tested it yesterday late evening, entire screen was full of stripes and so.

I thought it hadn't dried up perfectly. this morning: I even don't get a screen

after removing CMOS battey + cmos discharge: NOTHING. power goes on but that's all
GF2 nor TNT2 boots. without videocard, even not a beep

that's one high-quality gainward GF2PRO down the drain and one KR7A-R mainboard.

Next time use a steamer.
That pan is conducting the energy from the flame right into your card. The water itself can't get higher then +/-100C The pan can.

PS, a blue flame is about 1500C

yeah very funny, you were quite pissed off too when (you thought) your mainboard was fried

mainboard is dead, but I'll try to RMA the card. gainward offers 36months warranty, now gotta find a paycheck of such a card. the idiot from who I bought it probably lost it

mainboard is fine, a PCI card got loose causing the mainboard not to POST

I'll give all pics from yesterday this evening

ah well, the cooking trick busted my card. but hey, now we know that the method isn't very reliable. I sacrificed my card for this, let's hope I can RMA it now
