Has anyone attempted to remove a damaged 1R0 inductor from a GPU before, and if so, what method did you use? Was it successful? I’m going to be attempting it, and want to know if there’s a best practice.

some disclaimers:
  • this will be on a GPU that I got for super cheap second-hand, mostly for the challenge of trying to resurrect it.
  • the previous owner already attempted an RMA, which was denied due to physical damage to the card. Sending the card back to the manufacturer is a non starter.
  • the non-functionality of the card can’t be definitively attributed to the inductor, but it is obviously damaged - large cracks across it.
  • this is just for the fun of it
Thanks!
