I have a Falcon mobo that I JTAG'd myself as soon as the hack came out. To my dismay, the box started freezing with graphic glitches today (vertical snowy white lines, garbage sound).
Doing some searching, it sounds like a have a RROD waiting to happen. I was hoping to get some advice from the experts on next steps;
- Try an X-clamp / heat gun?
- Try a reflow repair? Looks like some semi-reputable dealers on CL. Anyone have a recommended dealer in Vancouver, Canada?
- Proceed directly to a reballed GPU from Ebay, and get that reflowed on?
I'm in love with my JTAG'd box, and it breaks my heart to see it dying! To make matters worse, I sold my insurance box literally 24 hours ago after sitting on it in the closet for months and thinking I didn't need it any more
Thanks for the advice.
