    Might have broken my motherboard. Help?

    Not really sure if this is the best place to put this, but it seems my motherboard might have gotten fried from a short circuit. Here's what happened: I unplugged the control wire from my CPU cooler, plugged it back in slightly misaligned, and the system shut off and wouldn't turn back on. When...

    Anyone know how an LGA 2011 socket is supposed to come apart? It looks like there are 4 hex-type screws holding the hold-down plate to the backplate, but I don't know if there's more to it and I don't know the size of bit I'd need. Edit: Words are hard, bad autocorrect doesn't help.

    SSD Temporary Lockup

    Hello [H] Members! I've been having an odd issue with the SSD boot drive on my server. The drive is a Sandisk Z400s, and every once in a while (maybe once an hour, it's all over the place) the system will just lock up and the HDD activity light on the case will light up solid. When the system...
