Please do not turn that computer back on with that motherboard in it. You might wind up damaging something that isn't already damaged or you might start an even worse fire that isn't easily controlled with standard house FXs.

Unplug the thing and contact asrock.

If you have not modified it or installed improperly, damaged it, etc. I would contact the manufacturer and start the RMA process.

That's certainly not a normal issue.

Well, then dont turn it on.
"Doctor it hurts when i do this". Doctor:"Then dont do it"

Yeah sounds like something shorted out. Lets see a pic.
Dont think that you can leave it off for a while and its gonna heal itself. The next time you turn it on ... you might loose something else that might cost you even more.

Good Luck.

Its not getting any smarter out there. You have to come to terms with your stupidity and make it work for you. FZ

Well crap I am not getting this board. Was considering it, but I think I will spend $10 more on a MSI GD65 because this is the last thing I would want happening when I am at school and my PC is at home, unattended and folding.
