Default Crypto Mining vs HD7970

Ah, the joys of mining for cryptocurrency. This used to be a Gigabyte HD7970 Windforce... underclocked and undervolted since the day I bought it used off a fellow crypto miner.

Thought you guys might enjoy the carnage shots. Massive VRM blowout. I think this one's beyond repair. Definitely out of warranty.

Second one in a month to go down hard for me. Last one was a Club3D with a terrible stock cooling design that had a fan failure over the GPU side. Overheated and went pop.
