"This video benchmarks and tests various points of failure for the AMD X3D CPUs in particular, but also just generally AM5 / Ryzen 7000 (Zen 4) CPU failures. The most eye-catching failure mode is catastrophic: Users have posted photos of exploded CPUs with blown-out motherboard sockets and melted plastic."

Igors Lab about the coming AGESA changes to solve the issue:

"...motherboard manufacturers have received an updated AGESA version, whose version number is COMBOAM5PI 1070. This new version will soon be integrated into BIOS updates for all AM5 mainboards and will contain lots of new features and also bug fixes. Among other things, it should ensure that the AM5 CPUs can’t take SoC voltages of more than 1.3 volts to prevent the CPUs from the burnout that just became public."

TLDR: Enjoy your early adopters experience or wait until the teething issues are ironed out!

"ASUS' actions relating to the Exploding Ryzen CPU debacle are disgraceful and abrasive to the trust that the brand has earned."

And JayzTwoCents jums on the Bandwagon:
"The last several years have proven that ASUS is anti-consumer and lack serious quality control. Enough so, that we can no longer support the brand or allow them to be one of our trusted sponsors."

Gamer Nexus follow up - Final Entry:
"ASUS has responded to our prior concerns regarding its warranty. Finally, after a mixture of extended silence and conflict, the company has reworked its position to be more reasonable toward the consumer. In this video, we talk about ASUS' response to the Ryzen 7000 CPU VSOC problems, its commentary on purchasing 'positive reviews,' and we also bring an attorney on the show to provide legal insight and perspective to the situation."
