    well bro i hope you recorded the PN and SN down of that board so that way you can determine if you got the same one back or not.

    If they fixed it I would be happy but I think it is beyond fixing. Probably got some kind of microfracture in some solder somewhere on the card. Idk.

    I did record all numbers and have pictures of the card in its pristine undamaged not working state.

    ok well honestly id rather have a new board sent to me because the previous is a damaged item, if they are able to refurb it great.

    Got the card today. It is a slightly different card. The heatsink/pcb is slightly different. It is still reference.

    I did run into a few problems. At stock I was almost hitting 90c. So I took off the heatsink. Found they had put a thing on there to see if I took off the heatsink. Also found about an half once of TIM on there, no joke. It was over a about 1mm thick and everywhere. So I cleaned that. O spread on a thin layer of mx-4 evenly on the core. Now I get to about 65c at stock.

    The gpu overclocks like a champ. It can get to 1200mhz on stock volts. My last one got to 1150mhz.
