Re: Looking for Upgrade - Dead GTX 280M

/headesk i wish i could remeber if the card itself was the same for both sides.. i know the heatsink isnt but what i was gonna say was change the heatsink around (apply new thermal paste if pad is damaged)  and try the secondary as primary ,  the only reason i mention this is to rule out a motherboard issue  but this is at your own risk but if you already tore it apart im sure your capable of verifying if the actual card is the same.
