OK guys, here's one for you. Got a MSI Gaming Plus board with the 7600k processor inside a NZXT S340 case which someone dropped off at my job. It powers up, goes to the bios screen, but when I connect a hard drive the sata power cable heats up and starts smoking. I took the power supply out a perfectly functioning computer, hooked up another hard drive and it did the same thing. What could be the problem. First power supply was a EVGA 750 GQ and the second was a Seasonic.
