Dear AMD support-team,


I am writing this email because I need some information of one particular component on the PCB of a XFX Double D HD 7970 with the OG AMD-layout.


The reason for this is because I wanted to install this GPU (my old one, has been stored in a shelf) in my sister's PC, which would have allowed her to play certain games. She currently has a water-loop, so I decided on going water-cooling with the graphics card as well.


While installing the new cooler, I accidentaly chopped-off a capacitor on the back of the PCB, which was marked as "C525". Since the card doesn't work anymore, I think it was important, duh...


Currently, I'm not at home and therefore can't share the serial-number with you, but as soon as I get back I'll let you know.


Since I'm not that unfamiliar with repairing electronics, I wanted to ask if there are any chances for me to get the capacitance of this "C525" SMD-capacitor, so that I can order a new one myself? Can you inform me about the correct value?


I'm looking forward to hearing from you soon, thank you in advance!
