My graphics card caught fire!

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
So i was playing eve last night when my computer died. When i turned it back on i could smell burning and thought it was the graphics card. I took everything apart and thought it was the motherboard. When it started working again i tried again and my evga Gtx 560 caught fire. The thing is i already RMA'd the card because i was going to get a pair of 460s. What do i tell newegg now that it caught fire?
pics are of the part that burned. Anyone know what it does?
My wallet is sad.

Never seen a minivan do that before...

Thats pretty extreme, but I would contact the egg and let them know it caught fire. That has to be covered under warranty biggrin.gif

Failures happen dude - regardless of the manufacturer. Don't worry about it, I'm sure they will look after you!

What would a brand have to do with this kind of failure? Try getting mad at whoever manufactures that particular chip that probably is on every 560 ever made. The good news is they have a great warranty so it should be taken care of. If they refuse, then be mad at EVGA biggrin.gif

Yeah this is the first account on OCN of a GTX 560 going up in smoke. If you are going to get this mad at EVGA over their one flop out of a hundred thousand 560s, then you need to look a the bigger picture.

I thought it was funny how you didn't think of anything after your computer just randomly shut down and decided to turn it back on. It probably shut down because it felt something was wrong.

Im sure evga still makes good cards, however im not buying another 560. As for turning it back on right after it happened i thought i overdrew on the power outlet and it just shut off, when my brother is using his computer it happens sometimes.
