AMD RX 480 DID NOT brick my motherboard. Water leak? - Page 2

post #11 of 164
We have to keep in mind that AMD MBs are PCIE 2.0. What about over-current protection?

If the card was never loaded, I'm highly doubtful that the RX480 PCI-E slot power draw issue was culprit here. Could well be an unfortunate coincidence, with the board failing due to some other reason.

MB just had a timer. They come with 5 years warranty and self destruct right after warranty is done.

Almost feel like people are using RX 480 as the reason. There are 100s of RX 480s sold and PC parts die all the time. Because this issue is so fresh people are pointing fingers.

A common practice is just making a product so that i breaks by itself. A timer could get them sue-ed if somebody found out.
Still it might be that way.

True - its always amazing to me when these big complicated boards keep chugging for 5+ years.

No moving parts really so the only thing is heat cycling and mechanical stress (due to coolers, mounting and card sag)
Considering they are nowadays all produced by nice pick and place machines and no longer by Chinese people soldering them with a heat gun and tweezers or worse flux, solder and a soldering iron. redface.gif

Nowadays however lead free solder and lead free solder paste is still something that worries many people into electronics.

This, I dont see how the card is going to draw enough slot-power upon boot that would be enough to go over spec and kill the board.

Sabertooth for AMD CPU is not much of a military grade at my R2.0 has already gone on board audio and CHA_fan4.
