Serial stickers has came off.

Serial stickers has came off.

I'm so frustrated with Gigabyte right now. I have 4 RTX 3090s turbos and I noticed when I cleaned the workstation that the serial stickers were gone. With a lot of searching and praying, I found the stickers blown out of the case.

The GPUs were full of grease and dust so I cleaned them and want to put the stickers back but there are 16 possible combinations.

On the PCB there is a unique ID sticker that was not affected by the grease and heat.

So I logged a ticket on asking them if they would help pair the numbers so that I can reattach the serial numbers to the correct GPU.

But it has been weeks and no help.

is there another way to get help from someone at Gigabyte?

well, just one small correction, 3 stickers were blown off one was still partly attached but I did not think it would be such an issue and did not mark that GPU. so after cleaning the gunk that has accumulated I now sit with 4 stickers and 4 GPUs. Why is there grease coming out of the GPU! And why did they put a sticker on an alimimum back plate that they clearly know is going to get hot!

As far as I can recall, you are the first to mention this.  I am not aware of any card manufacturer that use grease on their cards.  Thermal paste yes.  Paste has a high heat threshold, and it would have to be overapplied or get extremely *hot* for a sustained period to come out.  Several of my cards have stickers with serial numbers on their backplates, but none have ever come off. Some are over 5 yrs old.
