Reports of RX 480 damaging PCI-E slots - Page 2  

post #11 of 139
The 8 pins from the PSU are a lot more resilient than the thin PCIE slot and good PSUs can push a lot more than 150w through a 8 pin lead.

If you pay attention you may even notice the sign of literal burn on motherboard.

Point it out, I dont see anything burned on the MB.

Actually, the 6 pin connector can push the exact same amperage an 8 pin cable can. The 8-pin PCI-E's do not have any extra wires for power at all, they simply have an ability for the PSU to sense the voltage drop under load and deliver proper power so the official spec limit is higher since the drop can be compensated for.
Also, some cables are made of 18 ga. wire and some use 16 ga. wires, so saying that no matter what the limit is "n" is incorrect, as the limit is based on wire gauge. Either way, both the cables and the slot can handle far more than the spec says, people do it all the time.

I may see wrong, but i am positive area between battery and second PCI-E x16 slot looks suspicious as hell.

When people see these PCIe overdraw threads on forums, it's just a matter of time when someone's claiming their board died because of it. rolleyes.gif It's far more likely it's either just trolling, or a completely different reason their board died, or they were doing something they weren't supposed to and fried their board and try to find something else to blame.

The problem with saying what you are is that the issue was observed by 3rd party review sites. At this point it is pretty much confirmed that the initial batch of 480s are out of spec, and while higher tier boards might handle that, the average board may not. Given that AMD is targeting about as average as you can get with the 480, it isn't a stretch to see an issue.

I understand that but where is the proof that PCIe cannot exceed 75w without burning out, I mean I can understand if there was degradation over time. PCIe death via RX480 is just an LOL

"Another motherboard has been destroyd by the stuff amd has created. Thanks for this. You will hear soon of me and my lawyer.
Cheers"

Yeah right buddy. Love the tough talk and never a actual follow up.
