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... | Report abuse dooodo June 15, 2010 1:44:06 AM Anybody think this will affect anything? | Report abuse Related ressources Looking for a few Opinions - Forum MSI 7950 vs XFX DD 7950 Quick reply please - Forum Problems with Radeon HIS HD 6970.
