For Sale:
Faulty Sapphire Reference HD 4850 512MB [SOLD]

Will Ship To: UK, EUR

Hi all,
Up for sale is my old HD4850, its been a great card, its been running in my rig since the HD4k series launch.

Unfortunately it has recently become temperamental, therefore is being sold as FAULTY. Because of this there is no returns on this item.

Here is a description of the fault -

The fault is with the memory. Sometimes it runs perfectly fine at the stock 1000Mhz, other times it will artefact/blackscreen at the desktop. Earlier today I ran furmark for 30 mins with no problems at all, so it is an odd problem. It may work just fine if you downclock the memory (I guess you could even flash the BIOS to be lower), I've not really had the time or inclination to troubleshoot the issue if I am honest, I just bought a HD 6850 as a long overdue upgrade biggrin.gif. Might be a baking project?

This could be a possibility to pick up a great performing card for a great price. It is the single slot reference version, I've had an Accelero S1 on it all its life so the stock cooler has only seen a few hours use. The card has two DVI ports and an s-video out. Being single slot is quite rare for such a powerful card. Note that I did cut off the VRM cooling area with a hacksaw, this makes absolutely no difference in use, and is barely noticeable, there's no manufacturers warranty on the card now anyway, so it doesn't make much difference, but thought I had better mention it. Being reference means that volt mods are actually much more common for the card, so might be an interesting project to play with.

The card comes boxed, with no accessories (I think it only came with a molex>6-pin cable anyway, if you desperately need one I will try and find it). Its a little dusty and the box is a little tatty from storage.

I will re-iterate it once again, the card is sold as faulty, buy at your own risk.

Price: £18 posted to mainland UK, EU buyers PM me for a quote, it may be cheaper than you think!

Any questions, don't hesitate to PM me!
SOLD

Not really other than over 3 years of being on 10 hours a day. My bet is with the memory just having degraded, about a year ago my overclock of 1080mhz on the memory became unstable, so I lowered it to stock and it was fine. Now I think it needs to be even lower, or have the memory voltage bumped up a bit with a mod. I could have troubleshooted it more, but I don't have the time and new stuff is more fun anyway biggrin.gif
