New Server – ARRRRRrRRRRRrrrrggggghhHH!

I’m on my 4th MOTHERBOARD with the new server, this one I got running last night, it ran all night but crashed at 10:17AM, not the end of the world as I’d not completely dialed in the operating parameters yet, but I powered it down and back up to reboot since it was hung and a puff of smoke came out and that was that.  Some component failed in a spectacular manner.

I have since learned that the Gigabyte board did not boot because it needs a BIOS upgrade for this CPU, so I’m going to re-install it, install the BIOS upgrade and send this Assmoke back to Asrock for repair.
