    Hi there

    I baked recently my EVGA GTX1080 which has died, stupidly I lost backplate where serial number has been and EVGA didn't wanted to honour warranty and baked my GPU because I needed that GPU for rendering

    If baking in my case has been successful, I would say yes, GPU is working and my old OC on that GPU works beautifully and no issues in rendering, how long this will last not sure but I'm very happy to have GPU working for now

    Hope this helps

    Thanks, Jura

    That is because your not fixing it, your just buying yourself sometime is all. Then you'll have to bake it sooner n sooner as your just reflowing the old bad solder is all.

    It re-flows the solder temporarily fixing tiny cracks but eventually it gets weaker and weaker

    It did last quite a few months after the first bake but less after the second
