Kinda reminds me of that song "Humpty Dumpty" ... Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall, Humpty Dumpty had a great fall. All the king's horses and all the king's men couldn't put Humpty together again"Yee I finally got a GeForce FX 5950 Ultra!
...well, at least this is what I thought until I saw it

This thing was watercooled, delidded and caught fire at some point of his life
...after some serious amount of IPA and paper towels I managed to clean it at this level

The previous owner sold me the card in a set (MB/CPU/RAM/VGA) and at first he was sure the system booted some times ago, but when we discovered the barbecue he was not so much sure
Anyways, what do you think?
Should I try to see if the card is able to POST before replacing the roasted components? Any idea if those components are vital for a POST / no load?
Is it even possible that this thing is not dead after part of the power delivery exploded?
(btw Cxxx stands for capacitor?)
