I'm in Canada and I believe the problem didn't happen due to the
electrical supply. As per my earlier message the mobo (at least) seems
to be toasted at this point.

I agree with your suggestion on memory. I thought that I would
underclock it to match my older DDR3 RAM which is 1333 with the new one
(1600). The easiest way would have been same brand and same specs.
