|The one that blew was an Antec Truepower Quatro 1000W. It was overpowered for my system, but I got a really good price when CompUSA was going out. I replaced it with an Antec 850W, which should be closer to what I need but still a bit over.|
I took the CPU out, and it doesn't look abnormal. There aren't any swollen capacitors, but there is a spot on the back behind the ram that looks like it's significantly corroded. I don't know if something got hot or whether dust just settled on in back there. I can take a picture and host if it that would be worth seeing.
The board was under warranty, so I guess I'll send it off to Asus tomorrow. I just hope the CPU isn't shot, because it'll be 2 weeks until I have a new board to test it on. There are a couple local PC shops in town, but none that seem to know what's going on. I live in the middle of nowhere, so I'm not surrounded by great techs. I guess they'd still be able to test a processor though. I may just take my components in and mail in the motherboard.
