friends, today I have very fun story for u

Basically I was browsing the internet, few forums and news, discord etc. when suddenly my computer turned off and it started smelling like a cable burned.

My pc didn't want to start afterwards so I thought it's the power supply. Well - I tested the power supply with an old mainboard and it was working fine, then I removed the graphics card from my pc and it started again! Yay! Well actually not yay, I put my GTX 1060 back into my computer and after starting it, it LITERALLY started burning (the GTX 1060), I was like FUCKING HELL get the Wasserwerfer and disconnected the power supply.

Holy fuck. My GPU literally catched fire. I wasn't even playing a game or sth, out of nowhere it fucked up! :pepe:

I want to die :pepe:

What should I do? :pepechu:
I hope the other parts are fine..

I need fundraising for new GPU :feelsbobman:

If it's under warranty, then RMA it.

 

If not, pm me and I will refund you a new gpu for 0%. (please be in the usa/ca/uk)

Often said by the winner in poker, as the others 'weep' over the loss.

You can get an SE'd GPU from various shops that have opened, I think Miro can do it for 40%
