AMD RX 480 DID NOT brick my motherboard. Water leak? - Page 5

post #41 of 164
Well, I have had two 480's in crossfire clocked at 1330/2200 and 1300/2100 since June 29th. No Issues at all. I have an MSI Z87-GD65 with an i3-4150 cpu and a Corsair RM 850x PSU.

My longest play time was 4 hours at 4K in Dark Souls 3 at max settings. I'm getting a sold 50 - 60 FPS.

Don't quote me on this but if I remember correctly, GPU-Z was reporting a peak power draw of ~209W (GPU1 - 1330/2200) and 198W (GPU2 - 1300/2100) after those 4 straight hours of gameplay.

I would like to point out the fact that if the GPU isnt talking to the MB/CPU at all, or its not getting power/signals from the PCIE controller, the card will turn the fan on FULL SPEED. So im pretty skeptical

So from what I understand, you didn't have the card in the PCIe 2.0 x16_1 slot (beige) to begin with as it is recommended in the motherboard manual. Did you have the old card in the same slot?

Anyway, I have killed a few motherboards in the past and when they die--there is no power, no lights, nothing. On the other hand, I have burned up transistors/mosfets only to see the MB post and even overclock like a champ. Motherboards are made to last.

I would double check the pins on each PCI-E power connector. The fact that the GPU fans are not spinning up says a lot.

That cpu_led blink means it's something wrong with cpu, try another cpu if you have or test the card on another system.

Or even reset bios settings back to stock... which I do not think has been suggested yet.

I have had some odd issues with my 970/990FX boards over the years..
Like switching PSU and then no post till bios settings where put to default.
Switching case fans, then no post till default.
optical drives, HDDs etc..

Probably due to a partially unstable OC or something in my case?
But CMOS jumper/battery clear always fixed it.

Like others said, Reset cmos/remove battery and let sit. Install old GPU and possibly reseat CPU if you're up to it.


Check motherboard 24 pin for damage and check PCI-e slots for junk. Sometimes removing a card thats been in a slot fo a long time can dislodge dust and it gets in the slot.

I am also doubtful of this. The card at idle pulls like 60 watts. Like others have said sometimes a chanage in hardware is enough to trigger the failure of an already aging stressed component.

Ive shut down PCs and gone to bed, woke up to PCs completely dead.

There are mobos besides Intel ones? lachen.gif

can you share a few pics?
post #49 of 164
Thread Starter 
IDK how pics will help, there's no observable physical damage or smell anywhere. I snapped a few just because, but it was very early this morning, so not the best.






After sitting all night with power disconnected and battery removed, I tried to boot this morning, and the CPU LED went off! Short lived w00t as the board still failed to POST, and upon every reboot, the CPU LED stayed on. I'm at a loss. This is too the last resort, point of no return. I will be gutting this system tonight and testing it on air cooling outside the tech station on the only (junk) spare PSU I have.

Maybe I can find a replacement board for a few bucks, as in, like, $12...

Find some inexpensive CPU may sempron 145 and see if it will pass CPU post
