I'm more or less curious as to what would cause widespread defects like this. LMK if you are interested. I would post updates here as well for everyone.
I am willing to donate the baord for the sake of science and research. Plus these is a killing to make in repairing used and defective boards. I am going to look into learning how to service and repairs things of this nature as well.
