I had a pair of 280s at one point that had everything but the chassis metal
and power supplies replaced (e.g., the memory had been replaced, the CPUs
had been replaced, and the motherboard had been replaced), and they were
STILL unstable (the power supplies were tested good multiple times).

I'm convinced they were haunted.
