    What I'm interested in
    nVIdia: Quadro 3000M, 4000M, GeForce 675M, 580M or newer :)
    AMD: FirePro M8900, Radeon 6970M, 6990M, 7970M

    Hoping for only a symbolic price, but if GPU has no damage i can offer you 20$+shipping to Croatia.

    I cant revive them. Recently started to work as a service tech in a company that has necessary equipment to do so. I'd use those cards to learn rebelling/reflowing and precision soldering. We have few cards that have burn out VRM-s but intact cores and would try to make "zombie" cards :)

    Since I'm total newb at it and my only experience is with 10$ soldering iron from DIY shop down the street it will be quite some time till I'm actually able to fix anything, but you got to try :)

    Cards listed are supposed to work in my M6600 which I would use to see if they work :)

    Don't mean to burst your bubble or anything but with the latest generation of cards the solder attaching them to the board very rarely fails and as such a reflow/reball does nothing. Usually it's the GPU itself which fails or the GPU memory.

    Well it wasnt just for reball and reflow. One irl friend was messing with overvolting and overclocking on his k5000m and blew one coil, proffesional visual inspection ;-) .

    We manage to fix it by transplanting one from dead quadro 4000m, which we then used for learning process. Not to mention the fact that card look like ww2 battleground and i use gpu chip as a keychain.

    My intention never was to fix and to turn quick profit.
    In the meantime I switched position and no longer have access to this equipment and totaly forgot to ask to close this thread...

    You should start fixing next gen Xbox and PS4, for profits and learning purposes.

    I did that already....
