    While in normal operation (read: playing a game) the PC shut off
    unexpectedly. All attempts since then to boot has failed. The fans and
    lights will work for about 1/2 a second and then nothing. I swapped
    out the power supply to eliminate it as the cause which leads me to
    either the mainboard or the cpu.
    I had been wathcing the temps and nothing has been too high. I even
    enabled shutdown if the temp got too high so I'm not suspecting the
    chip, but how can I rule it out?

    Anyone have any ideas I could try other than the likely RMA?
    Is there any way to distinguish between a cpu failure and a mobo
    failure if I dont have an extra of either to swap out?

  2. Hi,

    I had exactly the same failure, you need to replace the mobo.

    It's best to get a ZNF3-250 then because I wouldn't trust the -150's any
