  1. Yes, that title is correct. I've experienced TWO fried Gigabyte Aorus X399 Extreme motherboards using an AX1600i as the PSU. Each one failed after about six months of use. Both failed in the same manner and under minimal usage (at the time of failure). The same component failed on both boards - an electronic component near the AMD X399 chipset IC had a meltdown. I've now switched to an ASRock X399 (Fatal1ty) Professional Gaming MB. Hopefully this one doesn't fail in ~6 months. I'm unsure what type of electronic component fried (resistor?) but I've attached pictures. One of the reasons I chose the Gigabyte board over other X399 TR4 boards was that it has 2x4+4 CPU power connections as opposed to 1x4+4 and 1x4 CPU power connections and I wanted an MB that supported CPUs that may demand more power (like the 2990WX). I wonder now if the board's design is defective and doesn't follow AMD recommendations because it is the only one I found that offers more CPU power input. Anyway, if anyone has had a similar experience or any knowledge they can offer I'd appreciate it. Thanks!
