  • MB870 up in smoke

    Today my new MB870 went up in smoke

    Seems to have burnt out on the corner where the system fan connects, on the underside of the connector. Completly screwed it. I was running it from a normal atx power supply on a testbed for instal/setup, so no opus or 12v issuses can be to blame. Nothing was acutally plugged in to the system fan either, and i can see the layers in the pcb have all burnt out on the corner, so I'm wondering what might have caused this??
