after baking it all the solders did become more shinier so they did melt again. hopefully this isn't just a temporary fix. so happy that I got it working again. I'm gonna stress it some more and see if it's truly stable

sorry for that man. btw, for those who doesn't know, we have lots of mosquitoes anywhere in the philippines, can't leave your door open, we have lot's of bugs too, specially spiders.

i remember when i first got here in america, i was LOLing at my boss because he and his family was too afraid of a little spider crawling on the table, and i just literally picked it up, they were like WTH? afterwards i learned that american people aren't used to bugs, insects, rats, etc.

exactly. you can't really get those buggers out of your house/ they just keep coming. Im from Navotas whish is really the wettest part in manila so mosquitoes are more prominent here than any other place in the city.

lol ikr. im not really scared of spiders. when I was a kid we play with them and let them fight on sticks lol. cockroaches are a different story though. esp when they're flying I temporarily grow a vagina, scream and run around like a little girl lol

I let it cool for 30 minutes then installed the graphics card again. omg it worked. IT'S ALIVE AGAIN smile.gif
I'm stress testing it atm. it has been running prime for 30 minutes now and temps drastically improved as well. I had to clean it up really good and replaced the tim with the noctua tim that came with the NH-D14. I just put a little and didn't bother spreading the tim coz I thought I "cooked" it too much. alas temps are great and the card is working again smile.gif man I hope it lasts. so happy right now biggrin.gif
in your face you dead mosquito!!
Awesome! Glad to hear that the baking turned out to be successful! Hopefully you won't have to go through this again. smile.gif
