Is it normal for the solder connecting chokes to the motherboard to have those cracks, is it dangerous in any way? How are they connected to the motherboard? That's my friends motherboard, a maximus Apex xi z390
Yes what i was referring to was in the yellow circle, i've been looking at it quickly before installing it and it actually looked cracked not just folded material, there was also metallic material on the pcb. The thing is, i haven't experienced any voltage problem, they're stable and temps are just fine as well. If there was an actual crack on each choke what would it imply, what kind of problems would i experience?
That's my mofset uncovered, i see they have something similar happening there too but way less accentuated i'd say,not sure how the choke connects to the motherboard, i can tell it's not soldered below the mobo cause there are no signs on the back of the motherboard.
