Hi,

A few months ago, my motherboard was caught on fire, I didn't know what was the reason was, but it appears in an area where VRM is located. So, I thought, I lost all my hardware but when I bought some used motherboard to test all parts, it seems like everything is working fine.

I run a few hours on my RX 470 and looks fine.
SSD, HDD, RAM all working fine. No artifacts whatsoever.

So, this means my CPU dead?
When I turned on the PC with the CPU installed, everything spins but no post. But when I revert back to my backup CPU, everything post and it showed "new CPU installed".
