I could not believe it and instantly gave it up for dead when I first saw the damage
The ehternet on my nF2 Ultra (2600+ setup in my sig) was surged. The switch blew up and it went straight to my board. It automatically shut down and I had no idea what happened. Ethernet since has been dead but the board still works perfectly fine to this day. Nothing as extreme as the board actually being shorted out though.
