    Actually, no, I wasn't mixing any utilities like you mentioned. The issue, also according to Asus, was a design flow that may cause a short in the motherboard itself. As somewhat of a proof, the CPU was not affected. The thing is, it shouldn't happen - especially in a flagship series such as strix gaming which is supposed to be built for OC.
