Out of all the theories on what the cause is, what you just said has to be the worst one of them all

Plenty of info out on this already. Power limits are not being respected by New World for some reason, and mosfets/phases are literally exploding due to overvoltage. OCP is not kicking in properly, etc.

It's poor board design and poor overcurrent protection. Nothing to do with heat, but power/wattage and power delivery.
