I don't want to risk frying the card. With artifacts, it can probably still work as a PhyX card.

TBH. It's worth a try.
Heat the oven to 385F and leave it in there for 10 mins.
After that, take it out and let it cool. Then throw it together and see if it works.

This is from experience: DO NOT THROW AWAY THE THERMAL PADS.
They're nearly impossible to obtain for consumers, and thermal paste will not cut it (you won't be able to make contact between the chip and the heatsink).

This specific heatsink has bulges to make connect with the memory chips. They look to be contacting just fine. Also, there are heatsinks on Ebay for really cheap $0.99-$1.99.

If no one buys the card, then I'll bake it. But until then, I'm just going to leave it as is =T

have you taken the black plate off of the aluminum plate? there's usually a lot of dust that gets trapped in the fins preventing airflow. BTW you gotta bake it and get thermal pads. the mem chips dont have temp sensors so even if the core is fine...

I didn't take the shroud off. It's harder to take off than more video card shrounds O.O the clips are very stubborn.
