    While mounting Arctic vga &!#$&" silencer (hint: throw in garbage that blue plastic and just use metal and screws and use some plastic as a pad and you will save yourself lot of nerves) I accidentaly hit my VMOD (5 & 7 pins with trimer) so now after wire got disconnected on pin 7 thanks to my good soldering skill that wire also took chip's leg with it. Now I'm missing contact of board and chip on pin 7. Well lucky me. Now before I screw something more I need suggestions what to do and can that pin 7 be 'overiden' somehow, is there an alternative for pin 7?

    thank you, B

    your screwed. you might as well try soldering the leg back on see if that works.
    (NOTE: i am not responsible if my advice kills a fixable card)

    One, your advice to the cooler is ****. Its your own fault you knocked off the leg/pin or whatever. You take that risk when you mod your card and if your lucky you MAY be able to resolder it, it just depends on if it tore the contact pad up or not.

    One, read once again to understand my post. I didnt say arctic coler has brain and arms so he punched wires out I just shared my experience because there was no way to screw those 2 screws at the same time, ok? Second Im asking for suggestion about pin no. 7 , thats all, ok?
