hello. my gtx 970 smoked a while ago and stopped working so i took it off and didnt use it. its been like 1 month and a few weeks since that happened. today i got free time and opened the card to find that those black squares (total of 12) above the gpu die one of them caused the white smoke. one of these squares has burn marks and it left one over the thermal pad. just wanted to ask what are those squares and can this be fixed?
