Your thoughts on damaged GTX 760 PCB?

Hi can you guys looks at this damage to this PCB on this GTX 760 and say if it looks repairable?

THANKS

Any information on what caused the damage? Looks like heat to me, but it would be easier to give you an answer if we knew exactly what happened to it.


Also, repairable by whom? You? Do you have the tools/machines that could even repair this? Or are you considering sending it in to be refurbished or something like that.

Looks to me like a scrape which took out a tiny resistor or two which I have a local electronics repair company that did it for me on a couple cards.

I feel like I would just need to clean up the scrap .. determine trace issues lmao .. and have them solder new resistors on..

I haven't bought the gpu yet but I may if I be confident enough it is repairable...

As any of us would know physical damage is typically trash can worthy.. lol

Can you see the resistors missing/ damaged? Those are resistors right?

You got the manufacturer/specific revision of that particular card? Is it a reference board, or..? A serial number will do fine if you can get it. I have no way of really confirming other than from what I can see, but among the damaged looks like a variable resistor, maybe two there.

And yeah, I was a bit confused by that mark which did indeed look like a scrape, but that floated flux all around that area is typical of relatively high temperatures. That area obviously wasn't burnt to a crisp, but it doesn't need to catch fire to be damaged by heating. But who knows, could just be the lighting of the photographs.
