    FG stands for Frame Ground which is used mainly in insulated transformers.

    OK, well after about about an hour of playing with the PSU and hooking it all up with the grund and 5v rails (great soldering job, Im very proud) I go flip the switch, lites come on.......
    but there are too many!!!
    hoping its just a default, plug in 2 systems and ..........
    nothing.
    dead.

    How does flipping a circuit break do such damage?

    Sounds strange to me.

    Because sometimes as the power dies (and this does take time even in a routine shutdown but at least that is controlled) certain parts can draw harder on the current as it dies causin' excessive heat and then if the specs of a certain one of these parts (usually quite small) are borderline in manufacture then they will tend to burnout usually burnin' the PCB at the same time.
