    Wow man!
    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

    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 :D

    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..

    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 :D


    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.
