Ha, ha. The guy had a problem with the card with pink screens of death and lockups.

So he baked his 280 into an oven at 380 degrees with foil wrapped around it. After baking the cake it tastes so delicious that he can easily put thin layers of 3d mark 11 and any types of games on it and eat it.

But the thermal pads of the memory chips are wasted during the grill process and he is looking for a solution.

It is his first post guys. Give the fellow a brake.

If not for this site, and informative sites like this, but mainly THIS site, I would have never have pulled this off and would have trash canned this card.

It's outta warranty now anyway, had nothing to lose. Was getting the pink screen of death I guess, only every once and a while, and only after the system was started from a cold boot.

The first boot of the day after waking up it would crash if I tried to game, after restarting it would game just fine for hours. Crashing eventually became an everyday thing. Only once though. On the first boot of the day.

Restart and it goes away until tomorrow. This went on for over 2 months. In that 2 months trying to locate the cause for these pink screen lockups with white blocks scattered all over the screen I took all overclocks back to stock, pulled my NIC, swapped RAM around, re-seat video card in pci-e slot, played with bios settings, and redid vista 64 a good dozen times. Fresh format and everything, each time with a different driver.

Problem wouldn't go away. Whole time from what I've learned I was quite sure it was the card or driver acting up, but was in denial, I baby this thing really, never oc it, always turn fan up when I game to like 80%.

Never seen this card get bogusly hot before either. Once I upgraded from a 650tx psu to the hx850 I could tell the 280 didn't like it at all. Crashed all the time. Got to the point where it would boot into windows, but not much else without a lock up. Was starting to get desperate and don't quite have funds to upgrade yet. So stripped my 280 down and in the oven she went for 10 minutes at 380 degrees, wrapped tin foil around a cookie sheet, rolled up some tin foil balls to elevate the card an inch off the cookie sheet. Placed the PCB GPU side up when I baked it.

Took all plastic off even LED cover. Card looked exactly the same after baking, let cool for about an hour and reassembled. When I disassembled the card the heat pads were a mess and no I it wasn't me. Pads were brown not white at all, prolly from dust build up and huge just all over the place . A real mess. Seemed like EVGA used wider pads then they needed on the heatsink on my card. Cleaned it all up real purty, but I didn't have thermal pads to replace the ones I removed. Ended up using regular white thermal paste on all the memory chips, Antec kind. Used the stuff I got with my Hyper 212 on the GPU. Some gray looking grease. Didn't wanna use AC5 the GPU or the memory. So it's been a week now and I think it is safe to say my GTX 280 bake was a success. No more crashes, lockups, pink screen, white blocks, nothing. Games fine. 3DMark fine. ATI artifact tool fine. It seems the bake killed the bug in this card.

My idle GPU and memory temps are alittle lower 2-3 degrees, but while gaming so far it only goes to like 65-68 degrees. No longer 72-75. So question is do I have to replace those pads? And if so with what exactly? So far I'm happy with my temps, kinda used alot of white grease on the memory, but wanted to make plenty sure good contact was made. Did a pretty clean apply on this one too. Wish I took pics of everything. Watching GPU and memory temps with AIDA 64 like a hawk.

Like what I see compared to the temps I was getting. Anyone else rocking their card without the thermal pads??
there you go, spaced it out for you.

Yes, you need thermal pads, or enjoy some burnt up VRMs in the future.

Ok will space next time sorry. Any special thermal pads to get? Thinkin bout some 1mm thick regular ones on eBay, idk. No funny smells from baking the card either.

Glad to see you took the effort to get more life out of your card! I love the GTX280's...

frozencpu has a nice selection of thermal pads, pretty cheap too.

Only real reason I'm askin about the thremal pads is cuz I got lower temps under load. Alot lower.

Wasn't much dust buildup in card either when I took it apart. The old heat pads were so smashed they looked 10 levels worse than any pic or vids I could find of a 280 disassemble.
