    I will keep you guys posted.
    Ahh beware using "AUTO" at such high overclocks! The BIOS, I believe, attempts to scale things up linearly. AUTO is good and fine usually for the modest overclock but at 4.1Ghz you must take important voltages into your own hands. If it scaled your IOH voltage up too high I can imagine why this may happen.

    I agree that the board burning up is strange, there are usually better failsafes to prevent physical damage. I don't think RMA should give you too much trouble. They may not believe what your settings were though stranger things have happened: I remember long ago a PII board I had burned up for no reason. Ended up a stray screw was stuck on the board and shorted the thing out!

    I will pay attention to the "Auto" setting next time.

    And I already had boards shorted by bad contacts with the case or a lose screw. But in this case I assembled the system on the table for testing before putting it inside the case.

    Again, thanks all for your replies.
