My RVE died last Friday, system rebooted then smoke came out of the PCB audio port area. Had to immediately shutdown the power to the office.
I was hoping to keep it until the next big thing but it's a fire hazard now. Sending it in for RMA.
Upon further inspection, the CPU pins nearly fried themselves and my CPU, but I was able to wipe off the burn marks and it works in my replacement board.
I'll most likely move over to MSI for the remainder of the X99 life cycle.
