Sad to announce funeral services for an ASUS P5N32-E SLI PLUS. I Guess front side buss speeds of 1500 MHZ was just to much stress and it died of heat exhaustion.

They say you're not really a doctor until you've killed a patient...

You just killed a motherboard.  Now you can call yourself a geek.

Hazards of the game!

Cool icon! Is that A T-Rex head?

 

Black Zion mentioned the blowing of A capacitor. I was running up A new test set, that the electrolytic capacitor was wired reverse polarity, and when the capacitor blew it looked liked A volcano spewing lava.

Its a human skull with pointy teeth.

 

Anyhow, I've never had a cap blow on me but I have had a mobo get so hot that stuff started melting and fall off it. It had a total meltdown lol
