URGENT! Help ASUS motherboard spark and smoke - Page 2

post #11 of 14
Looks like a rather miscellaneous MOSFET on the side that took the blow (not the CPU VRM), perhaps aided by PSU overload of sorts

RMA it dude, doesnt matter what part of the board has failed. If something has burned out, as a general rule i never try and power it up again, its dangerous and can often harm other components. Count your blessings its still under warranty!
Don't risk just dealing with it, i may be fine now but a few months/weeks/days it could go again and maybe take your psu/cpu..etc with it.

Thanks everyone. I went through the RMA. I dropped it off myself at the ASUS service center. Talked to the guy at the front desk who seemed very helpful. I told him about the problem. He wrote it all down.

Crossing my fingers hoping the chip gets replaced properly.
