I was playing overwatch as I did normally and then the pc just shut off. Then I powered on my PC and it didn't boot or anything.

It's a 2 year warranty and I bought it in 2016 sadly :(

damn! sad for you. I had my AMD card burnt years ago in 1.5+ years . Though it was due to overvolatge and my display(TV) burnt too

Hope it didn't take any other parts with it. Hope your next card last even longer.

@yiannis2000 What specific brand was your gpu?
Apr 19th 2019 6:26am
I am very sorry to hear that. I went through something very similar not too long ago with my RX 460 Sapphire Nitro. Now I am worried about my hubbies RX 480 Sapphire Nitro+ 8GB

My friend has the same Sapphire Nitro +8GB. From what I heard he hasn't been gaming much lately and the card is holding up nicely.
Apr 20th 2019 9:47am
Yep I have the exact same card

@yiannis2000 You plan on baking the GPU?
Apr 21st 2019 3:44pm

Wish you luck in that pursuit.
