The worn circles look like you gone in with a socket which is to big and pushed down to hard as you have unscrewed the hex bolts , damaging various parts on the pcb.

Looks like pliers were used and not carefully to be sure. Nvidia will never honor that card for warranty after they inspect it. Very expensive lesson.

As far as I'm aware that law doesn't apply to the US and Canada. But that's besides the point. I'm still running everything at stock. No blocks. No clu mod. Just want to make sure I don't have a bum card before getting into that.

Best thing for anyone is to get down local hardware store and get correct hex socket bolt / driver ie 4mm an use that.

I couldn't remember if the hexs were 4 or 4.5mm. Either way, using the little wrench I had or using pliers, it was fine. But with 2 X cards you are talking close to 24 of them so the potential to scratch something mission critical goes up a bit with fatigue.

Wise move. Since this is my first all Nvidia release , not sure what they going to pull if I have a problem . EVGA I can depend upon.. Nvidia ???

They probably won't repair it. You're gonna have to buy a new one.

The SM8 looks ugly full stop.

Has the looks from something about 15 years ago.

Dated and boring.

In that boat myself. I couldn't find any hex screwdriver in all the do-it-yourself shops around me and even in the only hobbystore. I ultimately bought mini pliers and started the monk job telling myself "slow...slow...don't take the risk of leaving that steady hand for 1 sec"

and after going through the pain of having to do this for 2 cards I was so happy that EK put simple philips screws in. Not for the love of my life would I put those hex bolts back in !! smile.gif

Yes it's kinda scary:
