Not actually sure what happened, I'm back in my native Sweden for a few weeks of vacation, but my NYC (where the server is) tech people tell me it literally caught on fire. I guess there was some sticky tape holding the cables together that got overheated or something, or perhaps the capacitors next to the CPU sockets exploded, it has happened to me before.

I'd like to see a capacitor explode whilst still inside a server... :mellow:

 

Them fluffy looking bits no doubt burn in seconds... How would a capacitor get so over charged in the first place?

 

I blame face and all random users... ¬_¬

 

I remember back in my 6th form, we'd deliberately blow capacitors up just for kicks... :P It was pretty funny seeing brown fluffy stuff explode into the room after a loud bang...

 

ahhh.... school... what a waste of dollah

Lol. Did the capacitor reminents short anything else in there, that is if the capacitor didn't trigger the PSU to catch or if it just stopped working? Its a real risk if it was still running.

Goodluck finding a new mobo, was it a true server intel board? If so, sucks that it costs around $200...
