So earlier I mentioned that I got my motherboard to work. Guess what happened just now. Broken again, this time with a large puff of bluish smoke and smoldering electronics. I just hope my processor and video card and power supply are okay.

So my new motherboard had two major issues: number 1 - I sent in a version 2, received a version 1 number 2 - the bios was corrupt and there is no recovery documentation - only forums. Also version one and two have different bios files, so thinking I have one version could have been disastrous. Luckily spec wise one and two are almost the same.
