If someone can elaborate on what PQ711 is on the X99 deluxe board it would really help. Could be the cause of the problem getting worse. It certainly looks different from a reference image of that section. Corsair wants me to ship my PSU from Australia to Taiwan at my expense ($120AU+)? Hope they have a change in heart! Intel has been in close contact with me and willing to keep my ticket open as I troubleshoot. Asus is slowly RMA my board, Have to send to Sydney at my expense. All parts are still under warranty and I have a receipt, but I have since moved from where i purchased so have to contact manufacturers myself.
