Windows 7: I think I fried my GF9600 GT

I filed a small complaint with NE, basically saying their "UPS Guaranteed 3 Day Service" wasn't that true. The CSR said that 3 day shipping starts the day after the Currier picks it up. My order was processed on Wed the 20th, and three days from that is the 23rd, and NE said that UPS doesn't ship on weekends for NE. So it'll arrive on the 25th.

So lesson learned, if you're going to order from NE, better place the order on a Sunday or Monday, maybe Tuseday, so it'll arrive by Friday. Or spend the extra money on 2 Day, Next Day ..etc..

Anywho, the CSR refunded me the shipping .. props to them

If anyone interested, how ghetto is this



With the 12" fan on High, I can play WoW on the lowest settings @ 1024x768 .. lol With those WoW settings, and the fan like that .. the IGP is usually around 55*C, and can get to 62*C.

LOL looks like my server

My server is doing ok i picked up some good cards for cheap on ebay for it i had a Geforce 9600GT in it also it hit 100'c (Before i put fan in it) and then about half the ram was gone 364mb left still worked on some apps so i got a Geforce 9800GX2 for $70AU for it and now i underclocked it by 80MHZ and installed afew Server Cuda apps and converters now it runs at 41'c idle and 55'c under load when Folding, WOW, Badaboom and some other coold apps.

So i put the Geforce 9800GT on the Media Center to replace a X850 Radeon so ++ it all works XD still no BSD yet since Jan this year

I also OCed my old Geforce GTX285s on lan pc to 740mhz core 1500mhz shader core 1466mhz Ram (Ntune) Fans at 100% and there at 43'c idle and 56'c Load under crysis at maxed and AA4x

This is an extreme way to go and I would only attempt it if I was absolutely certain the card was bad and out of warranty,and done with plenty of ventilation or even wearng a resporator.

Temperature and time in the oven are critical. As well as breaking the card down to just the PCB board.

Well for S&Gs .. it's baking right now at 385*F for 10 mins. Will report back if it worked or not.

FFFFFFUUUUUU!!!

One of the little spring-nuts holding the heatsink & fan broke!! If I use the 3 on there, it gets unbalanced covering the GPU. I'll try it with just 2 so its more even .. HOPE IT WORKS!

If you're going to keep the card i have some spring pins for the heatsink and fans. Would just need to know or see what it looks like since some are different.

If you have a camera take a picture if it and I can see if I have the right one, or I oculd just send you an assortment to pick from.
I wonder if you could use one of the smallest zip ties and feed it through the hole then take another and zip it up from the bottom to secure the heatsink???
