OCN had a burned GD65 not to long ago. I'll have to dig it up.
Not yet, been away all weekend and I did it Friday.
Least to say, I was rather angry so I packed it up, turned off the lights, and called it a day after I got the fire put out. It wasn't huge, looks like one of the top most MOSFETs that burned.
I will say that the inclusion of the PCIe 6pin connector for the supplementary PCIe power is nice though.
Right now though, AsRock's 880G Extreme 3 and the Gigabyte 870A-UD3 (with a Enzotech MST-81) are much better values (Depending on which is cheaper.)
Finally, some love for the board I scored for $65 on ebay!
IIRC they are $105 or so on newegg.
