    How does FS2020 perform with it? All reprojection all the time?

    It's real easy to knock them off if you get liquid metal on the solder. The liquid metal dilutes the tin in the solder and makes it soft enough that you can just knock those little caps off. In other words, the kapton tape or nail polish isn't...

    For those in the market, Newegg has the Asus TUF 6900XT for $1599 today. That's $50 lower than the lowest price I've seen on a 6900XT previously that I could easily just order and receive without the need to camp outside of Micro Center like...

    It's cool, man. There's a Youtube channel out there with my real name on it where I talk about this sort of thing into a camera - if I didn't want to be asked, I wouldn't be screaming the answers to these questions into the void. My real job is...

    RazorWind is an awesome and knowledgeable person for helping out so many people with their graphics card problems, I could be wrong but I doubt he would appreciate people advertising to go to him with their problems across the internet. I relate...

    Truth. I've not had the pleasure of examining an Ampere card, but on older designs, the function of those little caps is to filter noise out of the memory power supply. I happen to have the equipment to do it, so I'd replace it, but there is a...

    Step 1. Figure out which circuit that capacitor is part of. I think there are three or four on Ampere cards: * GPU Core power (should be about 1.1V) * Memory Power (should be about 1.3V) * Auxiliary rail #1 * Auxiliary rail #2 I'm not sure...

    Are the chips available? Can you post some photos of the damage?

    RazorWind replied to the thread RTX 3060 Ti broken capacitor.
    It's not so much the model that you need as the capacitance. What I would do is use a real fine nozzle on my hot air station, and remove one of the ones next to it, measure it, and then put it back on. I can't say for sure without measuring...

    Given that the memory voltage appears to be a little high, I think I'd be checking for corrosion or damage on the sense pins for the memory power controller. Hint: Look up the datasheet, and use it to figure out what the resistance on the...

    When it starts killing graphics cards.

    It'll be fine. I'd probably try to get some heatsinks on there for permanent use, especially if the idea is that you're going to mine this card to death, but if you're just testing to see if the system will work at all with this card in there...

    Are you handy with a soldering iron? This would be pretty simple to make. I’d probably splice in a SATA connector to get the 12v from, if you’re adding extra fans.
  • R
    Alright, so your memory and controller aren't running either. As I recall, the memory power has its own controller. I didn't have to investigate this, because my problem was elsewhere, but I suspect that what happens is that the enable signal...

    Ok, so the core rail isn't running. What voltage are you seeing on the memory and memory controller rail coil terminals?
  • R
    The 3.3V rail shouldn't ever be zero. It's supplied by the power supply. If you really have zero on that one, you need to figure out why. First, are you SURE that you're measuring the right spot? The best place to access it is the shunt on...

    RazorWind replied to the thread 980 ti advise.
    I would advise against cannibalizing the FDMF6823As from a used board. They fail because they ran too hot over a long period of time, so a used one may be worn out anyway, but also, they're very easy to damage when you remove them with hot air...

    RazorWind replied to the thread 980 ti advise.
    Probably related to the VRM. Fix it fully and then troubleshoot further if you need to. Consider yourself incredibly lucky if you were able to solder one of those FDMF6823As on the first try.

    RazorWind replied to the thread Sapphire rx470.
    The big pads in the center are probably supposed to be connected, since they're both ground. It's pretty common to see that pads for pins that do the same thing are actually connected like that, and then the coating on the board is used to make...

    RazorWind replied to the thread Sapphire rx470.
    Use more flux - get better flux if you need to - and a soldering iron to separate the pins. Clean the tip, heat each pad and soak up the solder, and then clean the tip. Repeat a bunch of times, being careful not to overheat the pads. As I...
