I have recently built my new pc, and after connecting my PSU cable (which is connected to my fans) to cha_fan and turning my pc on my mobo sparked with a loud boom, and went to a reboot
After the reboot it showed me the screen "overclock not succesful" (I didn't overclock) and it works fine since then
My motherboard is asus P8Z68-V LX
What should I do?
I used a cable included with my PSU. That cable has one PSU output, two molex outputs and one 4 pin, what I was thinking is a cha_fan output
I connected the 4 pin one and after turning my pc on, it sparked
Not my point, if it's broke yes should be replaced - The quesion is on who's nickel. When a item is RMAed, it should be for manuf defect - Not user inflicked. I do feel sorry, accidents happen - opps this is not an accident
OP please forgive - just calling a spade a spade
I got my W-2 form today so I'm gonna cut off work early and go home and cheat on my taxes. I better take a ream of 8½ x 11 from the office supply room so I can print out all those forms.
See you tomorrow!
Aw thats nothin bro, my dad claimed me on his taxes (last year), I was expecting to get atleast something for it, since Y'know, he got 3.5 grand... I didn't want much... he gave me 20 bucks... ... ... ... ... ... And that was only after haseling him about it
Well, you made a really big mistake but you're the lucky one. Your board survived. Now you have two options, if you feel it works fine good enough keep using it and send it back when something else fails in it's warranty period. or the other option would be to not tell them the complete truth and send the board back.
Either way, you'll still win and will still be the lucky guy.
But for next time, just be sure that you don't connect 2 out's or 2 in's. Plus Everything plug or pin on the mobo has a specific type of connector , 2 different connectors never match unless you use force on them. The moment you feel you're having to use force (excessive) than normal you need to check the manuals.
