I had a TSPP delivered today

Apart form the fact its missing 2 of the boards in the backbox....urgh....have you ever seen a CPU board with such discoloration before? Obviously the Fluro did this but its the first time I've come across it.

Think its caused damage to the board? Guess I wont know until I populate the others and try it out

Yes, it is caused by the fluorescent lite. It weakens the plastic molex connectors too.

No damage other than a bleached look.

Thanks, that's good to hear it's hopefully just a cosmetic thing. I did notice some of the connectors are brittle, at least they are cheap/easy to replace
