So I bought this $20 SATA cable to power my newly acquired SSD. I didn't know that the cable was faulty. I plugged it into my PSU and my PC just didn't work. I went through numerous troubleshooting steps and finally came to the conclusion that it was the cable, but it was too late. Once I tried firing up my computer it did not display anything on my 1070Ti. I was told by a friend that the SATA cable shares the 12V rail with my GPU, therefore it practically fried it.
I tried numerous attempts at getting it to work, but to no avail. I am stuck with integrated graphics.
Is there anything I can do to salvage this GPU, or do I need to buy a new one completely?
