I will say that I've had a healthy quantity of graphics cards in a healthy quantity of motherboards and I've never seen anything like this. I assumed it was probably my fault as I did a lot of non-standard stuff; but it still amazed me at how it popped off.
Its not like you ran the vga on ln2?
Im guessing you ran dry ice on cpu?
That should not break a pci slot.
Cold/heat cycles will stretch traces near socket eventually and cause reliability issues but usually get 5 or more cycles before you have issues. But that applies mostly to ln2...dry ice really not cold enough to warp boards.
Once again though if no di or ln2 on vga i fail to see how a cold board should have an issue. I tossed mine outside window in winter like many...
No issues.Edited by chew* - 4/21/17 at 11:53am
