So, basically I have a dead MSI 1070 Ti Gaming without warranty. The person whom I bought it from had opened it. It just needed a bios flash, but while I was busy trying to bios flash it, I heard an electrical buzz and my pc went off. Now, when the gpu has the 8 and 6pin plugged into it, my pc doesn't switch on at all. I think blown caps, but cannot see any physical damage on the gpu. Any advice would be gladly appreciated :)

So does your PC come on if the 6+8 pin isn't connected? Are you sure your psu isn't the one causing problems.
Your best bet would be to try A: a different psu then B: a different motherboard.

PC comes on without the 6+8 pin connected. I tried with the 6+8 pin my gtx 980 ti runs with and still the same issue, so the PSU isn't a problem. I haven't tried a different pcie slot. Will try the current pcie slot my 980 ti runs on. Thx

When you say it does't turn on you mean no fans and motherboard beep or no image?

Try with the GPU connected but the screen connected to onboard. I don't see why a broken GPU would prevent system boot.

Sound like a short-to-ground. Best would be to get a schematic or test a identical card with a multimeter. If you boot with no power to the GPU or just the 6 or 8 pin connected, what happens?

If I boot with no 6+8 pin the LED's of the GPU is lit, but no fans spinning and my pc boots fine. If 6+8pin is connected pc won't switch on at all. It's like there is no power cable plugged into my pc and I am trying to switch it on. How do I test short-to-ground on the gpu? I have a multimeter, but I am not at all too familiar of testing electronics. I know how the caps look like and thats about it...Thanks for the input :)

I'd say bake it... since theres no warranty, might as well give it a go... just do some research on the correct way to go about doing it

Have you tried with JUST the 6 or JUST the 8 pin connected?
