Welcome to the club

If its possible try to replace the mobo with the A85x-itx. I see that you have a Streacom case (passive cooling, no case fan to move air around, no heatsink to Vrm-> very bad for this motherboard)

Streacom - tiny fanless casing? Check.
Cable clutter? Check.

Wonder if there was any overclocking/overvolting done too?

Just wow, condolences. redface.gif

Stock settings, this was a always on file server / hd media player set-up running arch linux. AMD A series A4-5300 under maximum load was getting up to 62.5 C, mobo 40-45C.

I walked into the room this morning and I was like: "Someone was cooking electronics", I couldn't locate the smell and it looked like the computer was on as usual as power light was on. But then I noticed there was no display, so I opened the case and to my surprise there it was....

Then I googled Asrock FM2A75M-ITX, and the first predictive google result was Asrock FM2A75M-ITX fire.....

Shocking morning.

Do also read this post in my A85 ITX thread regarding someone's Trinity rig power consumption under different OS, might interest you too.

Fedex lost my replacement motherboard which was shipped over 2 weeks ago, and I have to chase everyone down. This sucks. Going to buy an ASUS/Intel combo.

New revision for FM2A75M-ITX from Asrock.

http://www.asrock.com/mb/AMD/FM2A75M-ITX%20R2.0/

the only obvious defference is memory speed support. Didn't notice anything else.

Yeah, I think their initial claim that memory up to 2666mhz was a bit optimistic, and likely caused a few of the burnouts.
post #138 of 181
But did they need to change revision for this ? A simple bios update should do the trick.

The only likely change on the motherboard itself will be the writing claiming it supports superfast RAM.
post #140 of 181
Perhaps they changed the MOS-FETs to something with lower RdsON. That should fix their burning issues.
