I;ve got a response from ASRock about combination: no fan + bios screen
Quote:
Thanks for contacting ASRock.



We test FM2A75M-ITX with FM2 5800K.

We install a cooler on CPU and remove CPU fan.

Enter BIOS about 3 hours and didn't see the symptom.


We recommend you to use air fan to try.

Well, recommendation is nice, but what i should do with a damaged board... Burn another one and record a video? mad.gif

That's an awesome reply, especially because they're failing even at engrish.

This morning I found a nice mail. ASRock Taiwan will forward my damage compensation claims to ASRock Europe, and meanwhile they've asked me to pack the board with all of its accessories and print a copy of my purchase receipt.

I'd really love it if they solved this, as I was very happy with my ASRock boards, and this one has been a complete disaster.

Hi guys, I owned a FM2A75-ITX for about 1 day, and the exact same issue discussed in this post happened to me !

Had running with Windows 7 for about 6 hours total. Mainboard was emitting an almost inaudible high pitched buzz sound almost the entire time it was running. Was barely noticeable at all, so I ignored it. This system was paired with A10-5700 APU, and 2x4gb DDR3 1600mhz. (8gb).

After this 6 hours total of system run-time and shakedown, I re-entered bios, and used the Internet Flash feature to update the bios (alot easier than searching a manufacturer's website for flash rom and utility), that was great. BIOS Update suceeded. Rebooted. I spent another 10 minutes in bios or so, didn't change any of the voltage or overclocking settings, just mostly looking at the various features. I did make a few boot priority changes, but nothing else. Saved. Rebooted.
Enter Windows (Blue screen of death). Frozen computer.
4-sec power-off on power button.
Restart. Enter BIOS to monitor voltages, tempuratures. All normal it seemed, except, fans were running fast.
Restart. Black screen.
Power off.
Power on. Does not power on.
Power on. Does not power on.
Took case lid off.
Let sit for 10 minutes. Time to have a smoke break !
Come back inside. Power on. BOOOOOOM ! First chip explodes violently and loudly to a quick death. 2 seconds later, second chip buzzes and smokes heavily.

RMA'd today through the retailer (CanadaComputers), I guess I'll wait and see what happens. Really dissapointed though ..

There does indeed seem to be some bad batches of VRM / IC's on this board (or whatever they are called!) where the same thing is happening to so many people in a short period of time. (at least that we know of).

I'll update again when I recieve a response from retailer.

They replaced mine so I wouldnt worry if i were you. Also my cpu is throttling pretty bad so if i were you Id get an other board.

What do you think about adding Heatsinks to the VRMS? I've seen a pic of someone doing this from a google search of this issue.

also .. How do I get over that stupid 2 message per day limit ? mad.gif

Seems like the newer batches DO have thermal throttling incorporated, so adding heatsinks would indeed be a good practice.

About the message limit, I think it's to prevent spam from new members. I'm not sure how to overcome it, but it will go away as you post more.
