  • 9800pro Toasted?

    So,
    I got home last night, fired up the rig, and didn't get any video signal. Pissed off, I left to get a sixer of Old Style so that I could clearly think out the problem.

    Turns out, my video card is not working. Sapphire 9800pro with an Artic Cooling VGA Silencer revision 3. Linked here :

    So, checked Sapphire's forums. Multiple posts about dead 9800 pro cards using the same cooler. Damn.

    So, now I want to reinstall the original HSF before I send it back. However, I do not have any of those pins that where originally used to mount the HSF to the core. The ones that you push through the HSF and the card, and expand a bit once completely through.

    Does anybody know the name of these little guys?
    Does anybody know where I can buy some?
    I'm really really bummed out about this card.....was supposed to last until my next major upgrade

    Any help would be great.

        They're called push pins. If push came to shove (no pun intented), you could always just buy a cheap cooler and scavange the pins off of it.
