    Of coarse my ASUS MoBo is always a PITA to get it to post.
    To clear the RTC I have to remove the VC to get to the battery :mad:

    Well I ran a detected 30A circuit hoping maybe the PSU was starving for power but that was not it. :(
    I don't think I'm ever gonna buy another ASUS MoBo :mad: This is the second one that I've had issues with.

    I won't repeat what I've already written in the pm but it's starting to look like the fallen PSU may have taken the mobo with it :confused: Once again, good luck with it all.

    I fitted a another fan today.. The weather has suddenly decided to get really warm here in dear old blighty especially here in London. Anyway temps aren't too bad insde the machine (CPU 35c idle, 55c under load and ambient temperature is around 26c) just to be on the safe side though, I had a spare 120mm fan, so in it went..:cool: Again I'm using it as an exhaust and it has lowered temps by a couple of degrees especially on the southbridge. These modern graphic cards are so long nowadays that it's slightly covering the southbridge heatsink (it's a tight fit). If it was any longer my SATA ports would have been rendered useless as mine aren't the type that are oblique to the mobo. Something to watch out for in future builds...
    Anyway, once again, good luck with the repairs.
