This one had wings

TechTuber NorthWestRepair has shared a video showcasing a bug finding and repair of an Nvidia GeForce RTX 4090 Founders Edition where the problem was an actual insect with wings.

According to Tom’s Hardware it appears that the bug got between the GPU and PCB during assembly and ended up in bug heaven (or the iOS as we prefer to call it).

It is unclear how an insect got into an electronics assembly cleanroom let alone become part of a GPU sandwich.

The GPU didn’t work but did show some signs of life so the owner had a stab at fixing it and the cooked bug was revealed to the world.

After a lengthy clean-up and re-ball session, NorthWestRepair fixed the GPU back in place, and testing revealed the once-dead RTX 4090 was now full of life.

The video ends with the YouTuber testing one of the GeForce RTX 4090 FE in 3DMark benchmarking apps, and ensuring it was ready to be put into service. We are sure the customer would be happy with their new bug-free gaming experience.
