Re: 6800GT Dead?
You have to be carefull with AS5 since it is conductive, don't overdo it. If you are comfortable with opening your card again (note that this certanly voids your warranty, but you already know that I presume), take out all AS5 you have put there, wipe it all clean carefully (with some dry cloth and alcohol) and make a small film (just to cover chip, you can use razor blade to disperse it), take care not to smudge PCB or corners of the chip with it. If your cooler is cooling your memory chips also, you can put AS5 on them also. When you are done, make sure card firmly sits in the slot, and that cooler is actually spinning (also don't forget the 12V power cord).
