AMD RX 480 DID NOT brick my motherboard. Water leak? - Page 3

Do you still have the RX 480?

I've seen some ~15 year old DFI boards that have been terribly abused, but were good as new after replacing a few caps, while the nearly six year old X58A-UD5 in my secondary system has survived a half dozen CPUs and GPUs as well as three PSUs without any signs of wear.

That said, I'll be hesitant to put an RX 480 into a board I don't consider expendable for it's first run, unless it's a board that has supplemental PCI-E power...at least until more information/testing is forthcoming.

I like the blue PCB Gigabyte boards; the lacquer they use almost serves as a use meter...it turns green, then brown, as the hours of heavy load built up.

Hard to tell what's been done with all the black PCB boards out there...they look new until capacitors or fets explode/burn.

I almost stopped reading after seeing 990FX well there goes your problem. You say you didn't even load the GPU which means it didn't pull any high power. It's just one after the other RX 480 killed my AMD mobo, strange isn't it, never an Intel mobo dying. Maybe there goes your clue to get something more decent. How on earth does an unloaded GPU kill a mobo is beyond me. Smells like yet another marketing campaign.

"Military grade" doesn't really mean anything, out of certain, rather specific, contexts.

Just marketing babble.

Most boards lack supplemental PCI-E power, especially the sort of boards that you'd expect to see used with mid-range GPUs.

My 990FX Gigabyte UD7 has a connector for extra power. It is a SATA power connector. Surprisingly my Asus RVE has a molex connector and the RIVE has a five pin fan looking thing.

When it comes to GPUs, I'm an nVidia fan. Ive only used 5850 and 5870 AMD cards, but I've had a ton of nVidia cards. Wanted to break the cycle after all these years, and welp. Refund and no new mobo for a long time for me it is...

No coincidence my badass favorite mobo of all time just happen to die after GPU swap. The RX 480 didnt boot first time I tried, had to swap to pci-e closest to CPU. Boot, I installed driver, restart, and nothing. Board attempted a POST, and since haven't had a lick of activity.

Are my systems not showing by my signature?

Yeah, it turns on, the GPU fan spins a sec, sometimes not at all. To me, it feels like the board is failing to initialize a major component, like the CPU. I just double checked all PSU connectors and mobo connectors. The CPU LED just stays on, but weird thing, the VGA LED doesn't come on at all, and that LED stays on during entire POST until just before it starts to boot Windows. So IDK.

I'm hearing a hissing sound from near the northbridge. Cant pinpoint where sound is coming from, but its in the VGA / NB area of this mobo. Sounds like a failing choke from experience. Thing is, nothing is getting hot in the area I can make out the sound. Stressed...

Oh no, i had just read in the 939 Club that you got it delivered today. frown.gif
Well, did you try using your old GPU?
I mean, how could a brand new GPU kill a known working motherboard in that way? Without even one single warning...

EDIT: IIRC, in ASUS boards with LED Error indicators, when POSTing, if a LED remains on (and you don't pass POST) it means that the component that corresponds to that LED is not working right (that would mean that there's something wrong with your CPU according to the board).
Also, have you tried one of those PCI 7-segment POST diagnose cards? If you have one it might be a good idea trying it.
