Yea don't know how but thats fine I couldn't get my stock northbridge back on anyway which I kind of liked. Whats funny is I sent an e-mail complaining I had to pay 9.10 for return shipping on a "defective" product and the head of RMA's sent me a message saying that I am responsible to pay for return shipping but since it was defective he would accredit the money back into my account...haha I love newegg

otherwise excellent board and I would get it.
WTF how did u fry it? Just from static electricity and not wearing a wrist strap?
