There's a thread on the evga forums on how to fix copper traces, I'd link it for you but my phone's being dumb.

Neat but I'm not really fixing traces because those are beyond repair fixing traces is easy for those on the surface just use a so called liquid metal pen.

Thats are hard fix. The traces are useally so close together. But would'nt your liquid tape seperate them? I cant think of a better way beyond cutting a gap between them. Its probably very tight and one wrong move could cut the line. Wow hope you figure it out.

I would try and find some liquid electrical "tape". Non-conductive, can be applied pretty precisely with a fine brush, and handles heat pretty well.

I've tried removing minor amounts of pcb so that the traces have nothing covering them but it is like 8 traces stacked in less than 2mm. Anyhow this has to be postponed for a week since I'll be departing for England tomorrow.

Hello guys yesterday I continued working on the card the problem was that it would short everytime instantly due to milling holes in the pcb.

What I did was remove the short by doing as little damage as possible removing the area where the jolt was created time after time making use of my phone's camera to localize it.

After removing almost half a square centimeter of pcb and traces and sealing it up partially I was able to boot. The bad part is that various things will be broken due to the massive pcb removal in which most certainly important traces were present.

The DVI ports are most likely beyond repair simply because they are located straight behind the hole. I have no idea about DP and HDMI and really gave nothing to test with currently.

However there is also some terrific news and that is that the card does now indeed show up in device manager and once I'll have the cooler mounted tight enough I can start installing drivers hoping it will be detected.

If the display outputs fail however it'll be a good excuse to get a second 290 for CF or get a cheap card for display out.

Just a suggestion about the heatsink.make that something that holds the mugen`s weight ...that would probably break/bend your card since the heatsink`s weight isnt Distributed

Nah the Mugen isn't mine that is just what the guy that sold me this card did to the card before I got it. Along with milling holes which caused it to short and no longer work.

But I have it fixed now and the only thing that is gone is the DVI ports I just hope the DP or HDMI port still works but it shows in windows so worst case scenario this will be the cheapest CF addon card ever thumb.gif
