Asus Z690 Hero boards failing

This is rather worrying, particularly since I’m sat right next to one.

JayzTwoCents on YouTube and another engineer discovered that all the boards they examined that failed have a capacitor installed backwards. This video shows how you can easily check your board to see if it may be affected. He referenced another video that gets a bit more technical on the subject.
