn't regulate it properly, then pop?

I had a blow out once a year ago on a friend's computer - except it happened up near the CPU... first his PC died, then we tried unplugging everything except core components and it turned on. I plugged everything back in and it crackled/popped and smoke came from near the CPU.

It was still relatively new so he RMA'd the motherboard and PSU... scary though.

I wouldn't use that PSU again (or the mobo, of course).
At long last...

WD hard drives are normally the cause.

i have owned 6 WD hard drives. everyone i have owned has blown up within 6 months of buying it. my mates laptop had a WD drive in it and it caught fire inside his laptop.
