7600GT is dead :(

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
well, my rookie soldering skills have let me down... I killed my gfx card trying to volt mod it. It was an EVGA 7600GT KO - and i was soldering a 10KOhm resistor to the GPU voltage regulator circuit- and I dunno - i must have inadvertently heated some of the surrounding components too long or accidentally bridged something a caused a short, but it definetly doesnt work anymore .
ahhh -- i was too hasty - i should have practiced more-
anyways- does anybody have any suggestions? maybe i could RMA?

They wont let you RMA it when you were trying to Solder something on it
Guess its time for a new GPU.

Try, what do you have to lose. Any pics of what it looks like to see if it is easy to tell or not?

I don't think they will notice, just do your best to make it look like new, and if all else fails, buy my old one
