It's a pot shot OP, I always tell people that the only time you should get ready to bake a card is the moment right before you toss it in the trash. Even then don't expect to get anything out of it, just consider it a scientific endeavor to learn more about electronics.

The card worked for a while (after some careful cleaning) but showed artifacts again after some time. After that i didn't bother anymore.

Hope you can solve it with the bios flash.
I can't believe you just gave up and threw it away like that after the third bake... What a waste....
