X850 Problems
Yea.. basically. I think I killed it :)

danrok 31st March, 2005 10:10 PM

No way!

Is this an early April Fools?

Pitch 31st March, 2005 10:13 PM

Nope. I have heavy artifacts on everything. The temperature show -128 (?!)

I'm going to flash the BOIS, stick the old HS on it and see what happens.

I think I'd rather watch the girl crawl out of the well then crawl out of my TV and eat me than go though this again! LOL

My poor wrenched, miserable friend, surely God has some great thing in mind for you and is testing the purity of your spirit!

How did it break...this time.... ":O}

I think I found the problem.

There's limescale or somthing on my sound card. Looks like that Maze4 has sprung a leak.

Don't You Ever Do That To Me Again! Lol

Is the X850 borked or not?

Daniel ~ 31st March, 2005 10:23 PM

Everything should dry out...Please let everything just dry out...(crosses fingers)

Pitch 31st March, 2005 10:24 PM

Update. My soundcard is dead :boxing:

Awaiting the results of my quickfix recovery

As expected, it's totally dead.

Pitch 31st March, 2005 10:44 PM

I think I might have a good chance of RMA'ing this since I've only had it for 2 months. I certainly cannot afford to replace it with anything half decent.

You MUST be kidding! Where do you do your PC shopping? They must LOVE you! :)

I've got an old ATI card, I think it is a 9600, if you need one to tide you over let me know and you can have it. A mate gave it to me when I upgraded his box.

Pitch 31st March, 2005 11:03 PM

Well, TBH I plan to RMA the SOB. However It seems don't have any. Great.

This just adds to my day.

I should survive for now. Got to talk to OcUK and see what they say.

danrok 31st March, 2005 11:07 PM

They've got one type only in stock:
OcUK ATI Radeon X850 XT PE 256MB

Beautiful. Fantastic. I'm estatic. I've just thrown my water cooling system in the bin, I won't be going back to using it.

I have a theory as to what happened:

Water leaked creating an air bubble.

The bubble reached the pump stopping the flow of water.

Card over heated and the rest is history.

Two birds with one stone. Damn that Maze 4 is clever.

cadaveca 31st March, 2005 11:33 PM

can i have the dead card, if they will not RMA? i could use some of those SMD's. I'll pay for the shipping, of course.
