I'm not having a good week so far..lol...I was preping to install my 780i for wc when I noticed a small burnt section at the botton left corner close to the SPDIF connector, I guess what I want to know is would affect the rest of how the board works? To top it off I had just installed the back plate for the water block and can't remove it cleanly in order to use it again so now I'll have to order a new sticky pad.

I managed to save the back plate so I'm going to clean it up and use the stock hsk and hook it up to test it as best I can to see what happens.

Have you been using it all along with this burnt section there? Although having a burnt mobo is not nice, if it was working before it should work now!

After some testing and a conversation with an evga tech looks like the board is headed for rma land, so I figured another 4-6 weeks I might have a replacement, oh well, what can ya do.:blarg::whistle:

You're doing the right thing.

you're not the first person I hear with an eVGA motherboard issue involving burnt chips / resistors. I honestly would steer clear from eVGA motherboards, that's me.......
