(Check for power)
Everything is turnning on, lights, fans, DVD rom
(Check for ground)
I'll double check that but everything looked good when I put in the second mobo
Checked, checked and double checked
everything is installed and seated properly.
Both mobo's seem to be fine no burns, melted plastic or bulging capacitors.
Both sets of ram seem to be in good condition same with the CPU's
The first mobo was the M4A78T-E with a PII 955 X4 cpu and XMS3 DDR3 ram (4 Gb kit) I overclocked it one day to 3.7 Ghz and the screen went blank
The second mobo is a older M3A78 with a phenom 9850 ( had no problems with it before)
As I said I tried three diffrent gpu's. a 4650, 4870 and a 5850 now the 4650 might be cooked but I know the 5850 works just fine.
The first PSU is a Corsair TX 750W the other one is 300W peace of crap I got from a buddy who said it worked just fine (not to sure on that) so Im not a 100% sure of either one.
Its just weird how its doing the samething with all these diffrent parts.
FX 8320// Asus Sabertooth R2.0 // HIS R9 280x //8Gb of 1866Mhz ram, H50 cooling, HX850W psu all stuffed into a NZXT Phantom case.
