Need a control board...

Well my Ramps 1.4 has taken a side on my Simple Wood 1405, which the Arduino Mega 2560 blew out an impressive amount of "Magic Smoke" and parts glowed that shouldn't glow, for an unknown reason. Was powered by the adapter board, I think can be fixed, but wondering if anyone has any Printrboards they aren't using? Original was Rev F4, so as long as compatible, I am not worried about the version. Also thought of trying to buy new driver chips for my R4 board, pretty sure that's what blew. Thanks.

A new clone Mega 2560 is about $15 on Amazon, probably half that on eBay with the 7 to 60 day overseas shipping. Ramps 1.4 boards are under $10, also on Amazon. A combo with processor, ramps, drivers, and other goodies around $30 from Mr. Bezos's money machine

I am going to try and fix my ramps system later, for now I got a replacement Rev F4 board thanks to RetireeJay. Thanks for the help.. I will remember that info for later use on my 2nd 3d printer.
