I did a 1st level diagnostic at sim Lim square for $40. They said resistor spoil and need to top up another $80 for repair. It seems like it will be better to get a new one. Any one got any other store to recommend? I am using the msi tomahawk series B450 thanks

No point spending money to repair a budget MB. Agree that you should just get a new one

No more warranty? If got the corbell sticker and date stated in it is still within 3 yrs, they will still honour.

The computer suddenly shut down and then dead.. damn ..the motherboard is like quite new. I guess no choice need to get a replacement. Not worth repairing it

The motherboard no warranty at all?
Or you buy from Amazon’s something else?

Very confuse what you post here.
So initially where that motherboard was brought from?
Seems like you have money to burn so why want to buy from a oversea seller
like shop4SG.

TBH motherboard can fail after using for a long period, since you have the money
than why don't buy locally? What if the motherboard spoil again than how?
Are you going to buy again?

Lazada got so many online like PCthemes etc., more expensive but at least
you got warranty.
I don't know where is your priority whether is to save money or get a motherboard
with 3 years warranty.

B450 boards are slowly obsolete so it may not appear online but at SLS may have.
Best B450 I can recommend will be Gigabyte B450 Auros pro Wifi at $201.
If you want cheaper than ASUS prime A520 around $15X.

General rule of them especially for AMD, don't cheap out the motherboard.
Get something decent with three years warranty.
