Hi all, I just recently built an HTPC unit with the following components...
Antec Black Fusion Case
EVGA Motherboard e-7150/630i GPU with HDMI and Optical Out
Intel Core 2 Duo 2.3 Mhz
2 x 1G Corsair RAM
Baracuda 500GB SATA HDD
The problem I'm having is this, after putting everything together it worked flawlessly for about 1 week. Then, one day it didn't want to boot. It kept re-booting continuously without even posting and on board 7 segment display reading '88'. I swapped PS and RAM but same symptoms. I then had EVGA send me out a new board, plugged it in and it worked... for about 2 hours. Then I had to re-boot, this time it isn't re-booting continuously, but still hanging on 88 and not even posting. I have heard that the Antec Power Supplies are not the greatest, could it be the cause of my mobo failures??? Has anyone ever owned an EVGA mobo with these issues?

Thanks in advance...

I must admit that I've never heard of this problem before. What you should do is have your PSU checked specifically, so you'll find out if it's frying your mobo with unnatural spikes. In fact, take your entire rig in for such a measurement, because this is one odd thing indeed.
