    Hi guys recently 3 weeks ago more or less i baked my xfx 7970 like a charm =). Now my uncle´s laptop is dead.. Gpu only because it always give no signal.. My uncle have a heat gun.. Which distance should i do the process( between the gun and the gpu?? Thanks in advance =)
    I can insert here a screenshot if it helps..

    There is no carte blanch answer for this. Different guns have different settings, heat levels and air flow rates. I.e. I have a gun that's 400f and another that's 700f. Just gotta be careful and attentive

    Apparently electrical solder will begin to reflow at ~400-420F. How people are doing this "Trick" at lower temps makes me scratch my head.

    Heat source doesn't matter, as long as you're not melting plastics (I believe the plastics used in the construction of motherboards are of a very high heat tolerance to begin with). You can use an oven (gas or electric), heat gun, whatever, as long as you are careful.
    I have always used 350F and it works fine. I reflowed several components including a laptop and TV mobo using 350F. The downside is it never lasts that long. Typically a few months at the max. Also, a quick Google search shows electrical solder melts at 370F, not 400.

    Just repaired a GTX 680 last night. Was crashing any time I put it under a 3D load before, it's running smooth now though after I gave it a little attention with my heat gun on high.

    Put it through multiple runs of 3DMark Firestrike and Catzilla. Seems to show no signs of instability.

    Never mind, it broke again three days later. After another reflow, it didn't get any better.

    Was previously giving artifacts at the desktop after it had a few minutes to warm up, and blue screening whenever given a 3D load to process.

    Now it seems to be working normally, I ran several benchmarks (Aquamark3, 3DMark2001SE, 3DMark03, 3DMark05, 3DMark06) with multiple runs on each and it showed no artifacts and no signs of instability.

    Oh, and three years later this GTX 570 still works and is in one of my backup PC's. It's a sweet one with 96.9% ASIC Quality, glad it could be resurrected.
