Not every damage occurs instant. There is always the damage over time possibility. Most of the defects happen after longer periods of stress.

In short we need longterm stress tests and more experience with this card and behavior.

Although we need to take a whitelist for what hardware worked and which may have been compromised. Everything else is unprofessional.

Fine, I'll do a burn-in tonight at stock voltage to prove you wrong. This whole entire shenanigans is just dumb, but if it makes you feel better, I'll do it.

Not like I have anything better to do. Ot of proportion is out of proportion no matter which way you slice it.
