  • Amazon Kapton Tape "Kapten" Ruins A Board

    I bought what was advertsed as Kapton tape from Amazon. Covered VRAM on a 2915 and stuck it on the BGA station for a new GPU. This Kapton tape melted all over the VRAM, pulled the chips together, generally killed my fun for the next couple of hours.

    I should have looked at the tag labeled "Kapten" instead of Kapton.
    Get your deals on Amazon. Chantel No 5, Rebook, Hike trainers, Bullberry check, Dolce and Grababanana... All great deals and 100% GENUINE!... MotherFff

    Why do you put anything on the VRAM? It is not needed ever! Just make sure to remove all the glue. Never ever put any tape on anything that may get reflowed as you only increase the risk of it moving.

      To be honest I'm not even sure. It's not going to protect anything at all.
