Help - Gtx 1080 VRM ripped off

So I'm not entirely sure what I ripped off. But can I solder it back on? it seems like an extremely clean break.

 

Basically, I was putting on VRM heatsinks onto my GPU for a Kraken mod and I was poking at the heatsinks and this one came right off. Can I resolder it on?

 

Please help.

Unfortunately no. The tabs from the chip are stuck on the pcb.

You have some luck however. That should be a relatively easy fix providing you can find a replacement part as the pcb had not been damaged.

Can you explain this? I have no idea what I'm doing so kind of worried.

So desolder the entire part including the tabs?

I would say, don't do anythig, you messed up your part, leave it to someone like louis rossmann, that can actually do things like this....

The tabs from the capacitor have sheared off and stuck to the pcb. The bits sticking up.

The solder and tabs would need to be removed from the pcb before a new part is soldered in.

As @wojtepanik said its better to get a friend or service person to help if your not comfortable with electronics already. 

However, this is about the easiest part to actually replace and its fairly accessable if you did want to try. 

The other thing you could do is contact the card vendor, explain what happened. They may offer to fix it under warrenty since it should be an easy fix. YMMV

? anyway to find out what part this is?

 

Any way to look at an Aorus 1080 mini schematic?

Fairly sure it's a 330uF tantalum capacitor. If it was an older card I'd suggest trying the repair. Considering its a fairly new card I'd highly suggest you contact gigabyte.

The biggest problem you'll have is finding the exact replacement part. You can substitute, but only if you know what you're doing. 

Ask gigabyte if they can cover your mistake. Otherwise a competent electronics repair person should be able to fix it in 5 minutes after finding the part. So it shouldn't cost too much. 

No chance of a schematic these days.

This should have stopped you from fucking with it in the first place.  

 

Like said below, find a repair shop that does this work.  Be prepared to spend a a bit of coin.
