Well first you have to remove all the plastic on the board. I.E. the pci-e slots and everything plastic.
and i think the temp is like 250f?

Quick words of wisdom: Don't bake. Cover the entire card with tin foil film thingie and only expose the ram chips and gpu core.
Then proceed to point a heat gun from 10cm away to the core for 1 minute, then each pair of adjacent ram chips for 30 sec and finally go back to the core for 30 sec more. That should reflow the bga solder joints to make proper electrical contact with the chips. Let it cool down for 30 min and then re attach the plastic stuff and fire it!
I have vengeance 1600 and I use 9-11-11-28 with 1.6 Volts for 1800 and it works absolutely fine super stable.
By the way I delidded my CPU before a couple of hours (used the new hammer method lol!, operation was a breeze only a couple of minutes) and test it with Intel Burn Test at maximum settings and it run perfecly cool compared with before
Now it's 68-70 C at full load and before delidding 98 C!!! A gain of almost 30 degrees.
My i7 3770K runs at 4.5 Ghz
I'll try that, thanks. What is the command rate that you used? Congrats on the delid BTW
