    Something about microfissures in the solder preventing video cards from working properly, resulting from using the card (ie thermal fatigue).  Baking, in theory, is the ghetto way of reflowing your card so that the solder melts and removes the fractures.

     

    Some swear by it, others say it's a temporary fix at best.  Assuming bad solder is to blame, of course.

     

    Just what I've read.

    +1 pretty much, the mircofissures are a result of the card being used daily.

    Things like this always make me wish I was rich. Not so that I could buy lavish things for myself but so I could do this exact sort of kindness for others.

    Exactly. Repay people, who've done kind things to you in the past. Doesn't necessarily have to be large sums of money like in the commercial, but being able to give back. It's an awesome feeling you get, when you do it.

     

     

    Doesn't even have to be people who have been kind to you in the past. Just someone you met minutes ago would be nice, random acts of kindness is lacking around the world.

    Ahh saw this on facebook not to long ago. Very well done ad, however I've heard people say the company doesn't have that great of a level of customer service and commitment.

    So marketing wise it was tagged as emotionally manipulative.

     

    However it was easy to understand and the simplicity really gave the viewers the ability to connect together the points of the video. Probably woulda won some awards if present at a video festival, to bad it was a ad. x.x

    Wait, its an add? For what? I figured it was just one of those, make the world a better place video motivation things that people are always sending around.

    They've made pretty good ads before too.


  4. Fred, I seem to remember your past experiences with baking is somewhat questionable? ;)

     

    Haha about that... I never figured out what was actually wrong... whatever that burning smell came from its gone now.... 

     

    Lets hope its the GPU if it starts making that smell again. Don't wana deal with PSU RMA...


  5. Hope

    helps

     

    On another note, I actually want my GTX 460 to burn out so I can get it RMA'd for something new. Love how I still have Lifetime warranty with EVGA on this thing, ever since it was a Geforce 9800GTX+.

  7. How is it in terms of comfort-ability? The popular Steelseries Siberia V2 praised for how comfortable it is hurts my ears because of the shape of my ears.... My Sennheiser HD 280 Pro also hurts my ears over a couple hours of use. 
     

    I'm born with bad luck with headsets I guess x.x
