I got it from chaintech. The description sounds much worse than it was. When I bent the board you could 'hear' it crack...but there was no visible crack....as for everything else, it looked COMPLETELY normal...the heatsinks were just superglued on but who could tell that
The only sort of actual NOTICEABLE physical damage was on this little tiny black box near some capacitors and that thing didn't want to budge with the needlenose so all it did was put a little groove in the plastic....and that little black box is smaller than a dime soooooo yeah.... Considering they sent one back with a heatsink about 2x the size of the original and little heatsinks on the 'black box' that I had originally tried pulling off...I think they had heating issues with that card and had a lot of replacements for it and they had to redesign it as far as cooling goes. It also didn't help at the time it was running in a comp with stock HSF and no case fans and the door open, CPU was 64C IDLE so god knows how hot it was during gaming.
Like I said, I think I just got lucky, they probably glanced at the card, didn't even notice the scratch in the plastic on the black thing, threw it in a box and sent me the 'revised' one and just thought 'Oh another one of those overheated ones' soooo yeah. Uber lucky on that, and nothing computer related 'good luck' ever happens to me lol
