Default Re: Tesla m40 burned my motherboard VRM

I found the explanation from this guy.

Seems the memory VRM failed somehow, that is why L14 inductor is cracked and close shunt is also little bit bulged. Since it takes power from PCIex port that is what caused the motherboard VRM to burn. If 12v didn't got to VRAM is repairable. Otherwise according to a guy comment in the video if 12v go into VRAM it even damages the GPU partially.

Conclusion this card is not safe to put in another motherboard 100%.

Is just a bad designs from nVidia. Not even a fuse there.
