So, I stepped out for a few min.. upon entering, my room smelt like smoke. I look, my rig is off.. I check the insides, I see nothing wrong. Motherboard LEDs are lit, so, I crossed my fingers and hit the power button. I heard a click, but nothing. I ended up removing my ASUS R9 290 DirectCU II, I hit the button and everything turned on and all is working smooth. I inspected the card, I see a little smoke but def a harsh smell of smoke from one specific part of the card. Well, this sucks lol I guess this gives me the chance to get something newer. This sucks.
