GPU PCIe circuit board fix


#1

Do you guys think this is fixable?


#2

Did you drop it? Looks difficult to fix.


#3

No I didn’t drop it. I received it this way.


#4

If it’s new return it. If it’s 2nd user you may be stuck with it.


#5

Looks like an Asus ROG Strix 1070. I take it that you can’t RMA it. It might take some intricate soldering and wiring it directly to a PCIe riser adapter.


#6

Looks like the damage is mostly pins that don’t get used, you might be in luck.

Stay Fishy

I would contact ASUS. I dropped a screwdriver on a 1080ti and knocked a capacitor off the board. They sent me a refurbished one about 2 weeks later at no charge. ASUS has always done me right with customer service.

Due to it being a multi layer board that is going to be a really hard DIY fix. If ASUS wont fix it I would try carfefully slotting it into a PCIe extender slot to try and bed the board back.


#8

yeah dude i would just RMA that if its a new card that shipped that way.


#9

It’s not a new card. I got it second hand.


#10

I don’t think it can be fixed unless u have duct tape an a pair of vice grips.


#11

I’m new but if it was me I would just try and solder the connection and see what happen’s!


#12

yikes, yeah i’d try and clamp that back down with smooth jaw tongue and groove pliers or at very least some pliers with rubberized teeth.
i wouldn’t have high hopes though.

If you are going to use it for mining, you dont need those back pins, they are not used.

Grab a mini-riser like this one:

Plug it into the card and start mining :slight_smile:
