Default Dead 4870+Oven+4870x2 = Tri Fire on the cheap

I bought a broken video card off of a member of another forum for 20+ship, threw it in the oven on 4 foil balls for 10 minutes at 400 degrees, took out, let it cool off, threw the HSF back on it and it's working great!

good deal, man. I've heard of that working for the 8800gtx cards with red lines or something.

What was the symptoms of the card that made you decide to put it in the oven?

Just wasn't posting. Ghetto re-flow did the trick.

depends on the solder type..tin (or lead) solder has a VERY low melting point (around 340-360F), some solders are even lower (near 200F) while hard solders (usually copper with either zinc or silver) having higher silver content, at or above 75% have melting points around 770F.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Solder#Lead-free_solder has an ok list of solders most widely in use:

Quote:
SnAgCu solders are used by two thirds of Japanese manufacturers for reflow and wave soldering, and by about ľ companies for hand soldering.

SnAg3.0Cu0.5, tin with 3% silver and 0.5% copper, has a melting point of 217 to 220 °C (422.6 - 428 °F) and is predominantly used in Japan. It is the JEITA recommended alloy for wave and reflow soldering, with alternatives SnCu for wave and SnAg and SnZnBi for reflow soldering.

Pretty damn neat idea!

So, if I understand this correctly- you strip off the HSF and anything else plastic/non-nylon, then toss it in the oven @ 400F?

I've frozen HD's... guess it's time to start baking videocards

Hmm, might try this with my dead HD 3870x2. Could be worth a few bucks if I can bring life to it again.

AWESUM!!!! I has many broken video cards that I was hanging onto just to wait until technology advanced far enough where fixing them would be feasible and cheap.

Or the RAM coming off of the PCB and making a bad contact, hence the ghetto re-flow.

Sadly, my 4870 died and made it's way into the trash.

Amazing job, simply amazing! Medals and promotions all around!

Thanks for this trick, I'm gonna go figure out some cards to try it on...I actually am excited!

Might be an old thread, but it got me crazy enough to try it on my Inspiron E1705's dead X1400 and I'll be damned if it isn't working now!

7 minutes in a 400F oven, I can't believe it freaking worked! Thanks again to the original poster and Humus for kicking it to my attention.

I had to! This thread gave me the idea on trying that on my wife's laptop's GPU, seems like it'd be wrong not to say thanks.

I'm still freaking that it worked. Watched 2 movies on it last night and left it on all night and it was still fine in the morning.

I was trying to find cheap ways to fix it and the bloody price of the GPUs for that laptop are insane. They range from $250-500, and I was having no luck finding anything on the cheap.

This was cheap, it also worked. Happiness is achieved.

It's not just the fact that the laptop is working again, it's the sheer joy I get at thinking about how odd the fix was. It'll be fave geek story of mine for years I can tell already.
