How can i fry my video card? Part2
I would like to start saying this: Could people please keep their PERSONAL opinion to themselves and only comment if you actually wanna contribute? Thanks!
I read, laszlo thread (http://www.techpowerup.com/forums/sh...ad.php?t=52167) where he is seeking help to fry his card.
I, like laszlo, wanna be honest about my purpose:
I wanna RMA the card. The card is a GTX 590 and I have about a year of warranty left. The card is from Zotac and is NOT being manufactured anymore nor sold by the retailer where I got it from.
The card is extremely loud and consumes a lot of power. By RMA it I will probably get a 680 or perhaps can make a deal with the retailer giving a few extra $$$ to get a better card. Who knows?
Wether or not I will get a new card or money back is my own problem and I'm willing to take the chance.
So how can I "destroy" my gfx card? I have really tried a lot of things by now.
I tried flashing the bios, no luck. I have tried to OC the card, no luck.
I read about some bad drivers that would 100% kill the GFX card but they seem impossible to find.
Anyone got a good idea how to kill it so i can RMA it?

The link you posted should have given you plenty of answers. And a hint - that thread is locked and it's in the General Nonsense part of the forum, as this one will be in a couple of minutes..
We don't condone purposely ruining hardware to RMA on these forums.
