Should I teardown this SAPPHIRE Radeon R9 290X 8GB Vapor-X?

I have four of the beautiful, super high-end SAPPHIRE Radeon R9 290X 8GB Vapor-X GPUs sitting next to me, and since I can only use 2-3 in a system at once because of their 2.5-slot nature, I thought I'd do something different with the fourth one.

Who wants to see me do a teardown of the GPU? I've never done it before, but I thought it would be good to look at a naked SAPPHIRE Radeon R9 290X 8GB Vapor-X GPU, one of the highest end video cards on the market. A true beauty, with an insane 4K-ready 8GB of VRAM and a beautiful, quiet cooler in the form of the Vapor-X unit SAPPHIRE has slapped on it.

Who wants to see me tear this bad boy down to its bare naked PCB?
