  1. Thanks for the reply. I agree, I have decided to pass on this card, so I will close the topic. As you and other commenters said, inductors don't blow up randomly. Even if I fix it, might happen again. I didn't need the card for personal needs, have a 1080 under water, just looking to fix a broken part and resell it on the used market. However, 1060 6gb don't go for 80 on ebay. Afaik, at least 100+ in my country and used market.
  2. I find it fun, but I would've tried to fix for resale value. I like fixing stuff, but the fact that something else might be wrong with the card that made in turn made the inductor fail has me on the edge. For now I think I'll pass.
  3. Thanks for the reply! Yea, I read that something else usually fails for an inductor to blow up on itself, and I am quite afraid the card has some other damage and in turn is unfixable for my skill sets. At the moment I'm thinking of passing on it, money is quite tight unfortunately.
  4. Hey. I'm buying a GTX 1060 6gb mini from Zotac. The guy selling has burnt an inductor off the card. It is SMD, and it looks fixable. The part in question is an R01 inductor and it's a part of the PLL VRM (saw on buildzoids PCB breakdown). The part in question is circled in the image. Has anyone had any luck of soldering this type of chip on? How feasible is it, and is the risk worth the money (35 euros for a 1060 6gb).
  5. Hey, I have a Ryzen 1600 with a MSI b450i gaming plus ac itx board. I was running this with a GTX 770, but I want to sell this pc so I opened it and cleaned everything. After putting it back together, it won't show video out. USB devices work, but no video output. Using my spare AMD R9 280 I boot fine and everything works. Putting my GTX 770 in a different PC, it works fine. I tried using a spare GTX 750ti that works and with that still no video out. The motherboard shows VGA light on MSI's ez debug leds. Unfortunately, I can't plug a mobo speaker to hear beebs, but it's definitely a motherboard problem. I've already tried resetting cmos, DDU'ing drivers, reseating cpu & ram, etc. Thanks boys.
  6. Can't boot into bios. Didn't have time to monitor voltages unfortunately. Seeing the board is in half right now, I don't think I'll be booting into any bioses.
  7. Dude, I didn't realize the board killed my first 2 CPU's. After the 3rd, I snapped it in half. No more killer board.
  8. So one day I was using my PC with a z97 anniversary by ASRock and my 4790k. Suddenly my PC shut off and wouldn't boot. Tried my backup cpu, the i5 4460 that was just laying around, and no post as well. Thought nothing of it, the board is dead. Fast forward 2 days, get a new board. Same issue. Then I got a i3 4130. This worked in the new board, and I was bummed that the cpus were dead instead of the board. Tried the i3 4130 in my z97 board, nothing. Now the i3 doesn't work in my other board, an h81 by ASRock. I believe it was overvoltage to the cpus, but there is no visible damage. Any hope in saving them? Thanks!
