Quoted from boagman:
Not trying to run salt in the wound or anything, but was there anything in particular that you did, in terms of mods or added technical stuff (shaker motor, for example...), that caused these boards to "pop", as you say? I guess what I'm getting at is this: was it honestly your fault, or is/was it just bad stuff from the factory?
Hi boagman, no, nothing. No mods. Just straight from the factory. Not even a topper. CPU board lost the 5v after it had been on for 2 hours during a party. Just unlucky, I suppose. I installed the extra insulation under the plastic next to the library scoop to prevent the short.
