Is my board fried? Tags: New Build Systems Last response: April 23, 2009 12:31 PM in Systems Share janik_litalien April 23, 2009 2:53:57 AM Hi everyone I have an ASUS P5N Motherboard with an intel core2 Quad CPU I don't remember the brand of my cooling fan as I write this from the laptop but suffice to say it is oversized for Maximum cooling. As I was in the living room, I heard a dry snapping sound like something falling to the floor. I went to the den and the computer was no longer working. The dreaded question I have is : Can it be my board that fried? Or is it the power supply. I bought and put this system together about 2 months ago, it's brand spanking new and I one of the reasons I favored Intel over AMD was due to the temperature control features. On top of that my powerbar is surge-protected and is also new. My power supply was an older 500w one so I tend to think this might be it as it was hot afterwards and had a smell like brake oil. So please tell me...Is it possibly the powerbar as I suspect or am I merely in denial and it's my board? thanks in advance More about : board fried n3f0ur April 23, 2009 12:31:04 PM List the parts with makes & models. Inspect them for visible burnouts, damage, etc. Even a crap powerbar is fine as long as it has a fuse in it. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
