Was the card thermal throttling?

 

I just can't understand taking apart a $1500+ gpu just cuz...

 

Especially when you don't really know what you're doing.   Hope others read this and instils a bit of caution.

How were you able to reattach the chip, did you solder it back on? 

 

If not I would expect it to immediately fall off once the card is move considering nothing is holding it on.

 

I'm don't know what that chip is, it does look like a mosfet.

 

No idea, just speculation.

I would be worried that it was for some of the memory modules, and once it reaches a certain memory usage you may run into problems. Perhaps the 3090 doesn't need all its power phases working and you broke the one which was sharing the load with others, and now the others are compensating.
