Well, the motherboard is working fine. Seems like it really was just a weak component, Amazon have agreed to refund it.

I'm still perplexed as to how it could short and blow so thoroughly. At not point was it ever under load. My plan is to raise a case with Corsair about it, and see what they think, mostly just to get an answer. If they reckon it as just a dud then it can go back to Amazon.

And now I've just blown up a €550 Corsair AX1600i. Something is shorted, and I've no idea what it could be. It tripped the circuit board tripswitch, and fried the fuse on the PDU it was attached to. In a few days, after I'm done fuming, I'll begin the process of checking whether it killed any GPUs as well.


I have a spare ax1200 if you want it Spear.
It's old but still working afaik. In fact Ive a few of them salvaged from dead alienware boxes


Thanks for the offer. I won't accept though, as I don't know what killed it. When it died, the only thing connected to it, was two PCI-E 6 pin connectors, for the 10 watts needed by the board. If that took the brunt of the short, then I suspect it's fried out too, and I don't want to kill another PSU for now.

I'm pretty sure it's the same on that appeared in this LTT video:

So no real loss to be honest. Replacement should arrive tomorrow.

Well, I've taken a casualty. I tried to move my mining rig over to the GFN19 challenge, and it killed the cheap nasty PSU it had. New one ordered, but the guts of my processing power is down.

Well after wiping out on TdP, I instead just got my second ever mega prime.

Well, I got nothing this year, unlike the last two years. 11 GPUs wasn't enough to score even a GFN16 prime, just two double checks.

Got a doublecheck, so I'm now on the consolation prize table.


There's a few days left, so might as well see it through, although I'm starting to think GFN18 and SR5 may have been a bit ambitious ;)


I'll keep everything on it till the end.
