Interestingly I was researching earlier and found a video exactly about that! Thanks for the reassurance!If you do, be sure to use flux.
The beer is ready, along with a symbolic coffin for my 700€ (jk).still don't believe for a second you using this card is what borked it. I think the seller likely knew it was problematic but "hey it's working now so I'll just keep my fingers crossed it keeps working long enough to sell and wash my hands of it" and you were the one to happen to purchase it. Which if it is a standard 5700 with an XT BIOS could be a contributing factor....again...that is nothing you did wrong. You are only guilty of buying from a non-reputable/trusted source.
Yea I would agree if you are at your end of choices for troubleshooting it and the GPU is not useable, then anything is worth a short at this point. Good luck. If it doesn't work........Pour one out for our fellow GPU homie.....
Thanks for the reassurance. Even thought I did submit a report to the police since this is a scam by all means in several ways (XT advertised, non-XT sold.. money back if not working well guaranteed...) I think I'm done with the guy and will just drop the charge.
Hopefully at least the online marketplace does something. The time and costs it can bring are not worth it the 700€. From a perspective of a part-time miner it sucks, but I'm fortunate to earn enough from work to afford making mistakes or I wouldn't risk it, so I'll just man up, take the loss and try to study better the cards I'm buying and stress test them properly.
Anyway, will update soon then!
