ouch.

well see what you can do with it

ive personally saved some cards by playing with the voltage/clocks but

its a bit risky.

btw, hows weather over there? my bud was sunbathing not too long ago on his terasse lol.

Not-so hot you might say...
Will wait until the end of 2011 to buy a new card, or even further.

My System Specs

Thumbs down

Tested card on another computer, results: card is completely dead, now even BIOS crashes. I'm now using the onboard VGA, most games are unplayable (Dirt 2 at 2-3 FPS vs 4850 40 FPS).
Somebody can close this thread.
