Just baked a GTX260... Wish me luck! Just letting it cool right now.

Anyone have success with baking video cards? What temperature and for how long? Seems like everyone uses their own settings if you look online. I did 370F for 10 minutes personally.

Actually baked a PS3 a while back and it worked. :bananafunky:

Yeah I had a 280 I brought back from the dead that survived another 4+ months of 24/7 folding before it died again.... it was displaying pretty much the same symptoms so another bake might have brought it back again but I didn't bother.

I baked a PS3 about a year ago. Coincidently the guy I did it for messaged me last night saying it's acting up again. Same yellow light of death issue. I told him to scrap it and buy his kid a new one but he wants me to do it again. We'll see if works a second time. I think it was 350*F for 15 or 20 minutes.

Revived an 8800GTX a few years ago. The fan would come on, but it wouldn't output any signal. Still works to this day.

Yeah, I've done it lots too. 385F for 10 min.

Did a 9800 GTX, folded it for 4 months and still works great. Baked my motherboard in the Asus G1S laptop, lasted 2 months until it died again. Recently did a AMD 5970 and a 4850, still working good!

Did a friends 2010 MacBook pro. It was just out of warranty with no apple care and it died. Found out it could be the Nvidia chip on the board and so I thought I had nothing to lose and bake it. So far its been going 8 months straight!

Your guys ovens are in Celsius?

I think you mean F at 350 / 370

350 C is 660 ferenhight. most ovens in Canada have F temp settings.

even a few minutes at 660 C your board will be a mess !
