Hi

The cpu looks to be ok. There is a chip on the
motherboard that is melted. It seems
to be near the north bridge chipset

Go to MSI's website and the information you will need will be there.

Whoa, sorry to hear about your board! It seems strange that it would fry at only 1.5v with an H50... I feel partially at fault for leading you to your board's death.

Same thing actually happened to me before as well, but I had gone up to 1.57v-1.6v (though it happened when I lowered it back down to 1.45v) and that was before getting my H50.

As for the RMA process, you don't have to say you were overclocking, but just state that your VRMs are fried and they will replace it for you. You can go to the MSI website and register your motherboard and request a RMA with them. After they approve you, all you have to do is ship it to them.

For future reference: your northbridge temp, it should be the Aux temp in HWMonitor, Temp2 in Speedfan. Everest reports a different temp that is more related to your CPU-NB than your actual northbridge, so before replacing the pink sticky gunk temps are usually around 45-55C. I used AS-5 and get about 30-35C during the winter, 33-40C in the summer.

Good luck!

Hi,

Its not your fault, these things happen.

I am having problems removing the Corsair H50 backplate from the motherboard the backplate is held on by sticky pads but I cant seem to remove them. I have tried several times to remove it but I dont wont to use to much force. Will they accept it back with the Corsair h50 backplate and if I include the original AMD3 backplate with it as well?



Please can someone let me know,

Thanks

I had that same problem, just take off the H50 backplate, you might not get it back.
