HELP - Broke something off my gtx 570

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
Hi all

I was changing out the TIM on my gtx 570 and two small silver blocks on the back of the GPu circuit board have broke off. I cant take a picture because there so small but this is what they look like, its the same as those small grey blocks but on the rear of my graphics card:

Any ideas if missing two of these is a big problem?

Does it boot? If it does...your probably ok. If it doesn't...well common sense.

Most likely, probably a card killer.... Sorry...

Using your pic as an example, check the designation next to the part that has come off.

Cxxx (xxx is a number) usually refers to a capacitor (red circle in pic below) while Ryyy (yyy is a number) refers to a resistor (green circle in pic).

Regarding the function of the 2 parts that fell off, it is hard to say because it depends on which circuit that the 2 parts belong to. For an example, a little resistor might belong to the OCP circuit and if it is removed, the OCP will not work properly.

if it still boots then I think you could get away by rma'ing it and report a different problem. even if it works fine I would still rma it. I wouldn't risk using it with some of the parts damaged. it may work now but maybe not later

Come on, RMA wasn't made to fix what you broke, it's meant to fix what the manufacturer broke...

Folks, thanks for the help. Below is a picture of the graphics card circuit board on the rear, the numbers where two silver blocks are missing from are: C992 and C968. Hopefully someone could tell me what this means they do? Thanks
