    My jtag xenon recently got rrod so I went ahead and did the x-clamp fix on it. When doing the x-clamp fix in order to hold the mobo and heat sinks down I screwed everything down to the xbox's metal case like in this tut: http://www.se7ensins.com/forums/topic/104275-how-to-fix-e-74-error-and-rrod-red-ring-of-death/ but like the idiot i am lol, I forgot to use some rubber washers. So when i plugged my xbox in and turned it on I heard a poping sound and now the power brick doesnt even turn on. I know i blew a fuse in the power brick so I added some rubber washers to the x-clamp fix so it wont blow a fuse ever again. But what im wondering is, do you guys think the mobo is damaged? or is it just the power brick thats dead? I want to make sure before I go spending $50 on a new power brick.

    Its the power brick trust me, EB games $40 if you plug the power bar in and the light does not even turn on its the brick.
