Question about MSI K8N Neo4-F Motherboard
For a board to keep popping a power supply there is probably a fault in the installation of the board.
Make sure you only have the board stand off / risers / mounting pegs in line with the holes that are meant for them in the case.
Putting a metal post in the wrong place can blow the board and power supply or worse.
On occasion and more so in cheaper cases the holes may not be in the exact proper place.
To overcome that you can use the fibre washers that come with the screw kit for that case.
these would need to be sat on top of the posts and then the board very carefully placed back in the case without knocking thee washers off.
Super-glue works ! but don't use anything conductive !
Also make sure you use the correct screws to mount the board.
These tend to be the ones with a domed head.
If you still have problems you may have pooched the board.
