    Is the motherboard still covered by warranty?
    It sounds like you may need to use it. If the power supply tests ok then probably the only way to fix it would be to track down the faulty power trace on the motherboard-this is not something you could undertake most likely- I'm assuming there's a short somewhere as the 4/8 pin is usually responsible for supplying power to the PCI lanes.

    In terms of pure power they're almost catching up to Server/Workstation boards But they don't have the features of i7/i9's.Also, generally only 1 x16 PCIe on such boards, but MASSIVE RAID and RAM arrays.
