    Lightbulb Broken EVGA 1080 Founders Edition NEED HELP!.

    Hi, i have a Broken EVGA 1080 Founders Edition.
    I purchased it a long time ago and it had a NZXT cooler on it.

    I took the cooler off and got careless screwing it back together, I need to upgrade my toolkit because I didn't have those micro mini screws they are using nowadays.
    I am actually a electrical engineer by trade, but have always done anything and just about everything so i should be the first one to know what I'm doing...
    But with age comes....

    I will post some pictures today. I would love to figure out what i screwed up when i turned one screw with a pair of pliers and the edge caught what looks like some caps or something.
    I will also look at this experience as a learning point, to better understand these new fangled pcb boards.

    Thanks in advance!

    UPDATED! See below...







    EVGA GTX1080 FE Part# 08G-P4-6180-KR

    From what I see ....

    - Q501 (which i think is a transistor) is gone
    - C503 (cap) gone
    - R1035 (resistor?) gone resistor,

    Hmmm where is R1034?, that might be a add to the list or on the other side of the pcb????

    So that is what i see so far

    where is the color code - Bad Boys Rxxx Our Young Girls But Violet Gives Willingly - I learned that back in school in 1977 to remember the color code

    Now off to try to find a schematic.....






    THANKS AGAIN FOR ANY HELP!

    Hopefully if you replace the part at C503 and 501 it might come back to life. Hopefully you can find an image of that area to get the part values.
