Bake your Graphics Card in the Oven Fix " IT WORKED" - Page 48

post #471 of 748
I love seeing this thread pop up every now and then smile.gif

I've baked a few things back to life as well. Keep in mind if your card has faulty memory this will not work, I tried it with a Palit GTX 460 and it didn't do anything (I also suggest never buying anything from Palit or Gainward - terrible quality and terrible support!)

Hi guys! Another newcomer trying this out.
Currently I've baked the card (XpertVision 8800GT 1GB) for 10 minutes at 190°C. Once it's cooled down and reassembled I'll tell you about the results + share some pics.

Edit: So far the pc has booted up and ran some furmark. Temps going up to 80°C, idling at 54°C after the furmark session. So I might have to reapply the thermal solution once again. Haven't got time to post pics yet.

Will report if it keeps working w/o crashes!

Hilarious that this actually works. Personally, I'd be afraid of it becoming a bomb somehow hahaha. Also - wow you're extremely buff. The joke has more than likely been made 100x but sweet irl overclock.

Once again... Here I am, because this has worked for me once again.

My 570 artefacted and crash and wouldn't get into windows, with coloured lines on the screen and an nvidia driver bsod. Baked the card for 10 mins at 200c (395f), allowed it to cool, re-assembled and voila, working once more.

I rezzed an expensive high end graphics card via the bake method.

I'm considering doing this for my GTX 280. It was having issues before where if my card was not "warmed up" long enough I could not boot into Win 7 unless by safe mode. Now it's gotten worse. It runs, but now any time I try to do anything with DirectX I get the Pink Screen of Death.

I have a couple of questions though.

1. The card is "RoHS compliant" but even so, I'm concerned about the fumes. Will it ruin my oven to the point where I can't bake in it normally? If I have to clean it any particular way that's doable I will.

2. How long do I really bake it for and at what temp? I've seen different temps and times. Unfortunately the video from the OP is no longer available.

I just hope to get a little more time out of this card. Being able to do some gaming (not graphically intensive) and watch movies would be nice. I can't afford a new card for a month or two but when I do I might switch to Radeon for a change and get the 6850.

Thanks for your time and help!

No, dont be silly. make sure you completely strip the card of plastics and labels. dont forget you need some TIM to re-apply as well

350 for about 8-10 minutes, let cool for about an hour

haha all right, yeah I am maybe overly paranoid. thanks for your reply and yep I'll be sure to reapply some

I did it @ 375-400 and it worked.

Some people like the smell of the baking PCB. I like my GPU coming back to full operability.
