What's wrong with this card? - Page 3

post #21 of 25
There's no need to worry about what it is. The functionality of the card is the primary concern.

If it works, then just remove the remaining flux residue using rubbing alcohol. It's purely cosmetic.

Not for me. If I buy a product advertised as NEW, I want a new product, not used product. Even if it hasn't been used much. And anyway, to begin with, that's false advertising and another merchandise law that I can't remember the name of. So even if I would be okay with it, it still violates 2 laws. wink.gif

I can bet you it's unused. AMD cards, for me at least, have come with this residue. It's a lot easier to notice too since mine have black PCBs. Rubbing alcohol will get the residue off of the PCB.

Without knowing whether the card works or not, there is still no case against the manufacturer.

EDIT: No laws have been violated either.

You must've missed about the cotton fiber on it. Cotton fiber didn't come from the manufacturer. The most logical explanation that I could come up with is someone else disliked the card, bring it back, they taped it again and sold it as new. Therefore, laws have been violated, because it is not new. It is, in the best case scenario, repacked, which is still not new.

By the way, I believe manuals do come with cards, and this box didn't have it.
