So this just happened. First some backstory
R9 fury got scratched pcb shorting the fan-control, making the fans go 100 percent all the time. Bought a gpu pwm to motherboard pwm converter and ran the fans using speedfan, regulated by gpu temp
Insert little brother who plays with headset and doesn't notice when things go wrong (eg artifacts and the like).
Insert Asus game booster
Maybe you've already guessed what happened, the game booster disabled speedfan while my bro was playing pubg and according to him the pc suddenly went to sleep mode, but I recon the card just stopped giving output since the pc was still on when I came to take a look (was downstairs studying)
What are the chances I can recover the card? I read that I could use a heatgun / oven to melt the solder, possibly re-seating the chip on the pcb
The heat exhaust at the top of the case was a lot higher than usual when I shut the pc down after gpu failure
Card did not show aging symptoms prior to failure
According to him he only played one and a half rounds, it should be noted that pubg keeps the gpu pinned at 100 percent even in the menu
Led for bios toggle on card works
Pc starts with the card installed but gives no display output
Power supply is a Corsair 650 watt 80 plus gold, pc works fine on the integrated graphics
Device manager detects an unknown pci-e device but can't detect what drivers it uses nor any info about it
Any input is welcome, with the gpu prices I can't afford to buy a new one right now. Thank you
