Does this look fixable?

My Vega 64 stopped working after rebuilding my water loop. Turns out, water leaked from the VRM block onto the motherboard, taking out the PCIE x16 slot and the graphics card. The other possibility is that I reinstalled the backplate or leaf spring incorrectly, making contact with the PCB. There is a region on the card that looks charred. I actually took a picture of the card before reinstalling the block and I confirmed the charring was not there.

Does that area smell burned? Because it doesn't look burned to me. It looks like a capacitor may have corroded away due to electrolysis. That could also explain why your slot died (ionized water running into the slot below, causing a short circuit.)

99% ISO + tooth brush, or pay a local tech/gun shop to sonic clean it.



can't really tell what's going on. it does look burnt, but that chip itself doesn't look damaged. looks like water deposits and corrosion. have you tried booting it in slot 2?

Add me on Steam, same name

If something appears too good to be true, it probably is.

That looks like water junk to me. If it was burned you would know, the smell of burned electronics and burned FR PCB is pretty bad and hard to vent too, certainly doesn't look white but black instead.

Water corrosion.

Cleaning it up is the easy bit, Finding replacement ICs for those 2 corroded ones if they are dead is going to be the hard part.

That's for when you see artifacting and suspect the core became disconnected from the card. My core is fine.

I bought a new motherboard / CPU and GPU because of this, but I still want to fix my Vega.

I managed to clean it with a dry toothbrush. Still doesn't work though. Slot 2 (of my now old computer) works, but with a different GPU. This card doesn't work in any slots.

Right, I would need to find a Vega with a bad core, or give mine to somebody who has a bad core.
