Hi I recieved a dead Gigabyte motherboard with core2duo e6750 and 2x1GB Kingston KVR. Afther some research i discoered that the chipset is Nvidia ,so I take al the components from the board .also NB heatsink and placed it in the oven for 4 minutes and baked it at 250 degree C. Afther that I let it sit there and cool of in a natural way. Installed al hardware and booted succesfully! Now its running windows 7 and overclocked to 3.4GHz 8x425MHz fsb ,not bad for a Matx board
So, it was a completely dead board before you baked it? I've been hearing about it being done on graphics cards and motherboards for a while now.... but was curious about the success rate. Isn't the basic idea behind it to re-flow the solder?
