There is no way they can repair this I don't think o_o... I mean the trace is completely blown.
I dont' mean to be mean, but, are you a younger builder?
I know you're probably still learning (we've all been there) but you know, you have been a bit impatient at first. You can't expect replies within a couple of hours when posting on a forum, especially when others don't know what is going on. And repeatedly bumping a post that quickly actually turns some people off, and makes it harder for you to get a response. You're asking for "What went wrong?", when none of us know what went wrong. All we know is something is defective and got fried (unless an item were plugged in halfway or etc), and needs RMA.
When things don't work properly, they're often a real pain in the butt to troubleshoot.
One time, I had a video card die, which PREVENTED the board from even POSTING. Boy, that was a real pain to test. The only clue was the computer just black screening during 3D. After that later happened to a replacement card, I realized it was from putting 1.65v into the AGP (which also controls northbridge). Keeping it at 1.55v and the next card has been running for the last six years.

And don't get me started on when my next system refused to post because the Micron D9 (a famous problem) IC"s degraded on my RAM. I actually had to take the parts to mwave (I lived right next to them) and they determined the RAM was bad. I knew nothing about the d9 problem before that. Cost me money I didn't want to spend...

And for God's sake, WHY ARE YOU STILL TRYING TO CHEAP OUT ON THE MEMORY? That's like asking for a computer version of a darwin award.

Just RMA The freaking memory and STOP Trying to cheap out. Otherwise, we'll have another thread with you complaining that you stuck that ram in a different system and it blew a fuse in your house and caused a fire again...

You don't want to get injured, do you?
If you want to test stuff, test the parts you didn't think blew, like the video card and CPU and PSU.

Just hope that your CPU and PSU and video card are still alive, after all of this....

Sorry for the issues you're having.
