    Had a little peak. There may be a little trace here under the red arrow. However, If I were a betting man I'd say that LM didn't harm this GPU

    The laptop came with the lcd fried from one side, this caused a noticeable burn mark on the bezel. I disassembled the whole laptop and removed the lcd to check for damage beyond the lcd, luckily there was none on the motherboard or gpu. I have ordered a new 144hz lcd and am waiting for it as we speak, should be here by Tuesday...

    The bios detects the rtx 2080 perfectly which makes me believe that not having an internal screen is indeed messing stuff up.

    I can’t say yes or no. It’s easier sit right above the chips. But fried components due LM leakage is normally easier see than from this pictures. Hope you get clear answers from RMA (When they open it).

    Edit. Checked the components below the card?

    My GTX 1070 mxm die has liquid metal leaking on all sides, the thing is that I taped the corners well and heated the tape after putting it on to make the tape glue stick to the gpu. This creates a kind of liquid proof seal.

    Yes the liquid metal looks like it has gone underneath but you can usually get a tissue and just lightly try taking it off. If it doesn’t move then it is underneath. Nevertheless it does look like HID did a **** job on the gpu, I would have done it better for you!
