Burnt my video card

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
I have an EVGA 470 (stock cooling). I overclocked it to 750mhz, Shader 1500mhz, and memory 1700mhz. The voltage I upped it from stock to 1065 i think.

I been playing games for weeks without any unstability problems. Today when I started playing one of my games borderlands, my computer randomly shut off completely. I tried turning it back on several times, but it didn't start. Then I opened my case and tried to turn it on again and then I saw smoke coming out through the fans of the video card. I took it out of my computer and am currently running integrated graphics. What do you guys think I should do? Is it permanently damaged? Can I get it RMA?

Is it a good idea to try to put the 470 back into my computer then putting it back to stock settings? Or will that damage it more?

I dont think there is any point of putting it back, but thats just me. Once it smokes, its broke. Thats my motto.

Rma it.

Do you think EVGA would take it back since I did overclock it. Will that void the life time warranty that they have?

If it's still under warranty you should be able to RMA it.

Companies cant detect overclocks made on graphics cards. It's close to impossible.

If it's dead they can't really check if it was overclocked or overvolted, will just inspect the exterior so as long as it looks like it did coming out of the box all should be well.
