Switched the card around to see if its the card or the motherboard, or even the power supply line, but it seems like its definitely the card. What do you guys think??
Just curious if you heard a pop or smelled anything?
I had the same thing happen to me. Updated driver and ran benchmark = reset pc and dead card.
No smell or pop though, and the dead card fan still spins up.
