Hey I upgraded my PC's Motherboard from an ASUS Rampage III Extreme to a ASUS Rampage IV Extreme and I made another PC with the Rampage III Extreme and I finished building it and powered it on and it made a pop then a lot of smoke from around the top right area of the MotherBoard and then I let it sit and tried once more to see if it was just something from sitting for six months and it did it again... I got it on video though! I think all the parts are still on warranty though if something is fried! I have over $1,000 worth of parts in it. While my main desktop has over $4,000. (would not have been happy if it were the other way around!) BTW it is a little black thing I think that is right under the MotherBoard power button. Also should my other parts be fine?? If you can tell me what might be wrong I would appreciate it!


I got it on video but it won't upload so after several tries I am gonna try later and see if it works.

Yup, Asus boards are notorious for smoke and fire.
