If its the soldering and GPU is dead, it might work. But it has to be at a certain temp. I am not sure exactly what kind of temperature allows this to recreate the broken channel. Someone else who has tried can explain.

Its a luck game. 

Human eyes are unable detect cracks between the soldering of the board, which tend to do happen for the stress the board goes through. Baking the board will melt and re-connect the channel.

Not that it will make you feel better but I feel your pain. I have a 480 that seems like its about to give up the ghost. after running 3dmark Firestrike I have suddenly lost 1000 points from my scoring. Put some more pressure on it and the card goes bat crazy for a bit. So im just hoping the ones in the locker are still up to the task. Time to break them out.
