Short story...

I received a Asus Dark Knight gts-250 and I used it for a while and one day it just quit working and the rig would not post. after a day or 2 I contacted Asus for an RMA of the card. It was accepted. While I was waiting I decided to "bake" the card and see if I could fix it and save everyone a little money...

It worked and I called Asus back and told them what I did and I fixed the card. They still offered to RMA it...I still have the card and it still works and if it does again I will still RMA it.

thats just how good they are....
I called ASUS and informed them of my situation, the two guys I talked to and described my problem to, both said they would fix it but now that an employee at the store I took it to, damaged the board they won't touch it.

P.S. They only told me to take it back to the store because the board is so new and they wanted to get me a new board ASAP and the store should have replaced it and sent the damaged one to ASUS to be repaired.

Call them back again and just say the store refuses to take it back...you have your receipt and want to RMA the board...

if you have to Escolate the call to a manager or a rep..I havent had any issue getting boards fixed or replaced.

Its the fact that the store has a warranty (30 days, first 15 days is a direct replacement) and they refused to honour it AND DAMAGED MY board. I don't believe that ASUS should have to fix damaged caused by someone else.

Are there anymore in the CPU VRM area ?

If you can t do the warranty or RMA just dismantle the VRM heatsink and take a look ,if you have nothing to loose of course.

The two I can see are close to what I believe to be the VRM.

Where on the motherboard did it burn? CPU VRM area (left of socket)? Elsewhere? Did it burn in the presence of a NIKOS MOSFET?

It is burnt near a fan socket which is to the right of the CPU socket. The closest mosfet is like 1 and a half inches from the fan socket.

Did you plug a high amperage fan into the fan header?

No. The header was empty. I read some reviews on Tigerdirect.ca and similar occurrences have happened to others (the burnt traces) and they had their board replaced.
