If she really was a good girlfriend, she'd put the heatsink on after taking it out the oven. Lazy women.

On a serious note, that trick is really interesting, i almost want my 4870 to die.

Thanks for this, I inherited a smoke damaged (Clogged with tar) 4870x2 to add to my system. I stripped it down and gave the fan and radiators a good clean but it is still giving 7e on boot with drivers loaded or hanging and occasionally refusing to POST.

Here's how it looked inside:
Fan:

Primary Radiator

Heat damage to RAM thermal tape

Close up on the Primary GPU area

Cleaning the fan - Washing up liquid bath


I'd been clutching at straw on where to go next, it sounds like a bake is just the ticket since cleaning it out didn't help.

I've had success on various 8800s inc GX2 in the past but had heard it didn't work on Radeons. I guess the temperature difference matters. Now what's 425F in C? ~220C

It's about to go in:


in she goes


7 minutes later - the fan header is a little scorched


Back from rehab - that tar wasn't just tobacco!


It didn't work


Might try a longer bake
