Blown GTX 980 Ti

Well, looks like one of the voltage regulator chips blew up on my GTX 980 Ti. My computer wouldn’t turn on, so I got a new power supply, re-seated the GPU, and spark-pow! Smoke came out. Ahh, the smell of burnt electrical components. 😠 Connie said it was okay to buy a new one. 😄 Have an RTX 2080 on order. Angry and happy at the same time.

I didn’t want to spend $$$ on the latest and greatest, so I got the next best thing…arriving tomorrow. Also ordered additional memory to max out my motherboard. We’ll see how long my 2014 motherboard and processor lasts after I put this bad-boy in.
