  1. I get home from work the other day, and smack my keyboard with my hand as per usual, waking my computer up from its 8 hour nap. I toss my keys on the desk and my vid card fan goes to 100%, my display doesn't initialize and in a panic I flick the power off on my PSU. Shit.

    Turns out my voltage regulators are fucked and my computer won't post unless I squeeze the rear of the card (where the VRMs are) against the main heatsink, bending the pcb. In GPU-Z my VDDC Phases are off, sometimes showing #1 and #3 as working fine, with #2 conspicuously absent of any reading. Sometimes #2 is working but the others are gone. When I bend the card toward the heatsink all 3 show up as normal...

    Freakin' weird, man. So I got a Sapphire 6870 on the way, should materialize tuesday.

      What kind of card was the one that died, for curiosities sake?

      Perhaps it could be solved by reflowing the solder, using a heat gun or maybe a toaster oven?
