It is possible that a complete reflow is not necessary. Just enough liquidity to repair the cracked joint.

And there was some good advice about not bumping the oven while doing it. When the solder goes liquid the surface tension should hold things in place but if you jar it then you could move a component ( = bad )

You also need to let it cool before moving it. I would open the oven door after the 8 minutes and that way you let the solder re-crystalize and everything firms up. And that would also reduce the thermal shock of a sudden cooling. The manufacturing reflow overns go through a controlled cool down so that is what you are shooting for.

I wish I had a dead card to try. I had a 7900GT that stopped working but I tossed it out. One of the few times I have ever thrown something away
Oh, I also ment 500fahrenheit not 500celcius. Geez... 500C And yes, it looks like alot of people do use 400F, and I also read the cooling process.

p5q pro-turbo sounds like a great choice, as is gtx 275's. sexy setup.
I'm curious - any specific reasons why to avoid7xx series motherboard ? I have some nvidia series motherboards and they work 24/7 not a single issue.

Nvidia has not made a worthy chipset since the NF4.

I noticed a few degrees drop since i pulled the nb fan and heatsink on my 780i. Talk about GOOP! I cleaned it all up and properly applied IC7. runs a bit cooler now.
