Gigabyte Aorus Ultra Gaming X470 bios problems

Kumiko

10 months ago

The first mobo I got ended up having a tiny chip burst into flames so I got another.

Now, it booted up ONCE into the bios, and does nothing now except run the CPU fan.

I've tested the RAM and video card in my old PC and it is compatible. Can't be the CPU or it would've never booted in the first place and there's no behavior indicating it's the PSU.

I've searched for hours on how to fix this and nothing has worked. I can't seem to access the backup bios either.

Any help at all is greatly appreciated. I've spent over $2,000 on this now and don't want it to be wasted.

I got ended up having a tiny chip burst into flames so I got another.

Well, what chip was it?

It could be very well possible that the CPU got damaged only because of that.

Actually what does spin and what not?

Except the CPU fan, does the GPU, PSU and Case fans spin?

Have you connected the EPS 8-pin CPU connector into the board?

That PSU has 2x (4+4) EPS CPU connectors.

And the double 8 pin power connectors from the PSU to the GPU?

That PSU has 4x (6+2) PCI-e power connectors for the GPU.

Can it be, that you have connected (somehow) the (6+2) PCI-e connector from the PSU to the board instead of the CPU 8-pin (4+4) one?

No, I'm certain everything is plugged in correctly. Only the CPU fan and the psu fan will spin. The rest do nothing. No idea what chip and I looked through the motherboard booklet as well as the internet for answers and everything points to the bios being corrupt
