I have a system that runs two Nvidia cards in SLi. One day video was not working correctly. There were artifacts and signs of over heating. One of my cards was dying and died very quickly after a test reboot.
I noticed two capacitors that were leaking with protruding paper. Well why pay for a new card when you can geek it back together.
Remove the old capacitors.
And Solder on the new ones…
Before you start replacing capacitors on a dead video card, check the warranty. Mine had expired.
Being a Geek is fun!
