You'd need a hella-powerful magnet to clear the cmos, it'd be more likely that you did some damage when you ran it without the 8-pin connector(possibly to the CPU itself).

A magnetic screwdriver isn't going to have the force to damage anything on the mobo, unless you're scratching stuff with it.

Darn this sucks if something broke. I hope it'S not one of the very expensive part. :/

This is why I prefer to buy pre-build computers. I am afraid of screwing something up or buying incompatible parts.

BAD NEWS!!!! This is DEFINITELY not just me. This is a problem with this motherboard. there are 3 topic made on msi's forum about this and about 4-5 reviews on this motherboard about this problem. I HOPE I dont have to go through another waiting period and I HOPE I dont have to go through another recall D:

Aww, at least it's not just you and you can get a refund/replacement. :)

You can damage mobos by not plugging in the CPU power connector?

I suppose the cpu would draw power both through the 24 pin and th e8 pin connector. With only the 24 pin connector plugged in, you could have overloaded a component.

Maybe, im posting about it on msi's official forums and there are about like 5 threads with this same problem except mine is an extreme case so ill see what they have to say about it.

edit: if you wanna see what they say, here's the thread link: http://forum-en.msi.com/index.php?topic=146729.msg1091850#msg1091850

I am curious if it broke because you did something wrong or if it broke because it's defective, though. I'm not tech-savy, although if it's defective, I would search Google and read reviews or comments about your broken component before getting the same one again, to make sure it isn't a common problem with that one. If it's the case, you should probably find an alternative, although if it's you who did something wrong, I am unsure if getting a refund will be as easy.

I've never had a good experience with home-built computers. Whenever I do extensive rebuilding of a computer, it always fries eventually. If the smoke comes out, face the truth: Your motherboard bought the farm. I'm really sorry.

When you go out to look for a replacement computer, buy a Dell. My family currently owns three Dells, and not one of them has had problems (other than being outdated). Even a used Dell is better than a home-built PC. You should be able to transfer your hard disks to your new system.

Even dells fail, and when they do, tech support isn't always great. It was a major pita when I'm trying to get a replacement motherboard, and I'm talking to some Indian tech support guy who barely knows english. I heard of someone whose hard drive failed after three months. Then, Dell shipped him a refurbished replacement with the same problem that also failed in three months. This happened about three more times, after which I'm guessing he just went to best buy and got a hard drive there.

I also often heard bad stories about Dell laptops. In the past, most of the time when someone on forums brought up a topic about how his laptop hard drive died. I'm not sure if this changed.

Personally I decided to stay away from building computers myself in case. I'm not tech-savy enough for that kind of stuff and even kllrnohj on Cemetech once recommended to not bother if you don't know what you're doing (and he knows his stuff).

EDIT: Nvm this was Foamy3, not Kllrnohj.
