  1. ooooh like that haha. I just took out the motherboard and put it on a plastic plate, only the psu connected. Still same problem... I can't believe I just broke the first pc I built 7 years ago
  2. Hahaha doesn't matter bro. what did you mean by "you couldve just tide it up"?
  3. Sadly I don't have any other socket 1155 motherboard or cpu laying around. I did just check it pretty thoroughly for burnt places or something like that but could not find anything.
