Never read such a cool review!
But why did the card not work after modding?
Ahh man thats the best bit of hte whole review .....
Stoopid boy ... there I was this morning lapping my graphics card (voodoo 4) and adding ramsinks....
How could you do it .... its a gainward gf3!
I presume you used your super glue technique .... I heard somewhere that superglue does something to RAM ... might be wrong
Could someone tell me what "FFS" stands for?
For F**K Sake
Class poem/review m8! top qualiteh
Shame bout ur card Did you use the supa glue trick on ur ram/core? Have you taken off the ramsinks/crystal orb to see if there's any damage?
I DOnT rECoN ITs PERMaNEnTLY bRoKe - lOOk IN THE DisASTER mODs FOrUM :d
Right - what you should do Haz:
Remove the ramsinks/orb and replace original cooler and ramsinks, remove all AS with isopropyl or whatever.
Phone up Gainwood and say its broke n dont work and get em to send u a replacement cause urs just died on you.
When you get a new one back - LEAVE IT ALONE
Might be hard if gainwood sent it to u for review cause uve got it on the net admitting u might have f00ked it.
Its not a plesent thing todo, but they make a good overhead per card as it is anyway and sell thousands of the things, but when its £300 a go..
Didn't pay for it, can't really do that Will get in touch with the Gainward guy and see if he loves he review enuff to send me a replacement
Sorry to hear about the loss Haz, I had a Radeon card do the same thing to me. I loved this line in the review:
I cannot say enough
How gorgeous this looks in life
If I didn't have a girlfriend
I'd make it my wife
Ahhh my precious. The culprit on my card was too much Artic Silver II adhestive. Some of it managed to get on the traces of the RAM chips and completely fubared the card. You have to be carefull and use less in moderation.
If he does, can I have your old one to repair?
Mwahah nice one
I think it's not really repairable , though but hey who knows
I would make a keychain out of it
Success! Well, sort of Gainward guy offered to repair it for me
Reparing i screwed card that got screwed due to moddage , whee
great article haz, but what can i say except, YOU RETARD!!!
Hope u get it fixed anyways dude!! *grins*
That was a high quality review, for sure. Glad you're getting it fixed...
