Free BROKEN Aorus 1080ti
#1
Sad 
Got scammed a few months ago and paid $610 for a broken 1080ti.  It does not work at all, no signs of life when it's plugged in.  No fans spins, no lights etc.  I've tried different cabling, different PCs, different psus, everything.  I also took it apart and cleaned it but that did not work either so something is broken at a component level.  If anyone wants it for parts or to take a crack at fixing it you can have it for free.  I can ship it to you if you cover shipping cost or you can pick it up if you live in socal.

Sorry to hear you got scammed. Something similar happened to me a while back as well with a 1060. Good luck!

You can probably get it fixed by an expert. I am not in socal any more so I don't know of anyone out there. I am actually from the Moorpark and Simi Valley area. My son still lives in Simi.

I've looked around, can't seem to find anybody who would be able to diagnose and fix it.  Maybe I can send it in somewhere

I would like to experiment with microsoldering and electronics diagnosis/repair and would consider to pay for the shipping to see if I can fix this bad boy up. You could also send it to someone like NorthRidgeFix on YouTube. Check out his channel, it might inspire you to try and fix it yourself.

Here's a video of his on the 1080ti, but if you search 1080ti NorthRidgeFix you can see him troubleshoot a few of them I think

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6em9eQ4b_DI (Just watched the video: It turns out there was a blown MOSFET in this card which fried the GPU and it is dead for good. If you have a multimeter and watch this video carefully, you might be able to determine if the GPU is fried like it is in the video, in which case there's no point trying to fix it.)

AFAIK as long as the main processing chip on the board is good, it's probably just a tiny resistor or capacitor somewhere that needs to be replaced and the card will be back up and running.

After watching a few of these videos, I've decided that I wouldn't want to attempt this, not because I'm not confident I could do the work, but because I don't have other donor boards to take components from to repair yours.

You can mail it in to them and he can have a go at repairing your card. Not sure what the pricing is like.

I've actually seen that guy before on yt, unfortunately there is a disclaimer on his website saying they're not accepting anymore gpus at this time lol. I don't have a multimeter or anything like that so I can't test it but if you wanna tinker around with it let me know and I'll send it your way.

I sent in a 1070sc to northridgefix in the beginning of may and they still haven’t gotten to it yet. They look like they do good work so if you can wait it may pay off.
