Striped screw on GTX470? - Page 5

post #41 of 62
I think your best bet is to dremel a slit in the screw and get it out with a flat head. Thats a great idea I'll have to rememeber that trick.

You could also try JB welding a small screwdriver into the head of the screw then twisting it out after the jb weld has cured, just be sure not to get any on the card itself.
this is not a bad idea. i would try this if i were you, OP

have done this myself many times with R/C cars. Works like a charm.

Also suggest Superglue or some sort of non-conductive adhesive to attach a screwdriver to the screw and remove.

Also if the cutting wheel is too thick to make a small slot, go easy with it and remove the entire head of the screw, remove the heatsink, and replace the screw with a new one from the hardware store.

Any of the above will work just fine if you have the cahones to do it. I know I would!

If I just remove the top, the shaft will still stay in there and be even harder to take out, no?

LOL @ dremel. His screw was bigger, and more off the OCB though. My dremel would DESTROY the tiny thing.

I just pulled the trigger on another 470 (for 390$) and I'll try to sell mine here or locally. It would work fine for stock cooling or with a GPU block, or even some aftermarket air-coolers I think require you to leave the cooling plate on.

The shaft will be in the cooler, not attached to the wafer (PCB)

Isnt $390 a bit high for a 470?

Its an EVGA Superclocked one at least, and my current one should recoup like 330 of that.

Only other option was a Zotac for 370 with 30MIR, and was like screw it I already spent 2 grand.

That's the EXACT one I'm getting
Pricematched at NCIX. No free shipping but I had other things in the order as well.
