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