Yesterday I was looking at my crapped cards, and saw some of them were missing components. So I thought, why not give them a go?
I picked up a burnt 9200SE, and started scavenging components.
This are the results of the massacre
The card did artifact a lot all across the screen, and needless to say, windows didn't even boot.
It now works great, and in fact, it can even be overclocked!!
This one was missing a resistor from the timing carrier of the DVI port,, so needless to say there was no image at all. Installed it again, gave image, but artifacted a lot. Replaced a main capacitor that had became loose with another one, and it now works like a charm
Results with these coming soon
