(i had always thought Asus mobo quality has lapsed the last few years and this confirms it.and why i went to another brand with ferrite chokes))
I have never heard of this happening before..:lol:
Now I have to run home and check mine out...:o
Performance degradation yet?
EDIT: Nvm - took for granted it was your board.

How did that happen? Did they submerge it into salt water for pro longed periods of time? :lol:

he must live outside lol or next to a beach or a salt plant lol
It's not rust. It may be the clear coat on them reacting to heat from possible way over the top overclock. Rust is never shinny, LOL.

nope, not my motherboard (i have gigabyte)
read the links
also its shiny as the rust is under the shiny coating hence the bubbling

If it is as they said in fact moisture during manufacturing, then they would not rust without being exposed to oxygen. I don't see how those chokes being sealed would do that.
