I just got my new computer parts and installed them carefully. On the first startup i checked from BIOS that everything is fine, which they were. Then I restarted just to see if it would start up with my old windows 7 ultimate installation. It opened and started installing new drivers and I thought wow this is too good to be true. About 2 minutes later something burst into flames for a second and I instantly shut down PC. I got no clue what I did wrong or if it was a completely random hardware failure.
Here's somekind of picture of it now:
When you get your new board, just install your CPU and one stick of RAM and hook up your power supply. You can hook your monitor into the onboard video. Then boot into the BIOS screen and give it a run through. If you want to update the BIOS, this will be an excellent time to do so. Then, add one piece of your build at a time and reboot each time, connecting / disconnecting power and turning on and booting after each piece is added. Then, if you have a problem, you will have a really good idea where the problem lies. Or, if you have an onboard fire as you did here, you won't burn your video card, or RAM or any other component.
Sucks when it happens, but if it had to happen be glad it happened now while it's early and you can just swap it out now.
also in some random review I found out this about CNPS5X:
Its main problem is the compatibility issue: the piece that holds the screws is too long and can be blocked by the chipset heatsink or other motherboard parts, and you can even damage your motherboard if you aren't aware of this problem.
But there's no specifications of that
Also the video card seems to work fine on my older pc
edit3 in case:
people have managed to get similiar problems by misplacing case standoffs, I know I had them right tho.
