    So finally had an issue with the 2080ti.

    Running benchmark and got a black screen, was scorching hot and smelt burning, saw a few sparks on the back of the GPU so shut the system down.

    Upon removing the card, I see a part of the chip loose and a couple askew.

    Is this normal in an overheat?

    Item wasn't over clocked other than its standard factory clock

    Any ideas?

    Looks like a defective GPU, ask for a refund or replacement.

    Wow. How hot it was before you smelt the burning?

    Hi there

    What temperatures did you seen on this GPU?

    RTX GPUs are running hotter than Pascal or Maxwell GPU generation

    Hope this helps

    Thanks, Jura

    I can tell you that's not normal, overheat or not. RMA.

    Got it on release, thus didn't see issue postings, boot away, its just hardware, and it'll go back.

    Only in the 70s on the sensors but was burning to touch on the hand.

    Sorry for your loss. Yes RMA that thing, if you didn't overclock it can only be a problem during manufacturing.

    So did the damage knock the top loose?

    I;d have thought that if it was like that then on first boot it would make contact and spark, Have you moved it or knocked it recently?
    I've seen people hit by cars, Are you saying I should stop going outside?
    Bit of a broad statement

    70c is like 160f so that would burn if touched, gpu's can take the no problem flesh touching that not so much.

    Looks like poor soldering coupled with heat expansion caused the transistor to contact another, hence the smell.

    No, nothing has been near it, card was sideways, thus why I assume the heat desoldered the transistor and they slipped to the side.

    Yeah guess so, oddly it still turned on when I tested it today with a missing transistor, but stank.

    They took it to send for RMA, said it’ll take 30 days to go to China to Palit and back, left with no replacement.
