Motherboard Teardown: DFI LanParty DK X48-T2RSB+

Hey there.

This is my motherboard 3 years ago. The motherboard was really great for overclocking, plus the catchy UV-reactive color slots. Until, suddenly the MOSFET burned when I turn on the computer.

Don’t really know why, I assume it might be from ESD, because I don’t use any chassis before. My board are just laying on my desk.

Even the MOSFET already burned, I tried to remove it from the board, and viola! it still works!

The Audio jack housing is broken, intentionally, because I want to see inside the connectors.

Ok, Here we go~
