Why don't you just use TPU capture
New bay res for a ddc pump, installing in my TJ08-E.
Repaired a XFX 6770 yesterday of my sister's friend. It was not giving any display along with VGA init beeps from mobo. Cleaned it and replaced some caps. Popped it in. And Bingo!
Voltage regulator(replaced some SMD caps here)
Memory voltage regulator
Coolers and heatsinks
VRM Heatsink(could not clean it because of thermal pads, card was in horrible condition)
SMD caps on reverse of GPU die
After the repair work, I washed the card with water(it was in horrible condition) and isopropyl alcohol, dried up the water by using the blower of a vacuum cleaner. Cleaned the heatsinks as much as possible, applied fresh thermal compound and cleaned up the excess soldering flux I used. Connected the card, powered on system and Bingo here goes!
Played BF 4 for 2.5 hrs and COD Ghosts for 3 hrs. Super stable even after overclock.

wow ... it turned from "sexy" to "dusty and rusty" ? ahah nice one
which caps did u replace? i want to replace the caps on my gts450 but cant find solid caps here.
I replaced some SMD caps in the vicinity of the GPU voltage controller. Since there is no way to read the values of those caps, I just took the size into consideration. I salvaged some caps from the legendary 2005 Intel motherboard and soldered it onto the corresponding sections. They I washed the card in water completely and with isopropyl alcohol to remove the flux I used. That was all I did.
EDIT: If you need to replace solid caps, you don't necessarily have to use solid caps only. Find equivalent electrolytic caps. They will work equally good.
Two random pics testing new camera. Have ton of new stuff around. I just need a proper macro lens so I can go REALLY close to hw.
i have been told by a cap guru here that they dont work equally. they have different properties
neat but not even remotely close up enough indeed
Its luck and trial and error. I match both colors and sizes and they always worked for me. Previous repairs done by me in case of HDDs and motherboards and mobile phone PCBs.
taking about solid and electrolytic caps.
Oh. Yeah they work too. I have seen repairs done such a way. You have to find the correct electrolytic cap in place of the faulty solid cap.
2 boards and a few 4930Ks. Save time binning

This chip is worth the time for cold test
Those DirectFET mosfets are amazing really. Thumbs up AMD
