    Thanks for mentioning that Steve, it may just need a reflow. Stachu does a great job replacing the socket with a heavy duty setup and it works great. He overclocked mine a some and I never had trouble with over clocking, I just had great fans and sinks. Does the CPLD fail with the heat?

    Thanks everybody for responding.

    I contacted stachu100 to see what repair options there are, as I don't feel the need to upgrade.

    No worries, I really hope you can save this card having lost one myself ( dead cpld probably from overclocking)

    Reason I mention the upgrade is because I believe the chip needs to be removed to reball so might as well upgrade to a faster cooler chip.
