9800pro Needs Some Tlc

Recommended Posts

Ok so my buddy has a 9800pro, he installed it and then closed his cover and started it up, what do ya know, his aluminum fan somehow clips one of the heatsinks on one of the memory chips and Zing!, the chip flys off the board.

So the pcb aint broke, just the chip cracked in half and pulled the wire stems through the pcb.

Now the tricky part, does anyone else have a ATI brand 9800pro 128mb card that doesnt have the memory chips covered? I need the serial numbers of the chips so that i can get a replacement from a local electronics store, im just gunna solder a new chip on and bam, if it works i get the card for $50. Not to shabby, a decent upgrade from my gf3 ti200 :ph34r:

And are they the kind of thing you can get from your local electronics supplier?
I personally wouldn't have thought so, but I could be wrong.

I got a dead radeon 9800 Pro. If you wanna buy it you can do whatever the hell you want with it.

Seems like the guy I asked to mail me the last things i need to RMA the thing skimped out on me
