Wow, that looks toasty. Looks like a lot more collateral damage than I experienced. Did the board stay plugged in for a while?

no, yours was the worst i've seen

it blew c16, c17, d9, c18, and u6. I think I replaced c22 for good measure too.

The last one that happened on one of mine, fried the entire V3.0 mainboard.

that's crazy. I wonder what's causing it. Seems to be a MS3x only issue; possibly expander board issue?

Plain and simple: voltage spikes. 25V is too low.
