Another GeForce RTX 4090 16-pin Adapter Bites The Dust

Previously, two GeForce RTX 4090 owners reported experiencing 16-pin power adapter meltdowns. Both have custom models, the first owner using his Gigabyte GeForce RTX 4090 Gaming OC and the latter user he was using Asus TUF Gaming GeForce RTX 4090 OC Edition. A third report is from a Facebook user ( Hassan Mujitaba (opens in new tab)), who happens to have an Asus TUF Gaming GeForce RTX 4090. According to the owner’s factual account, he was benchmarking when he smelled smoke coming from the power adapter. Luckily, he was able to pull the connector out before damaging the graphics card.
