Doesn't work, and i have no feeling in my finger tips due to my job so i have no clue if it has a different texture.

Though all four of the legs on the left of both IC's look a little "dry"
whats up with C158? and the pads to the right of that look odd...
what exactly are your probs with the mobo/gpu?
C158 looks fine? i could be the angle of the picture that make it look funny but looking at it now in person it looks alright? then again i don't know for sure. Also i cleaned everything on this pcb before i took the picture to make sure that it's not any type of dirt or grease.
what happened last night was, bought another 5770 and a 460 ( 5770 for crossfire and 460 for folding ) went to turn it on and heard a pop. everything on the lower half of the board and the cpu fan header stopped working. i re-tested the 5770 and the 460, they both still work. haven't had a chance to retest the mobo yet, need more tim to switch the cpu back into it.
