I think that it is hard to determine what exactly will happen if you reboot. If the card was in the middle of a critical event and you reboot, it is possible to brick the card.
If the card passed the critical stage and you reboot, you most likely will be ok.
Unfortunately you are in between a rock and a hard place.
Hopefully, the warranty covers bios flashing and that it is still under warranty.
