I bought a new one unfortunately instead of RMA back when I was having problems and replacing parts which is why this has been so frustrating. Its also why Im concerned Im doing something wrong during installation. Not sure what I could have done to damage it though as I said Ive been carefulAre you sure they replaced it, and didn't just send the same one, or another one with a problem, back to you? ASUS is VERY bad about not replacing with new hardware, and sending used replacement units. It's very possible that you recieved a "refurbished" board that was nothing of the sort, simply used. I'd tell ASUS that you already had the board replaced once, and you still have problems, but they are different ones now, and that you want a new replacement, not a used or refurbished board. Or a refund so you can buy something different.
Would you say its a low risk that a damaged component could mess up a new board?If you put standoffs where they belong, then no, I doubt any of your other components are compromised but obviously it's hard for me to say without having it in front of me to know.
Its hard to isolate and test for the issue as it happens normally after an extended time gaming (multiple hours) or if I leave a game on, I will notice hours later that the system froze.Honestly, I wouldn't really even worry about it unless the problem was bad enough that it was obvious, like a component that visibly smokes your hardware.
But again, I'm not there. I don't really know what has gone on.
Right now anything from the board is fine and it's something else to some completely faulty component could be on the table.
I mean, if the system works perfectly fine when you tested it on the bench, then the chances are there isn't even anything wrong with it. I'd probably actually just try it all on the bench and then run it that way to see if there are any issues at all. Actually USE it with it in the bench format. If it works fine, then get the standoffs, put it together correctly WITHOUT any standoffs installed in the case motherboard tray where they shouldn't be and go from there.
Thank you for the help. This has been such an annoying issue but ive learned alot from itI've seen a LOT of graphics cards that were failed directly out of the box. Don't EVER rule out ANY piece of hardware being faulty, whether it's one day old or ten years old.
