MSI GTX 780 Twin-Frozr

Seller Note “Card has recently stopped working. Able to boot on a clean windows install and initially works, but once the appropriate driver is installed, there is no longer any video output. The card has never been opened with the warranty sticker still on one of the screws. Have not attempted any repairs on the card. Don’t have the original box but will be sent with appropriate anti-static packaging.”

Summary

  • Resistances look good. The behaviour seems consistent with the seller’s note.
  • Relatively mild signs of age/corrosion.
  • I see 1 missing capacitor (C526), C524 also looks in poor condition
  • MATS has assertion errors and reveals a failing E1 chip – Need Hynix H5GQ2H24AFR-R0C
