Except it will be running 24/7/365 at 100% load on that 2970wx. I ordered a new motherboard, just hoping that nothing else blew. I did not have my cochlear implant on at the time, so no idea on noise, but the sparks and the smell, very bad.That's a solid capacitor, probably developed an internal short. It's in parallel with the others next to it, so if the card isn't under warranty, you could desolder it and see if the card works again. I wouldn't put it under extreme load missing the cap but at lower power states to check for life, should be fine without it.
Were those good quality ? It was about 3-4 years old. The replacement motherboard was $400, and others were $600. I only paid $300 new, but I guess its the same story as video cards.I doubt it was very loud, regular, non-polymer tantalum caps can explode and there's nothing left, but the casing on that is intact, for the most part.
OK, I can get a 1920x for $135, and then remove the bad cap, and test ?? What do you think ?That's a solid capacitor, probably tantalum polymer, probably developed an internal short.

If it's still alive, here's a potential replacement if it has the same dimensions: https://www.digikey.com/en/products/detail/panasonic-electronic-components/16TDC150MYF/10644021?s=N4IgjCBcoEwAwBYCcVQGMoDMCGAbAzgKYA0IA9lANrgCscABAK0BiIAuqQA4AuUIAqgDsAltwDymALKFs+AK4AnQiAC+peAHYU0EBkg4CJclXAA2egDV2XXpAEjxUmfKWq1IGCYAK2QbLIiaPQAKgAiAML0aNic2GiiZArsKkA
However, if there are multiple circuit layers, the failure could have caused damage that shorts those out too, so I'd definitely test the board w/o the cap on, before getting a replacement.
