With all the Z690 Hero motherboards catching on fire due to incorrect placement of the capacitors. I was wondering if there are other Z690 models out there besides the Hero that have the capacitors the wrong way aswell?

My motherboard is the Rog Strix Z690-F and upon inspection I see the same capacitors used as the Hero. But on my motherboard the capacitor is at a vertical orientation. Though I’m not sure which way the stripe has to be facing for the Z690-F. Anyone know?

Asus has said it only affects the Z690 Hero motherboards with specific manufacturing runs. They didn't say any other models were affected.

Yes I know but just cause Asus says that doesn’t mean we can believe them though.

That’s why I wanted to ask if anyone who knows or have knowledge with capacitors, which way should the G157 (6.3V) capacitors and other related capacitors stripe part (+) be facing on the Rog Strix Z690-F?

Unless I missed something, but when has this been an issue with Asus in the past? They have sold millions of boards for a very long time and this is the first time I remember something like this.
