So I had to get the display board replaced.

After what my buddy told me about not stressing any of the boards I decided to do a complete new case. I figure maybe it only fried because somehow I compromised a board. As you see instead of mounting it to the case like he said, I mounted it to the panel; otherwise I took his advice. I think it's good; time will tell.
Coast long and prosper.
