Hi, I got a really good pre-build system within the last year: a GTX 560, i7 processor, 16gb ram, 1 tb hard drive. Everything worked fine until about two months in 4 of my 8? usb ports stopped working. Can a cheap motherboard fry all your components. I'm starting to think that since the system only cost me $1100 dollars that they may have cheaped on component's like the motherboard. The system still works fine otherwise. I recently sent it in to get a replacement motherboard and am just wondering if them putting a cheap motherboard in was the problem in the first place.
The power supply is 700w, which should be more than enough for that system. The motherboard is a ASROCK is it a problem with the motherboard or was I just unlucky?
Yeah, everything was working great and I plugged in one last peripheral and four broke instantly. It was a xbox controller, but not the wired one that you're supposed to use. It was the wireless one, that has a usb connector, but I don't think it's meant for PC's.
