Default Smoke your Asus A7N8X

my memory serves me right you have a A7N8X deluxe also. Well I just got mine yester day and was chugging along fine, you know benching a little gaming a little. Then I started to add all the other goodies like USB & Game port add in card. Well, the USB when in fine but the Game port didn't. Seems I got it in alright but on row of pins off. As you can guess a stream of smoke poured into my case and my cold cathode came one....WTF!!! I don't have a cold cathode!!! That was the wire bright as a bolt of lighting in my case.

After I yanked the power cord out of the PS and after I stopped shaking like a whipped puppy I said a prayer, hooked up the power and turned it on.

always connect the stuff correctly

(didn't know that ignoring this would actually burn up the wire!)
