Dropped 1080ti

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hey guys I have a Gigabyte GTX 1080ti that was dropped. 
My buddy dropped it, its his card, and chipped/shaved off the tip of the PCI connector. 

It does not boot in to windows do to it but there is fan spin.

Now I'm curious if anyone had any history with this kinda of problem. I heard that I could tape off the tip and it would be reduce to a 4x, how true is that?

Either way here are some pics and thank you for any help. the rest of the pci connector is un damaged

I'm kinda thinking the same thing. I might have to open it to see that.

Does Gigabyte accepts warranty for this accident? If not, well RIP
Can still sell the cooler shroud though :))

We tried, they said pci damge = no warranty 
I'm actually trying to see how much I can save on this card cause I'm just trying to sell it off for some scrap change.

Guess people should be more careful when handling expensive hardware ?

You could get some kind of cash for the whole card. A really determined user would try to repair it and either flip it or use it.

Atm I'm willing to bet that the problem is just stuff interfering with the contact. Clean off the rubbish that looks like its overlapping the contacts. Check there is no rubbish in the slot on the motherboard. You might be ok


If you're interested in a product please download and read the manual first.

BTW to clean it I would lightly wipe it with a fine grade sandpaper, and wipe the same direction as the contacts. ie from the inside to the edge

Before you go at the card do some more digging on the internet, and check if its in warranty. If its still warranty then get it fixed lol. If not and nothing to lose, then I guess go for it

He was holding a few graphic cards in his hands and dropped it.
