Hello,

Günther from Germany contacted me via eBay - where I offer to fix V5-6000 - and he sent me his V5-6000 3700 A. He explained me his card dead 10 years ago and he tried to fix it with not luck.

Here the Queen- it looks so nice.


Later some fast test I saw Chip HiNT was not very well placed and many balls had not contact with BGA pads.



Here with ZOOM camera checking Chip HiNT zone.


Curious about this is Chip HiNT is detected via pci.exe (register) but for some reason in the BGA process some balls did not melt onto the pad when used original HiNT chip bridge- my guess is possibly in first rework is used PLX Bridge Chip with leaded free balls.

Once taken out the chip HiNT I saw pads had a film, as if card had onto the pad welding with leaded free doing a film not allowing the union between pad and bga balls. I do not recomend it, please always use original Hint Chip with leaded balls.

I had to clean PAD by PAD and welding each pad with lead tin until all pads looks as below picture. I had many problems for taking out the film and can 'painting' with leaded tin onto the pads.




Reworking BGA process ended with perfect positioning



V5-6000 waking up later 10 years- amazing feeling.


8xFSAA TEST


An amazing V5-6000, very rare, since it does not need Hank's Rework for perfect function working with FSAA enabled - a jewel.

Regards,
Oscar.
