Unhappy What to do with faulty 1080 Ti ?

Warranty expired. Fans do not spin and there is no display signal.

Was purchased from a stranger afew months ago in seemingly working condition, was a huge gamble; I know. I wanna give the benefit of the doubt to them and assume that the card just died under normal circumstances. I hope they didn't just oven / heat-gun it back into working condition temporarily prior to the sale.

What should I do?

Is there anywhere I can sell the card to to recuperate some of its value?

Thanks.

If it was working for a few months, then just bad luck the card died. Suggest you disassemble and check for burnt parts. If none, you can try the heatgun/oven method.

A big shame if it cant be revived! From what I've seen the heat gun success rate is very low but worth a try,....

If you wanna try the heat gun method, you need a proper square shield to shield other components around the graphic chip to avoid overheating those small SMD resistor, diode, capacitor etc...

Don't bother with the scam oven method, it will only damaged the card beyond repair. Reasons are simple and technically supported. For solid (polymer) capacitor, the temperature rating is -55c to 125c, will 125c enough to melt the solder balls and magically reconnect broken (if any) link of the graphic chip? What about the plastic connector for the 6/8 pins and fan? Wouldn't these melted at above 250c?

Hell no, right? Why would people buy into such bogus claim about reviving a motherboard or graphic card using an oven operating above 250c?

Probably used as a mining card. Turned on 24/7. And now, after short burst of GPU usage, can kill the board.

As you said, will 125c enough to melt the solder balls? You're right, it isn't. That's why in the reflow oven the temperature is higher than that.

Here's the chart for polymer in case you want to use that

You are talking about reflow, why don't you place a graphic card inside the oven at 250c for 3-5 minutes and show me how many such SMD capacitors popped.




Reflow is entirely different from baking it inside an oven hoping for the graphic chip to re-bond broken solder ball without considering other components max. temperature before failure. You can tell me the copper pins will not melted and the metalk bracket won't deform either.

RMA? Don't think it even worth to do so for high end card.

If no choice, just salvage the cooler and see if you can sell it. Sometimes others with the same model may have a faulty fan, and may buy from you.

To be honest, that is the risk of buying second hand product and especially when it is out of warranty.

Just came across someone on Carousell trying to sell a spoilt GTX 1080Ti for $340. At least, the seller is honest
