06:27 mupuf: Lyude: I have no idea how you would manage to brick an nvidia gpu... unless you are planning on unsoldering the vbios flash chip :D
08:11 KitsuWhooa: If you can do that, you can probably fix it anyway :p
08:21 mupuf: KitsuWhooa: not if you break the pads ;)
08:22 KitsuWhooa: Scrape the traces and put bodge wires :p
08:22 KitsuWhooa: Unless there's a via really close
08:27 mupuf: depends on Lyude's skills ;)
08:46 KitsuWhooa: :D
10:40 RSpliet: I've found that bricking an NVIDIA graphics card is as simple as removing the fan+heatsink and be patient
10:41 RSpliet: Could take months though... and you'll be wondering why your computer is so slow all the time
10:41 KitsuWhooa: where's that old AMD CPU going catching fire video...
10:42 RSpliet: "collateral"
10:42 KitsuWhooa: Apparently the link I had is "no longer available"
10:42 KitsuWhooa: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NxNUK3U73SI there :p
11:20 KitsuWhooa: A bunch of my old nvidia AGP cards seem to hang on boot. I sense more bisects coming soon...
11:21 imirkin_: people keep breaking stuff
11:23 KitsuWhooa: mhm, although I don't really expect support for ancient cards almost no one uses anymore :p
11:26 imirkin_: someone ripped out agp support a while back
11:26 imirkin_: in a way that it should keep working
11:26 imirkin_: but ... completely untested
11:27 KitsuWhooa: oh joy
11:31 imirkin_: (i.e. someone ripped out the agp aspect of it, i guess?)
