After assembling my new system last night, I go to plug in the power supply to the wall and soon after doing so I notice smoke coming from the bottom of the motherboard (this is before booting only simply connecting the power cord to an outlet).
The component that burned was a small area between two capacitors
on the bottom, right under the last PCI slot.
The capacitor was not bent, smashed, or disturbed in anyway during the install. So my question is, was this a board defect that could've happened to anyone during install or was this something that I possibly did to cause it?
