no guide recommends this, your voltage was probably sky-high.

Because I'm inexperienced. Duuuhhhhhh.

Not complaining, lesson learned.

If MOBO auto overvoltage is the culprit, I personally suspect VTT killed the CPU. VTT has been proven time and time again deadly for CPU's, even deadlier than excessive VCore itself.

For instance, 45nm CPUS would sometimes survive 1.6V benchmarking sessions but they would die to slightly elevated VTT and CPU PLL voltages.

Does the VTT based off the vcore when manually inputted?

simply put, when I manual input "1.250" voltage for my CPU, is the VTT basing off that as-well or for 100% safety, do I have to enter a manual VTT voltage as-well?

I find it strange an auto overclock from the mobo murder the CPU and then commit suicide. Specially when it happened after using ASUS own overclocking tool.
I know the AUTO setting can be - and are -, higher than necessary. But, the voltage is based in the algorithms implemented in the BIOS by the programmer. I find it hard the programmer to make such a mistake.
The only ASUS board I own was 10 years ago, for an AThlon XP so, I can't say much about their BIOS. But, I owned three high-end Gigabyte boards in the past 5 years and I used their EasyTune tool when I was learning how to overclock skt, 1366 and I NEVER has a problem. Yes, the voltages were way above the necessary but, nevertheless, were pretty safe.

Anyways, whatever you do to RMA the hardware, DON'T SAY YOU OVERCLOCK IT! Just say "It died! Why? I don't know why. That's your job to know; you're the technician!" You are not lying. You really don't know what happened, do you?

FYI... I ended up reaching out to intel and doing the regular warranty... and it looks like a replacement is on the way!!!

Thank God. Looks like my headache over this is over.

Sold the old mobo for a fraction of the cost. Just happy it actually sold despite the socket being burnt out. I'm sure they'll try to replace it.


Thanks for the replies here! Really appreciate the help.
