    OK Here goes a dumbass question. I was screwing around and slipped and put 120volts through the 5volt side on the motherboard and took out everything, but my E5800 and DDR3 12800.Does anyone know how I would go about trouble shooting this board to get it back up? Or does anyone have this board for sale or the EP35C-DS3R for sale .Yes I am A Dumbass :eek:

    I do understand where you are coming from. But this a hobby for me. I am already running something close to what you said and the wife is running a very nice quad AMD. The board in question I picked up for 15.00 with an E6750 and ran perfect,:rolleyes: on another board I picked up 7 capacitors are bad and I ordered them.They should be here on Friday

    That is where I go, or TigerDirect to get the parts I want or need.I play around with replacing capacitors and a few other things. Sometimes it`s just hard to give up.Hardheaded that way

    If you read the first post because I am a dumbass :D. I was using an old AT power supply to power my Video card and a relay to turn it on and off the same time as my main power supply on the computer.Playing around trying sh!t and I was using a relay and 12v from the main power supply to turn it on,so and here`s the dumbass part. as you know with an AT power supply you use 120volts at the switch to turn it off and on. I had an open tab on the relay that had 120volts all time. so I was switching wires around and hit the 120 volt tab and BOOM. Took out the 9600GT and hard drive and motherboard. I only payed 15.00 for the board and a E6750. . I have 3 or 4 computers going all the time. It`s just a hobby seeing what I can and can not do.
