It's starting to look like I've fried a motherboard and severely damaged another. :banghead:

Going to have to do some figuring to find the problem parts and rebuild around them.
If you need any parts, let me know.:(

I found this cpu over ark.... Xeon E3-1230
http://ark.intel.com/Product.aspx?id=52271
Well... it's basically a i7-2600 but for way less money and without integrated vga which is veryyyyy good because puts power output down to 80w
I was thinking.... well... for the most points.... 3 of these with 3 cheap (well, I won't need to overclock and all mobos nowadays seems to use pretty decent components) motherboards on stock speed can be faster to generate points than 2 2600k (on a more expensive motherboard) overclocked to 4.0ghz for less money... do you guys agree ?

Yeah, I was looking at that. I'm just not sure if it's compatible with standard Sandy Bridge motherboards...

well it doesn't says anything about chipset.... anyway.... I think it would be a very risky move not to allow it to be used with h/9/x 6 series chipset...
