I wanted to see it so we could confirm it was a vrm failure, and not something else. Since i have never heard of a 5850 vrm failure, or 580 vrm failure (that i can remember)

Legit questions != trolling.....

And jean was a cool guy if you got to know him. But i agree he could be a jerk in some threads.

My failures were definitely VRM related on my other cards. I am in the electronics design business and can identify failure. Yes, I had a VRM failure on these cards. Card specific, I cannot say without further study. if someone would have posted a 580 or 5850 vrm failure notice, I am sure the haters would have come from all corners. I was not swayed by these failures as i now have machines in service with 5850's and gtx 580's.I was awarded RMA approval on each of these so no need to document at that time.

Just trying to isolate true design related failure with BS.

I was unable to recreate the failure scenarios at the rated speeds (below 850Mhz core , 2000mhz memory, 1.063vcore in the Lab so I called a BS alert. I specify these failure as normal design/flaw failures.

Personally, I'm of the opinion that it's not necessarily the VRM design, but rather there was a bad batch of cards that ended up on the market. We're still getting deaths because an individual card can sit on the shelf for a while, just getting pushed to the back by new stock. The VRM design could be failing because it isn't strong enough to overcome a manufacturing mistake.

I'd love to get the serial numbers/manufacture date/manufacturer on the cards that burn. I wouldn't be mildly surprised if we find most of them were created within 3-4 weeks of each other.

THE VRM design is lacking on reference cards but not enough to represent the failures that we are seeing lately at low speeds and voltage. Batch related problems would also be my guess if these posts were true.
