    Let's see - I started using them when I first started water cooling my GPU's - the good 'ol 3870's. Then used Koolance water blocks on my two 4870's. Then of course I hae them on my two 470's. I have always been impressed with their quality and cooling ability.
    So I guess that I would say they are working well for me:)

    I once had a rig completely water cooled by Koolance, minus a bit or two. Great stuff but never used them again. Since then I really haven't water cooled much.

    i would try to bake it, it looks like the part where the power conections are, the resin in the solder started to bubble...means she got VERY HOT. wouldnt wonder me if she now has a cold solder spot, that needs reflowing

    in germany, its called "kalte lötstelle", so my direct translation is not directly wrong;)
    probably he could try soldering, but as far as i know. most times 9800gx2 overheat too much, they need a reflow, in order to work properly. i guess you could combine both, when the other one not works;)
