8800ultra voltmod gone wrong

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
I decided to voltmod my 8800ultra this afternoon, soldered the gpu and memory redout points, going well, then when i went to solder the vgpu, my iron just melted the bit im suppose to solder to? i stoped and plugged my card back in and it booted up but i get pink dots all over the screen. Can this part be fixed/replaced? Heres some pics i took thanks

If its just that one part for sure then its gonna either be a surface mount cap or resistor, both of which you can find very easily at an electronics hobby shop.

I just have no idea exactly which one you need and what specs its gotta be.
