Hoping someone can help with my 99% Dead RAMPAGE V Extreme board.
Background - bought from eBay (i know!)
Board condition - totally immaculate! - I have it stripped down to the bare board (all heatsinks removed) and there are no signs of cracking, torn tracks, swollen caps, nothing ...! looks perfect... i used a make-shift microscope to check it all. The CPU pins are also 100% perfectly aligned.
However, once plugged into a known working PSU Corsair AX860, the only leds that turn on are the ROG (centre heatsink - see pics) , and the LAN socket led flashes. Other than that, the board is dead.
I can tell you the bios chips are fine (cos I removed them and read them and wrote back newer bios files without any problem). So its not a bios issue. Just power.
Would appreciate any helpful suggestions as to how to get it up and running.
Such as , where to start checking it with a multi-meter ...
or, if anyone knows a reputable
motherboard repair centre in the UK, i could sent it to?
many thanksImages of LED's that light up below;
