Killed another video card, my ATI 9700 Pro bit the dirt, thank goodness for the 5 year warranty

Guess we will see what comes back from the RMA

I blew up a stick of my Crucial Ballistix PC4000 memory in the test rig.  All of a sudden the system went horribly flaky and wouldn't boot.  As it turned out I corrupted a couple of installs of Windows and had to reinstall everything.  Good news is Crucial is sending out new RAM and a postage paid RMA box.

My X800 Pro kicked the bucket yesterday, when I boot the PC, all I get is random white lines all over the place. Thought it was cooling, but everything is snug as a bug, fans work and all. So now I get to send it to ATI for warranty repair. Luckily I had an extra 9600 Pro lying around that will suffice for now.

Well I now have a dead HIS Excalibur X800 Pro.  I sat down at 6:30 tonight to do one more test before I finish writing and uploading my article on TEC cooling.  The plan was to share the load of the system between two power supplies by putting my two raptors and the X800 on the secondary power supply.  After swapping molex connectors the system refused to boot saying the card was not plugged in.  So....back to the old configuration of running everything on one power supply.  Stlil nothing.  I managed to get my SFF box up and running.  I tried it in that system too and still no go.  So I've declared it...DEAD!  But I don't want to upgrade my whole system to accomodate a new pcie graphics card.  So until then, I'll try and find an ol cheapy agp piece of crap to shove in there so I can retrieve my files.  Maybe after a few pay checks and I can get some new gear.
