=) probably. It was an open box 790x that for some reason required uber amounts of voltage. I smelled smoking one day and thought it was the power supply...board ended up dying a few weeks later. Ironically I'm pretty sure I had sinks on it when it died.

Lesson learned and I will have sinks on any kind of power circuitry be it GPU or motherboard from now on and hopefully avoid buying boards with crappy chips.
