I just read through your recovery guide and I'd tried it all except moving the CPU fan to a different header.

It made me laugh when I read the sections that are highlighted in red. I did what was not recommended and now look where I am. I figure it was probably pooched anyway.

I'm going to try looking at the bright side;

1/ I learned several things from this process,

2/ I get to really dig in and try modify a mobo (practice for hard modding in the future, I love to tinker)

3/ I get to shop for a new Mobo.

Got to try to see the positive in things.

I agree, they need to make a real foolproof way of recovering.

Once again thanks everyone it was a valiant effort.
