This 7970 has been through some serious ****. It has brown spots on the board from heat. My case actually overpowered the video card's cooling system and dust caked the card's exhaust fins as air was being sucked in. The amount of heat emanating from the side of my case was epic. That was remedied, I have learned from that experience. The card later went on to support my Witcher 3 endeavors. Before the weekend begins, it will fold.
The 7970 brings back some memories! I never owned one, but held one in my hands right after their initial release, and could feel the power
I'd be very curious to know the PPD from it!
