Card Killed all 16x slots?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Has anyone ever heard of a graphics card overheating/having a melt down and taking slots on the motherboard out with it?
I had a really bad mount that threw my gpu temps through the roof to the point of crashing yesterday. The system did POST after the crash, but had a black screen. I swapped out the overheated graphics card with my spare and got a POST error beep with no screen. I moved it up 2 slots to an x4 lane and beep, no problems. Up 1 more to a different x16 lane and error beep black screen. confused.gif

Im not a pro at debugging melted graphics card, but if I had to take a guess, it might have took out the PCIe controller

Great Gigabyte probably won't replace the board under warranty will they?
