i need some help from you guys more than ever!!!
this morning i was on the computer and it freaking caught on fire!!!
smoke came out the back of it and i unplugged it.

now the fire was small, but it was still a freaken fire!!!!

it took me awhile but i finally got it to turn back on, and i took the side off to see the damage.
nothing was wrong with it from what i could see, so i watched it as it was running.

then it happened again!!!
it started sparking and smoke came out but i saw where it was happening!

i upload the picture of my motherboard and the sparking is happening to the left side of that asrock heat sink above the processor slot.

God i knew when people said computer could catch firethat they were joking.... my GOD!




it looked fine

MOSFET probably blew... can your RMA?

Hope your CPU is fine...

A bad cap maybe?

Where was the fire coming from?

@ OP That's not a picture of YOUR motherboard. It's a picture of the model of your motherboard.

An actual pic from your mobo would definitely help.

I don't usually do the sig thing, and dang you duckie for being faster than me.

That one is just too good to pass up.

I am sorry for your plight and I'm not jabbing you.
