My broken RTX 3090 KINGPIN is worse than I thought...

Vitenskap og teknologi

I took my broken RTX 3090 KINGPIN card to EVGA to fix... it's broken worse than I thought. Meanwhile, let's try to get the pot mount more secure.

    If it is just the cap knocked off but solder pads are still intact should be very easy to fix with hot air gun. I guess you would have done it yourself in that case. Even if the pad is ripped off, as a workaround you can scrape some soldermask off the trace using a scalpel, solder a tiny slice of copper/aluminium strip to the track so that it extends long enough for a cap to land and make a good contact for both ends, solder it back with hot air gun and glue it in place to secure. Kinda of a micro surgery but anyone who has some experience with SMT PCB repair should be able to do it.

    I worked in a physics lab for 5 years. There's a reason we wear safety goggles, gloves and a lab coat while using liquid nitrogen. One splash in your eyes will permanently blind you - or, at best, cost a huge amount of time and energy and cash in hospital visits. At the very least wear lab goggles. Please.

    Gray Kitty of Gamers Nexus says that: "...technically a technician can do it with the proper equipment, but it looks like you broke the pad and part of the circuit board tracing off..." He guesses that: "...the side of that resistor with the dark 'end' has the pad still attached. Many issues with trying to 'repair' that kind of equipment." If you're lucky they'll replace it with the exact same board, or at worst they'll mount the GPU onto a 'new board.'

    "European units". 🤣 You mean the rest of the world units. Although, we do still have both in my country and it's easy to get tools or parts for either. Also, that soldering job would be done in house here and not sent to Taiwan or anywhere else. Techs here normally do it themselves rather than take it back.
