  1. Question Scratched/dented motherboard Vrm capacitor by cooler ?

    [SOLVED] ROG X570-E Gaming VRMs very hot

    I just built a new high-end pc (Ryzen 9 3900x, etc) with the Asus ROG X570-E Gaming motherboard. I built it with an open-air case and an AIO water cooler, so there's really no airflow over the motherboard. Today I noticed that the VRM heatsinks are almost too hot to touch, and I can feel the...

    Hello, A few months ago I bought a PNY GTX1070Ti blower edition for a good price. I've used this GPU in many games and it works very well except for the noisy (I fixed the fan curve to higher RPMs, that makes it even noisier), so I purchased a GPU cooler, Arctic Accelero Extreme III. I...

    [SOLVED] Did overclocking damaged the motherboard?

    Hello, I have a failing graphics card so I started digging in my computer and found something else too.
