Cleaning old video cards, w/ die shots!

Recently got a bunch of older video cards and thought I would show why it is a good idea to clean, check, and replace the old thermal compound!

*For some reason it won't let me upload my pics, will keep trying*

I wonder how well that memory got cooled since there was no thermal pads or heatsink compound. Should I put some thermal compound on the memory???

MSI Radeon 7970 OC. The die on this card has a mirror finish and no writing.... When I had it cleaned, it was so shiny I could hold it facing the TV behind me and watch it as if I was looking at it. Very shiny!
