Hey guys, recently I had a gpu fry on me and as it was overheating it melted off a component on the motherboard. Should I replace the motherboard entirely or run it as is? The motherboard is a msi z390 tomahawk. picture

If you're referring to the smd that's missing in the middle of the image, have you tried sourcing a replacement part using a donor board off Ebay? You might want to contact MSI regarding the issue and see if they will initiate an RMA. It's not supposed to be happening since there's no slot located near where the affected component is.
