Many years ago I was able to get into my hands a voodoo 2, little did I know that the card was damaged.

Lately I found the courage to at least sand the tmu to show the copper, it came out well but I can't really fix the soldering mess neither the soldering of new traces going from the tmu to the board.

If anybody feels competent enough and had experiences with these kind of repairs I'm willing to send the card for repair.

For the actual replacement, there is no charge.

You just pay for shipping each way.

If you’d like to donate a one or two TMU’s for the effort, it would be much appreciated- but in no way required. I also have no idea what the seller charges for replacement TMU’s

Note that I cannot guarantee that there will be no other issues once the chips has been replaced.

I’ve repaired both of my Voodoo 5500’s and a Voodoo 1, so I have experience with the cards.

This sounds fantastic, send me a PM with the information for the shipping, at this point i'm willing to try repairing it regardless.
