HIS Radeon 4870x2 - A few pins partially black, should I be worried? Tags: Radeon Graphics Last response: June 15, 2010 2:58 PM in Graphics & Displays Share dooodo June 15, 2010 1:08:43 AM I purchased this HIS 4870x2 used. When I received it today I noticed these pins partially black or burned or dirty, I don't know. The seller assured that the card works but should I be worried? How did this happen? I've never seen it before. It looks like it's either dirty or the gold has been scraped off or burned...

I was thinking that if the general consensus was I got ripped, I'd contact the seller and try to get a refund asap... m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !

Anyways, the only way of knowing is to try it, hopefully it will work. This's why I don't buy used unless I can meet up with the person. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
