Well, as I understand it 113-217XTHYE-S01 is the one to look for on a new or replacement card. Correct?
I was getting close to flashing the bios
but you're right, hold my horses.
I will check those transistors that you're talking about. I like to know if they made real changes to the card. I can't make any pictures though. Can you tell me what to look for exactly? Our cards must be pretty similar looking at your sig. Mine is Sapphire 7870 OC version.
S01 seems to be the favorite, yup. However, we just had someone receive an O02 and I haven't seen them post since which leads me to believe their RMA card works fine. So I suppose it's hard to say.
I believe the culprits are the resistors right under the GPU. For whatever reason, and I might be misremembering, I seem to recall that on the card I RMA'd, the center of the resisters had a brown-ish or red-ish hue, where as on this card they are silver.
See anything along those lines?
