Setup a new system at the end of December. B550 mobo, ryzen 7 3700x and a 3060ti. After just over a months use the GIGABYTE B550 AORUS mobo died. 17 days outside of the return window.......:mad:

There are no visual signs of damage like burn marks, broken connectors, etc. Worked last night and not today. CPU, ram and GPU on a 450 board so of course its the board.

Anyone have any troubleshooting tips for that particular board in case it can be revived?

***Update- 2/23*** There is a mega thread on the issues around these boards here -> https://www.reddit.com/r/Amd/comments/lnmet0
Turning the Global C State to disabled in Bios fixed the issue so far with mine vs most people having to revert there PCI to gen 3. Hope this helps

If all the other parts work on a different board...None offhand... RMA time.

Does it have QFlash? Not sure if it doesn't turn on dead or throws codes (what exact B550 Aorus board? There are several)

Will not turn on at all!

Update - Found a temp fix that worked for a guy on a reddit thread. Pulled the battery (cmos reset) and it fired back up. I know this cannot be a permanent fix but what does resetting that disgnose about what is wrong with the board?

Nice! Love it when the basics take care of things! :thup:

Not much. It could have fixed the issue... who knows. Time will tell at this point.

Going to work on securing another board as I do not have a warm fuzzy about this situation. :eek:

Had time today to replicate the failures. About 3/4 power cycles through win OS and it dies. Pull battery for a minute, replce, powers right up. Not cool. About to go into chat with customer service so wish me luck.

If pulling the battery sets it right again for awhile then it sounds like some kind of bios issue. Is it dual bios board by any chance?
