xtreme solder job!
 
I found the chip that i fried on my dead 8rda+.

I dunno how i did it, but i succesfully replaced the broken one! 8 tiny little legs and they all seem to work. Hooray for madness! :super:

I think i broke the AGP port by frying the little bastard (killed my ti4200), but the PCI ports work fine. I did a quick Vdd mod (you'd think I'd learn out of my mistakes, no?) while my soldering iron was hot: 1.8vdd, should be gould enough for ~215mhz stable.

The bios had gone bad too, but i managed to flash it in my new 8rda+.

Currently stressing the board at 11*200. Joy! Joy! :feesten:

Together with a loud aircooler & my second XP1800+ JIUHB i have an excellent backup rig. A shame the AGP port may be dead... I've got a Matrox Millenium PCI card, but it doesn't support 1280*1024 @32bit (only 8bit)... what's the best PCI card one can get nowadays? GF4 MX440?

Does anyone know whether the Sapphire ATI 7000 32mb DDR PCI is a decent (pci) videocard? TV-out is important, and ATI has a good rep...

It's 'only' 60 eur @forcom.

KS1@xtreme suggested to try an 8x AGP card, because it uses a different voltage than the 4x (r8500) i tried.

Guess what, it works. I'm one happy camper. :D
