Intel 12x00 series Alder lake

It does take extra time for sure. That’s why not asking anyone for it. No urgency anyways.
 
Yeah. Reverse polarity from the capacitor seems like a big mistake. Looks like it's only a small batch of boards though.
 
Oh great, just my luck. :rolleyes: Can't confirm the orientation of the capacitor in my board now since I'm out of town for the week, but my system has been up and running for two days without a hitch.
 
If it has the inverted capacitor, shut the machine down and contact ASUS. I'd imagine we'll see RMAs from this.
 
Just got my wife to stick her phone in there and snap a pic. Bit fuzzy, but pretty sure it's in the right orientation.

This. Shut the thing down even if it’s in sleep mode. Don’t want that burning up especially when you’re not home.
 
No one has made a joke of this yet? :lol: :p

:lol:
Wife's vagine is fine!

I think I got lucky with this one. The mb I mean. I can definitely make out the 6.3V marking on my chip and it is facing the right way. Will need official confirmation hopefully this week from ASUS confirming this is infact the problem. What a nightmare this must be to people though. Burning stuff next to your precious ddr5 ram that one probably paid good money to a scalper can't be good. I'd also hate to rip everything apart again to do a motherboard rma. GPU fails, no problem, it pops in and out. MB? **** that. Took me the whole morning to install. lol...

Scary crap right there, I agree.
 
Problem affects units from a single production line in Vietnam. Someone is in BIG trouble... :runaway:
