RX 5700 Fire Started In Welding Accident!

But here is where it takes a strange twist. It was not an actual “mining accident”, as we might expect.

A welding accident apparently started the fire at this warehouse, where he was building his mining rigs.

Some 500 of his Radeon RX 5700 graphics cards – all brand new, in boxes – were destroyed in the fire, and firefighting operation.

Fortunately for him, his mining rigs survived, and just needed to dry out from the water.

Another crypto-miner estimated that the 500 destroyed Radeon RX 5700 cards would cost about US$300,000.

But you would be hard-pressed to find 500 of these cards on Amazon!
