Hi all, my RX 470 nitro+ died while gaming and I got a replacement from store a "refurbished" same model.
I opened it since it looked used too much- I am sure it was ex-mining cards since it was very dirty under cooler(same if you stuck your finger at your car's front wheel and get dirty black finger lol).
I see many caps soldering on back of the PCB where the VRM are, and the VRM's look different- square with metal exposed: IR s4458 - does any one saw this on other cards too? is it better?
