    Unhappy major problem

    Ok today since it was nice i decided to see if i could get the motherboard working. i hooked up the M1-ATX according to the directions and connected it to the battery to test it. The motherboard fan started to spin but it also started to smoke and burn at the squared location. wtf did i do wrong?

    Erm did you test the mobo on a normal ATX PSU??

    Can you tes the M1 on another baord that you have spare and wouldnt be gutted if you blew it? Or jsut send it back as your wirign seems good to me!

    Could be the mobo or the M1. Send both back!

    what did you have the mobo resting on? anything that could short it?

    Unless you can get hold of that same chip and program it the same way (assuming it needs proramming and you have the equipment necessary to pull it off) and are deft enough to desolder it from the board and then solder the new one in....
    I'm not that good.
    Send it back and get it replaced under warranty.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

    As with life smoking is bad for your motherboards health.

    I agree with others send it back as faulty
