Did I fry my GPU?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So i was lucky enough to obtain an RTX 3090. It started to have this issue where when I would play in game, it would have white lines go across the screen. I tried reinstalling drivers, trying a new DP cable, putting in new 8 pin cables, checking my power supply and today I discovered that the plastic piece on the pcie slot was loose and I guess it wasn't going in all the way because normally it clicks when I install a gpu but it didnt click. I did however have it screwed in the case securely. Im not having the white lines issue while on the desktop, just when playing games. Today when fiddling with the card in my system, that plastic piece completely broke off.

 

Today I ordered a new motherboard and tomorrow it should come in and im going to go ahead and do a replacement.  Could this pci issue have fried my card? It wouldn't have been working on the desktop if it was fried right?

3000 series has power delivery issues, should've waited for reviews instead of just riding the hype train.

Looks like the weight from the card broke your PCI-E slot. That's really odd, most motherboard manufacturers build their PCI-E slots to a certain standards and it's very difficult to break those.

 

Get a GPU Anti-Sag device off amazon

Sounds like he broke the plastic lock at the end, which doesn't matter.

Still odd in the first place though. That PCIE slot must have taken some trauma beforehand

So which ones did you get?  3080 or 3090?  Post a pic of the slot so we can see the damage?

I previously had a 2070 in my build and when I replaced the case, the card got stuck in the slot as I was taking it out. Took me a while before I got it out but I put my 2070 back in there and it worked. It doesn't like these ampere gpus though

You probably have put unnecessary stress on the locking mechanism and slot as you got the GPU out. NEVER force a GPU out. Pull back on the lock, ensuring it doesn't touch or interfere with the GPU, and gently pull it out. It may take some force (make sure it has clearance) but don't completely force it out.

Ive broken the PCI-E clip off of so many boards of mine, but never had any issues. It's just there to secure card in place. However that 3090 is a THICC boi and might be pulling on the PCI-E Slot and losing proper connection. Or outright damaged the PCI-E slot.

 

Does the problem happen in another slot (if you can fit it)?

I have a 3080 also. Tried that in another slot and it did much better but I got some of the static in one frame briefly. I dont know why it would work fine when just using the desktop but in game, when it demands a higher power draw, that's where it has issues. I highly doubt its my PSU because it's an evga 850w psu that is only a couple of months old.

If I do a motherboard replacement and it still gives me that issue, it has to be from the GPU itself which is baffling because it's brand new.

It's probably the motherboard, your slot is done for. Make sure you have a real beefy PSU though.

 

If worst comes to worse, RMA the card

It's not your GPU, it wouldn't be both of them anyway.   Your slot is a damaged, RMA the board.

 

Tho I am curious, how and why were you able to get BOTH a 3080 and a 3090 when people can't even get 1 of either?

Bought one from a scalper on ebay, the 3080 started giving me that issue and I was like screw it the 3090 is coming out, I won't be able to get a gpu at msrp anyway so someone on reddit sent me the link to the 3090 page on launch day and I was able to get one. I get the 3090 and its still giving me that issue. Now I know there's nothing wrong with the 3080.

Yeah, I gave into impulse essentially. I did read that ampere gpus are having issues which I think is always something that's possible during the first batch of a tech release. I suspect it is my motherboard but if not, hopefully Nvidia will let me RMA it
