    In one of the computer stores I buy from, you can buy motherboards repaired by the manufacturer for a lower price, and there are many Maximus XI Hero.
    Problem not common at all. The Hero line is the most popular, best selling mobo in the ROG series. So you will see more of these mobos either installed or on return shelves. That's just the math.

    I've built about 14 PCs based on the Hero XI and haven't had a single customer RMA. 14 is not a big sample, but it's definitely been a good running board for my business. I've pair most of those with 9900Ks and a few 9700Ks. No problems from customers noted that haven't been driver/software user related issues.


    To the OP:

    Sounds like you have a hardware failure. Might indeed by the motherboard. But it might be CPU or RAM related as well. Unfortunately all you can do is swap parts and find out. I'd start with the CPU first given the sudden death of the system. Boards tend to lose stability over time when failing. Same for RAM.

    A last ditch effort is to remove the mobo from the case and see if you can boot.
