Gtx 1070 caught fire

So I messed up and didn’t fully check for leaks before booting my pc up after installing my 1070 into my setup. Naturally there was a leak at the inlet to the card’s waterblock and somehow it was conductive and set fire to the pciex16 slot itself. The damage isn’t alot but the motherboard is definitely dead. The gpu itself though has minimal damage But the damage it does have, will it still function properly or have I wasted some money but not being patient? All fingers on back side are good but the front left side, first few fingers are good as gone. It is a Gigabyte G1 1070 if that helps anyone at all.

the time my gpu caught fire, and i moved the psu into the next build, it slowly shorted everything else on the new build too, so compare the cost of the stuff you are moving over vs the cost of the new build and see if it's worth the risk for u

hopefully gpu may survive......

fire looks like started from mobo

 

Yeah it was doing nvidia update and went to bathroom, come back and saw it catch, thankfully I have a master kill switch on my desk to kill power for not only the pc itself by screens and equipment for streaming.

leak

Ah man that is too bad

 

This is why its best not to use liquid cooling. If you do use liquid cooling, not sure if there is such a thing as a double walled hose.

I think it would actually be A1-A5...either way, I'm pretty sure that card is toast.  RIP.  Sorry for your loss.

So is it even worth testing in my spare motherboard then? Or should I just slap my 970 back into the spare one and wait til next payday to learn from my mistakes?
