      GPU burned [emoji91]

      AOA, while gaming my pc suddenly turned off and I smell something burning. Upon Closer inspection I noticed smell is coming from GPU. I guess it's finished. No smell from power supply also GPU was very old and was in bad condition.
      Now I have to buy new gpu rtx2060, how do i know if its not caused by my power supply? I'm little skeptical about my PSU. Its a gold rating a very good power supply.

      Depends how much your PSU is capable of. You will definitely not going to open it to check the component status. So you may check its voltages via a reliable digital multimeter. The minimum acceptable limit of voltages for 12V rail is 11.4v and anything below will be a sign of problematic PSU. you can give some load to PSU by adding case fans and then check, see how it goes.

      if you were using a 280x.
      Then its definitely the GPU.

      If your PSU is bad you'd find issues with your motherboard soon after because if its bad enough to damage GPU then mobo can take abit of hit too at times like this in my experience.

      Well, the most you can do is just start the pc without it and check the voltages if you dont have a digimeter.

      But then again... you still wont be sure. Its special, get another GPU allah ka nam lo aur enjoy karo.

      Bro I don't have voltage reading meter, I have plugged in New gpu let see how long it last. Due to risk I have bought cheaper rtx2060 otherwise i was planning 2080 which would be huge risk.

      Before we start blaming power supply lets talk about your stabilizer as for safe side use AVR stabilizer with anti static Power Strip, I does this two steps back then, never had any issue with any of my hardware ever after, because even the best of PSU will get faulty if it get constant power surge, even the slightest (more like cancer to hardware).

      As I'm broad i can't use too much machinery until I return.

      Its been only over a year since I upgraded from a Radeon 7870 to an RX580 8GB. The Radeon 7870 was still in great condition and ran perfectly fine. I had defined temperature limits on MSI Afterburner so it wouldn't run at higher temperature for long periods of time. The 7870 GPU served me a good 6 years and it still had quite a bit of life in it, I just upgraded because I wanted to.

      I don't think the GPU burned out because it was old, GPUs are designed to outlive their usefulness, so they become obsolete before dying. There could be multiple reasons:
      1. The particular GPU was faulty from the manufacturer
      2. The PSU is unstable
      3. The power being fed to the PSU and the rig was unstable
      4. Sudden power cuts or power surges


      If the PSU was unstable, the motherboard would've probably been fried as well. Since that's not the case, we can rule out no. 2. Other than that, the other 3 possiblities remain.

      Then buy some decent ups with 220 and 110 support, as it come with both features, AVR and Power surge protection, with size nearly identical to stabilizer.
