Still going strong
I built my rig just over six years ago with:
SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 7970 OC 3GB 384-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card (11197-01-40G)
10 days ago it failed for the first time in the middle of Prey: Mooncrash. Both monitors went completely dark - the card crashed.
Rebooted the machine and got artifacts spanning the height of displays, until it would crash again before even loading Windows.
Exposed the GPU core and applied heat directly to the core with hot air rework station:
Held the the nozzle a couple inches away from the core and slowly moved it around on both sides of the board at 70% heat for ~ 5 minutes. Not very scientific, yet this yielded improvement. I could boot into Windows without the card crashing, and there were less artifacts on the screen, but the resolution was low.
Applied heat again. This time used FLIR camera to get real data. Got GPU to 160C+ for 10 minutes. PRESTO CHANGEO! Been working like a champ for 24hrs.
Lucky to work in electronics lab.
