Leaves the question, do i package it up and RMA the 6800GT, or do i throw it in the bin and sketch it up as a mistake. :\ sad as it sounds, every time you RMA a product you broke, god kills a kitten. The honest thing to do is just try your hardest to fix it, maybe talk to nvidia / your manufacturer on the phone about it and if you cant save it buy a replacement. RMAing it, even if they will accept it back which is doubtfull if youve messed around with the thermal interface material and the heatsink, is really not the right thing to do, as if they do replace it, they are paying for your mistake, and by they, i mean the customers that the manufacturer pass on their warranty costs to.
