    wait so lighting fried the surge suppressor didnt fry the psu which is weird[maybe a sign of a badly built psu that allows a spike like that] but hit the motherboard which i cant figure out why it didnt take out everthing that was attached to it signs of a well build board? anyways sorry to here that hopefully you can get your rig back up shortly but hey it could be worse you could have lost the whole rig

    The house got hit? Maybe the surge passed through the ethernet cable and into the ethernet port? Does it have that?

    Actually, I have heard of this happening. There are two paths, it is possible for the surge to pass through the ethernet port as was suggested, and that will indeed destroy the motherboard alone, however, I would open up your PSU to see if there is any internal damage. A PSU can SAY its working while in reality its surge suppressors are trashed to hell. Weird things happen like that, Ive had things like GPUs do similar things where ALL of the capacitors on the board pop and the damn thing still runs. Power regulation can sometimes be bypassed.

    I have mentioned the issues with PSUs before. If you are hoping for the fuse to blow before it takes out a board or CPU, you will be a fool. I work on PSUs all the time and the fuses are never blown. The best thing to do is get a UPS with surge protection or get a surge protector that has a rating og 1000 joules or better. I perfer 2000 joules. The one I am currently using is 2600 joules. Most of these come with protection warranties as well. So if you equipment is still zapped they will pay for it. Just make sure you register your surge protector as soon as you get it home.

    I guess some of this was already asked but was the system on a surge protector? And was the Cat5 ehernet cable hooked through it or directly into the computer? Thats the only way I would think it would take out the board only! My 2 cents worth just curious?

    the good thing about living in a country where all the poweroutlets are always grounded and alle buildings have a surgeprotector is that this usually can't happen

    "lol, bestbuy", I am not really a retail store person. I hate being in public places. I like to actually see products before I buy them 99% the time. So let say this. bestbuy will match prices with just about anyone and you can have it shipped to their store or your home. I choose the store. I'll go inspect it when it comes and if I don't like it they deal with the return shipping ect, ect. When it comes to cpu products there are so many reviews everywhere you pretty much know what your getting if you did your homework before purchase.
