clean off the burn marks with water (and maybe some solvents if water doesn't work) RMA it, and hope for the best.

It is pitch black. You are likely to be eaten by a grue.

Clean with the alcohol based CD/cassette 'head' cleaners - works wonders every time.

I wouldn't even bother with cleaning it up. If a component went up in smoke, RMA it as is. Hopefully you didn't void the warranty by cracking it open.

I hope you were running that thing at 70+C on the cores. Chances are the VRMs were roasting and one of the fets blew if this is the case.
