PNY GTX 970

Seller Note “power throttles because it thinks it’s drawing 400w at idle so won’t go beyond 135mhz.”

Summary

  • Resistaces fine. Loads driver in windows and seems stable, but shows a PowerCap limit as indicated by the seller’s note.
  • My attention immediatley went to the INA 3221. On inspection, there appears to be damage to a resistor there (see below). Pad could be ripped under the lifted end.
