Hooray for underpowered OEM PSUs.
Edit: Follow-up video, where he rebuilds the PC and gets the 3080ti working.
It's an old I7-7700 refurb computer.
He pulled the GTX 1070 out of it and installed a RTX 3080ti in it, so that's on him.
Anything for video views of his channel I guess.
The system should have shut down cleanly, instead of blowing up the power supply. Putting a high wattage GPU in that system was a bad idea, but shame on MSI for putting a junk power supply with bad overdraw protection in it.
An OEM 450w PSU from 2017 with a RTX 3080ti. Nope.
Crap idea, crap video, just clickbait to get views.
