classified e760 ruined?

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
it seems like a mb standoff damaged one of the traces that go from the last memory slot to the socket zone while removing the board from my haf and I wanted to ask you if this could be fixed or I will just have to throw my board
I know the quality of the pic sucks but you can 'clearly' see the copper on the right trace I circled in red:



thanks

It will probably be fine did you try turning it on? I remember scratching my boards but nothing really happen but depends how deep it is which i cant tell from the pic since all i can see is a blur mounting hole in the whole pic

ufff..for god's luck the board is fine.. I did a 30 sec suicide run with a delta 3300 pointing to the cpu (because atm I don't even have the stock intel hsf lol..) and it posted fine.. the scratch was superficial but I was a bit scared because as you can see in the megasuperduper blurred pic theres like a copper dot passing through the trace.. anyway I think this was a close call imo.. same is not gonna happen never ever again

thanks anyway

it looked like if it was.. at least you can see copper in middle of the trace.. the board posted with 3x2 with sticks in slot 1, 3, 5 but I didn't test the last slot

so your using slots 1 3 and 5 but your not using the last slot?
ok im throughly confused here, slots 1 3 and 5 are red, and the black slots should never be used unless you have some kind of OC deathwish.

lol... I'm an idiot... I also got confused.. cause when I tried to boot with 1 3 5 I was already using the last slot... atm I thought it was red(1) black(2) red(3) black(4) red(5) black(6) ... so that means the last slot(red) was working fine...
