Karma.
We have a guy working in the store with just the same problem. Everything he touches breaks down. (sometimes touching isn't even needed)

And, "normal use"... Who are you talking to eh?

I know I overclock, but none of the thre processors were ever overvolted, and the chaintech always ran at a measily 166fsb.

Hardware normally doesn't break just by me touching it.

Finally some good news. I tempered a bit with the Chaintech and got it back to work. Seems like one of the bios pins were bent.

The NF7-S must be DOA. Hope i'll get my money back.

I noticed it when I took it out to replace it with the NF7-S bios. : )
