Mateo Posted December 21, 2005 Posted December 21, 2005 I just got in all my parts today and when I went to boot it up for the first time my 6800GS caught fire. I had the PCIE cable plugged in the right way, and the FDD and the molex connecters both pluged in. Anything that I could have done wrong? Could the MoBo have overvolted my card? I made sure everything was set at default(jumper wise). I am super pissed, now I won't get my replacement until sometime around New Years. New Egg will take their time, I know it. I am not a newbie at all, but this is my first DFI mobo and my first socket 939 system. I have built many socket A and 478 systems. Also, the mobo does work. It beeps, and I only get 1 red light. Anyway can I check to make sure this won't happen again? Could my PSU have overvolted the PCIE cable? I have a Sunbeam nuuo and it's geting great reviews, so I doubt it.
