This build configuration ends up dying and I don't know what to do.

Hello,

A friend of mine keeps having his PC die on him. He has the following configuration:

 


 

CPU: Ryzen 9 5900X

CPU Cooler: Open loop liquid cooling(Corsair Hydro X Series XD5 RGB Pump/Reservoir Combo)

RAM: G. Skill Neo Trident Z 32GB 3600Mhz

Motherboard: ASUS X570 Crosshair VIII Dark Hero

GPU: Powercolor Red Devil 6750XT

PSU: HX1000(non-i)

 

 

For some reason, he's had two Dark Heros that burnt out twice and what's even weirder is that when the second Dark Hero died on him, it had the same burnt spot as the previous one. The burnt spot was on the back near the CPU. 

 

What could be the cause of this? He also said that he kept the BIOS up to date.

Looks like these motherboards had a large failure rate. Make sure any replacement board he gets has the new part number for the revision containing the fix.

the funny thing is if you read that thread, the V version is the one with the defects... even though first guy had the 0 (china) version...?

 

confusing to say the least,  but the conclusion is pretty clear, dont buy computer parts from Asus, simply.

 

(and that's mostly because of their apparently abysmal customer service)

It's a model failure, definitely.

But I wouldn't go with Powercolor GPUs either...
