Well to start things off

I built a computer 4 days ago, got everything in place. Start it up, monitor has no VGA support, going into sleep mode. I bought the motherboard from MSI, after I had to return my 680i LT back to XFX for the third time, and I finally just gave up. The first one I got from them caught fire and I am afraid it has fried my CPU, or my ram, or hell even both. I get no beeps when I start up, I have swapped cards, slots, monitors, ram, even booted with no ram, swapped CMOS batteries and still no display. I have added some extra thermal paste and re snapped down the CPU, which about 10 minutes ago it made an extra snug sound, after I booted it up. I have also dissembled it and put it on top with just the CPU, ram, PSU, and the card.... Guess what thats right another disappointment. I am really just getting pissed off at this computer. I don't think it would be the motherboard as everything else is running just fine. I also have a PSU tester and it passes I get all green lights and it is setting stable Voltages. I hope someone can help.

Just because your power supply passed a test with a tester that does
not mean its good enough for your system. What brand is that psu?
A video card catching fire! Ive assembled many machines, I have
never had a video card catch fire, any card for that matter, that is
scarey. When you installed the board in the case did you use the
brass or plastic standoffs provided? If you used six standoffs did you
screw in six screws, you have to be very careful as not to short out
the board with a wayward standoff.
If you set the board up outside of the case, and pulled the ram,
and got no beeps, I would say after all of this the mobo is kaput.
No telling how much if any voltage surged through the board when
the video card caught fire.

check you have the correct amount of paste too much is as bad as not enough
http://www.arcticsilver.com/arctic_s...structions.htm
turn the computer off
remove the power lead from the back
take the side off
remove the cmos battery
move the cmos jumper from pins 1 and 2 to pin 2 and 3 and the back to pins 1 and 2
replace the battery
put the side on
replug in the power lead
boot the computer

I said my XFX motherboard shorted out and caught fire, not my graphics card. I also do have standoffs they come standard on my case on the Antec 900. I bought another PSU after that so it isn't the original one. And it's an Ultra Products X2 Modular Connect PSU.

Sorry for my confusion. Just because the standoffs come standard with
the case does not mean they are in the right place. Just a thought.

Hey guess what! I had that happen to me too!
My XFX 680i LT SLI Mobo caught on fire on the upper right corner.
I am using PC Power & Cooling 750 Watt to power my 8800GT (I was planning to install another 8800GT).
I am not an experienced builder... This is only my thrid time...
But I took every precaution and made sure I followed the instructions correctly.

Apparently, You and I are not the only ones. I found some other people who bought this motherboard and theirs caught on fire as well.

I hope my CPU is not fried..
