Luckily I had a replacement and will RMA the board. I get them through Winston Group and have never had an RMA Issue so I know it will be fine. I build an average of 4 of these a week for the last 7 years and this was only the second one to fail. MSI might be inexpensive but they are pretty reliable. I have not had a single unit return in or out of warranty in that 7 years so I am pretty happy with them.
A little drama was good though because I was able to demonstrate what to do when things do indeed go wrong. Was a perfect day in all. Still on a bit of a high from it.
