Default Re: Motherboard fire!

Newegg approved the exchange for both the motherboard and the memory (just in case on the memory). On the memory, I changed it from what I previously ordered to the one you (Slaymate) recommended in one of your posts.

Newegg.com - G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL8D-8GBXM

It looks nearly identical to the one I had previously, but figured it might be wise to change it anyway in case there was some sort of weird incompatibility the previous version. I'm hoping the CPU, GPU and other stuff wasn't affected, but won't know until I get the new motherboard and try everything.

I agree with your assessment that it probably didn't arc, but I'll be more careful with my cable management in the future, just in case that was the cause.
