Something Exploded in My Graphic Card

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So usually I keep my computer turn on everyday from 10AM until 9PM or 11PM. And most of it is Idling because I don't want to turn off and turn on it again if I want to use it. I play some light games like CSGO, Dota 2, Apex, etc. And play some heavy games too like WD2, FH4, etc. But this day, unfortunately my Graphic Card can't hold it anymore. While I play CSGO my computer rebooted itself and I thought it just a normal error because I didn't see any performance drop and throttling whatsoever. But when it rebooted, the screen just blank, but all the components and PC is turned on and even I heard the notification sound from my PC. And then I switch off the PSU and checl the Graphic Card. Anddd this happened, when I pulled out the card, I saw this (Image Attached) dropped. Soo yeahh, know my card is died. Did anyone have experienced about this? Or do someone know why?

I would guess a phase of the VRM has blown


I spent $2500 on building my PC and all i do with it is play MTGA & watch anime at 720p...

Builds:

The Toaster Project! Northern Bee! The Cassette Deck!

 

The original LAN PC build log! (Old, dead and replaced by The Toaster Project & 5.0)

"Here is some advice that might have gotten lost somewhere along the way in your life. 

 

#1. Treat others as you would like to be treated.

#2. It's best to keep your mouth shut; and appear to be stupid, rather than open it and remove all doubt.

#3. There is nothing "wrong" with being wrong. Learning from a mistake can be more valuable than not making one in the first place.

 

Follow these simple rules in life, and I promise you, things magically get easier. " - MageTank 31-10-2016

That's a capacitor, but it's not blown - it caught fire from something else nearby which would mean probably a voltage regulation module (VRM). 

To be sure, take the heatsink off the card and post photos here. If it's only the cap, it's easy to replace.

check out "capacitor explode" videos, this one didn't blow up like those. Instead it's burnt, so probably something sent way to much voltage into it. Depending on where it fall off, it could be a failed low side mosfet or a broken buck converter. Both deal irreparable damage.


Studying abroad, ditched the crappy laptop for a do-all laptop double. Dried factory CPU paste, long memory timings, cooler cools the inductors but not the mosfets and an inch of unused internal space on both left and right

Model: HP Omen 17 17-an110ca CPU: i7-8750H (0.125V core & cache, 50mV system agent undervolt) GPU: GTX 1060 6GB Mobile (+100/+500, 1650MHz~1750MHz 0.78V~0.85V) RAM: +4GB DDR4-2666 19-19-19-43 2T Storage: 128GB Toshiba NVMe SSD (KBG30ZMV128G) + 1TB Seagate 7200RPM 2.5" HDD (ST1000LM049-2GH172) Monitor: 1080p 120Hz IPS G-sync

 

The best thing to do is reading the clock speed that doesnt end in a pair of zeros. Software voltage readings are wrong if your motherboard's not a high end model

CPU: i7-2600K 4493MHz (multiplier: 43x) 1.35V (software) --> 1.4V at the back of the socket Motherboard: Asrock Z77 Extreme4 (BCLK: 104.5MHz) CPU Cooler: Noctua NH-D15 RAM: Adata XPG 2x8GB DDR3 (XMP: 10-11-11-30 2T 2133MHz, custom: 10-11-10-30 1T 2229MHz) GPU: Asus GTX 1070 Dual SSD: Samsung 840 Pro 256GB (main boot drive), Transcend SSD370 128GB PSU: Seasonic X-660 80+ Gold Case: Antec P110 Silent, 5 intakes 1 exhaust Monitor: AOC G2460PF 1080p 144Hz (OC'd 150Hz) TN Keyboard: Logitech G610 Orion (Cherry MX Blue) with SteelSeries Apex M260 keycaps Mouse: BenQ Zowie FK1

Nah, my warranty is off

Welp, then you can almost certainly start looking to buy a new GPU then...

I'm aiming GTX 1660 Ti. It's cheap and good for 1080p play

I had a dream where Linus picked me up. It was wonderful.

UPDATE :

Today I checked the card and see what could be the problem. So, like Jurrunio said, my "electrical lane" on the PCB (I don't know what it's called in English) is burnt and can't be saved. Thanks for all your responses and support!
