HELP - Broke something off my gtx 570 - Page 3

post #21 of 24
Even if you did, surface mounted caps and resistors are quite hard to replace and install without decent equipment.

Still, are you absolutely sure that it was you who ripped those out? There's no visible damage anywhere on the card, it'd require quite a surgical strike to break them off like that.

The two broken off parts are capacitors for memory modules M1 and M4. See the 2 pics below.
Pic 1 shows the back of the PCB (GTX570. The green rectangles refer to the memory module and the red circles indicate the 2 capacitors.
Pic 2 shows the front of the PCB (GTX570) and indicates the position of M1 and M4 memory modules.

Here is a similar thread of interest to you as it contains some useful info.
Even though you have little solder skill, I would still suggest you trying it. If you have zero confidence, perhaps you get the right parts and then find a local technician or handyman and pay him (a little fee of course) to help you soldering them back on.

Resoldering thous resistors can be done but its a "turd" to do with out the right tools. You could try using super glue and conductive paint thou I have never personally done that fix. By the way has any one else noticed that thees incidents of knocked of components are getting more frequent? Its like manufacturers don't know how solder anymore.
