Title says it all :laugh:. I softmodded my 9800SE, a month or two later, I replaced the cooler with VGA Silencer rev.3 My card fell victim to a flawed tooless PCI device clip, and I think I bent the card. 6 months after purchase, my 9800SE was no longer is recognized by my system (but it still heats up, so the card has life, it just decided to retire). What are your various softmod stories?
