Crossfire Connector Damage


Just wondering if the Crossfire connectors on a GPU are likely to not be functional if two of the little gold pins on them have a 1mm chip out of the tip on them? As in, the full length of them are there but the gold has come away. Asking since I'm sending a card back for a seperate issue and don't know if I should bother to list it, I can remember seeing the damage a short time after unboxing it and I but I didn't throw it around installing it, I'm pretty sure it was already there but not 100%.

  1. Generally not since the contacts are making contact with the PCB at the back end of the strip.
    That means the contacts in the CF Bridge are about 2 mm from the outer rim of the bridge plug making them come in contact with the back end of the CF fingers present on the GPU.
  2. Thanks.
