Default GPU reball or replacement

I am thinking about a reball action for my 2 MSI Geforce GTX 260 Lightning BE.
1 of my 2 cards started succesfully untill a few days ago but showed artifacts today. After cleaning and taking the cooler of, it gave me a black screen (same as my nr.2 card).

I was wondering if anyone has done a reball for a graphics processor.
Is there anybody out there who has tried it? The gpu is a G200-103-3B.

I was wondering if anyone has succefully replaced a gpu as well.

I was doing it for some time, reballing and chip resoldering - couple years ago. Problem with those chips is, that chip is damaged itself, not balls below it. It may work for a week or two after this operation and die without any reasons.

It would be better to replace chips from working reference cards...

Thanks, I was looking at that as well.
If I let someone do it, it is expensive.
Do you still have the skills?

For reballing need big big experience. It is science for itself. I talk about reballing with many people.
It's a conclusion is need very very expensive tool for reballing to do
that this thing done well. As far as I know Smoke do reballing for TEAM RUSSIA

It can be done with 150$ hot air station and 25$ electric grill as a heater. Trust me Good flux, bunch of stencils and 60%tin/40% lead balls with proper diameter. It's not magic, just need some attempts and patience. Took me a month, day after day, to gain skills to resoldering gpus.

Point is, that chips have factory defect. Reballing will help only for a while. That's why I forgot about it. You're doing the card and after a month it's a dead again. Sometimes it won't help at all.
