AN9-32X Fatal1ty AN9 1.7 in Processors, Motherboards and Memory Posted October 18, 2007 There was an error code of "8.6." on the BIOS display. The code means "assert PWM for CPU core voltage". WTF does that mean? There was also the distinct smell of burning electronics the last time I tried to power up. It also shuts itself off 20 seconds after power up.
