Seller admit it was a mining bios edited GPU

i went online and manage to save the card by reflashing the bios provided by MSI forum.

Thanks for the update.
Sharing our experience.
We received quite a few mining cards that were sent in previously too.
Most were in terrible condition.(Beyond cosmetic level damage)
Some were so oxdised that the SMDs on the inner PCB under the heatsink corroded away.
Double check the condition when purchasing ex-mining cards.
