[ENDED][Freebie] HIS Radeon 6950 for parts/not working  

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 
I bought this card on ebay for $25, knowing that it puts lines on the screen. I was unable to fix it by reflowing the solder and hate looking at it in the corner of my room. I believe the issue has to do with a few damaged power phases - look at the pics to see a bunch of caps ripped off. I would like to see something happen to this card in some way or another. Frankenstein mods, decoration, etc.

REQUIREMENTS: know how/ability to do something productive with the card. either do some mad smd soldering, or Frankenstein power phases from another card or make art out of it. What ever you do, I want to see what happens to it. Simply post "in" and what you plan to do with the card to enter. One entry per person and I will use random.org to choose the winner on Chirstmas. If you post more than once, you get dq'd from the drawing. Winner pays shipping. Merry Christmas and happy holidays!

In if i might, my plan would be since i don't have mad soldering skills mounting it on my desk with a hidden 12v power source to the fan to make it look like it's running, and perhaps backlight it as well considering the shroud is transparent.

In.

Have been looking for a card to try out painting the shroud and/or other artsy things with.
post #8 of 26
in i can mod with it
post #9 of 26
Well I've always wanted to put my soldering skill to the test tongue.gif
If I can't fix it(probably not if it's missing random smd stuff), I'll just use the fan on this graphics card I have that is super loud.
IN!
