    I think it's probably the main mosfet driver/voltage regulator.

    That was a fair bit of corrosion in the first photos and doesn't look like anything actually burnt out from a serious short so I would have some hope still now. Best of luck :thumbup:

    Make sure your motherboard is dry and clean too.

    From what I can find the ITE 8915FN ic is for fan control, makes sense with the proximity to the fan headers. Can't find a public datasheet for it.

    Hopefully it doesn't die...or hasn't died...

    Checking the mb now, I've been at it for a good twenty minutes and there isn't much corrosion left. Here's hoping...

    Update within the hour, just gonna give the card a blast of cool air and block it and see what happens...should i test for lights on PCIE first, or just fire?

    Multimeter time. If you're lucky, fuses. If you're not, good luck.

    Yeh so the temporary solution was to get another 3090, systems running ok

    Ill figure something out for this card, put the stock cooler on again, might put it on a test bench and see if it goes, otherwise prob have to get it rmad or pray

    Me too mate :thumbup:

    I did, didn't get around to testing it with a multimeter, also talked to someone at asus rnd and he mentioned how polyfuses are supposed to work again after popping..tried again but its not working..

    After the alcohol wipes and drying out the card, seems like the power part is fine, but the card just won't display. Monitor shows DP, then it shows DP no signal
