  1. trouble started today... fan was whining so checked it and rebooted, got some bad beeps(7 then 1 long 2 short i think), rebooted again and it booted fine but fan was barely turning so powered off and bought new fan, put it in... started booting, fan started, it was checking drives and then just powered off...

    took the opportunity to get new case and power supply and put everything together again... same problem

    disconnected all but the motherboard... same problem

    would love to hear that this could be something other than a fried mobo...
