Good to see that there were no capacitors popped during the baking process. jerry.gif

I baked my video card twice before, and each time right after baking it, it would boot up and have all those random pixels and lines across the screen and corrupted video ram warnings. Originally I thought my baking was a failure, but I left the laptop on the warning message page for a couple of hours and came back and saw some of the corrupted pixels seemed to have disappeared. As a test, I kept the laptop on overnight and by morning, all the corruption was gone and the laptop was working fine as new! The second time the gpu died again, after I baked it again, I left it on overnight like last time and it fixed it just the same.

So don't immediately assume your baking was a failure. Leave the machine on overnight and see if things clear out. I think it has something that has to do with the video memory getting screwy after a baking and running it for several hours will clear it out again. The precise physics behind short term video memory corruption after a baking, I don't know. Maybe someone who understands gpus more can fill us in.

This is just an update from this post: http://www.overclock.net/12067525-post418.html

It's been 2 months and the 9800 GX2 is still running strong. I have the fan set to 100% to keep the temps down, the highest it has gone is 80C and that was after a day of folding on both GPUs. It idles around 48c.

I noticed it doesn't perform as good with more recent drivers in older, low hardware stressing games like CSS and warrock.

Someone must have asked and got answered before but I am a little lazy to go through all 45 pages to check. So, can someone explain:

--Does the high temp (300C inside the oven) affect plastic component of the card which cannot be removed, eg the plastic part of a PCIe power connector ?

--The entire card will be heated up, including the GPU, Vram...etc. In normal usage, you do not want the GPU to go higher than, say, 105C. How can it survive 300C temp without damage?

I'd let it cool and be careful not to touch the plastic, as it will be soft.

The card can survive the heat because it's not on .

The entire card would have reached thermal equilibrium with its surrounding (ie 300C environment) and so each component of the card is ~300C. So, regardless whether it is on or not, the GPU will be at or near this temp.
