Dead 9800GTX+, need advice

post #1 of 30
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, a client called me about his computer not posting anymore.
I went to his house and removed the graphic card and I finaly got some beep from the motherboard.

I took the card home and tried it as a second card.
My computer never booted.

My guess is that the card is dead.
I removed the plastic coverage and ...
DUSTTTTTT, CIGARETTE COLOR AND HAIRS everywhere on the heatsink.
I removed everything, reapplied thermal paste (cleaned the old one first) and added AS5.
I reassembled everything back but still no post.


I've read about Baking cards over the internet and I know some of you here already done it.
I would like tips so I don't burn my house.
What temps ?
GPU up or down ?
If something melts, wouldn't be better to be facing up ?
I know I need a pan and 2-3 bits of alu as feets so the card doesn't touch the pan.
Do I need to remove the DVI ports ? (IE the whole connector thinggy ???)


I'd use it as physiX if the bake is successful(even if it last a month I'd be happy to rebake it )

Just bake it man, sounds like you've already cooked it anyways. However i really wouldn't use it for physx, would be so overpowering and pointless. 9800gtx makes a great primary card sell it on if you have no use for it or keep it for backup.

Take the heatsink and TIM off, along with all other paper on the PCB.
Place GPU side down, elevated off of little aluminum balls of foil. Oven to 290*f and place GPU in oven for 10 minutes. Let GPU air dry, then reassemble.

That's why I'm asking, I never baked it ...
Looks like the first owner did it thought ( By smoking in the same room and not cleaning the card, I guess it overheated like hell).
There was a good 0.5mm of hair/cigarettecrap/dust in between the fan and the heatsink

I have a GTX 560 Ti as a primary card and concidering I got this for free, I wouldn't mind using it as a PhysiX card.

So GPU side down with a few balls of foil in a pan at 290*F for about 10 minutes.
I guess I can't really miss this one
Let's just hope it works !!

Any other tips before I burn my home *c0ughh* ?

I baked an 8800 awhile back. The person I baked it for never told me if it worked or not but this is the guide I used. Thought it might help.

Thanks a lot !
I read in that guide that the temps I want to bake it at is 385-400 ...
I'm a bit lost about the oven temps
post #7 of 30
baking works but i wouldnt call it a PERMANENT solution.. i actually baked my old 9800 GTX+ and it worked for maybe a few months. Plus everytime you bake it you have to take it apart, take off all the thermal paste.. if it doesnt work long for the first time just tell him to get a new one. THey don't cost too much anymore

How i baked my card: 1. Took the card ALL apart. Don't leave ANYTHING on there. YOu just want the PCB. (i left the plastic plug ins on it didnt get hurt)

2. remove all thermal paste

3. get aluminum foil roll them into balls to let the heat get everywhere on the card.

4. bake the card at like 300 or 400 for like 10-15 minutes and reapply thermal paste and what not and hope it works.

I got it free
And I sold the guy a 3450 512 MB $50

So I guess I'm a 9800GTX+ and $50 richer than before.

To be honest, if I bake and it works I'll be so happy even if it works 1 day
After all, it takes about 10 minutes to remove all the screws and the rad.
1 minute to clean the crap on the CPU, 10 minutes to cook it and another 10 to reassemble.

Spare time + free stuff = gooooood


EDIT: Alright I'll aim at 300 degree first
So hmmm, leaving the VGA DVI ports doesn't matter I guess ?

meh it always took me forever to do the thermal paste. I would just alcohol and cue tips lol. But if you have time then its really worth trying
