Is there a way to Revive my faulty 6970. - Page 2

post #11 of 35
How did you "break" it? Just curious.

Your sig says you had it clocked to 1000/1400. What voltage was that at?

i didnt brake it tbh, it came like that out of the box, and was never bothered witht he small dots on screen as they disapeared after a few minutes mostly, then when i put my waterblock on it boom, it was artefecting as hell, then put back stock cooler on, and then it was "usable" again.

the cards in my sig rig are other cards.
in my sig i have 6990 and a xfx 6970 (same model as the broken one ), and in downloacked i have a xfx 6970 reference card. so yeah i pretty much have 3 6970's (1 broken) and a 6990.

Have you tried contacting XFX?

I recall reading somewhere that somebody lived outside of us/canada and always contacted xfx support giving them a heads up that they were replacing the cooler and xfx was cool with it. But they did contact support ahead of time. Don't know about your case.

Worst case, they say no.

Is it still at those clocks? What voltage is it at? I've heard voltage back-flow at idle has been know to cause artifacting.

yeah, I've tried contacting XFX, they basicly just said they couldn't do anything, not even say some **** i could check on the card or anything.

What did you do to the card before baking it that XFX did not accept it. Also have you tried down-clocking the memory. I also had a HIS HD 4850 go out like that because i forgot to cool the memory chips and was stress testing it with Furmark. All you can do is sell it to in ebay for someone to try to fix it or use the stock cooler..

I would try everything else first to see if you can get it to work and use baking as a last ditch effort.

Didn't do anything except for installing a waterblock on it, but xfx isnt mod friendly anymore here in Europe.
it was a full waterblock, and the stock cooler i had on it, so there was decent cooling on the memory chips.

And yeah, i already baked it cause i had tried everything i knew. but baking it hadnt had any effect on the card, so if you have some suggestions i can still give it a go.
