I think it is funny to see that almost every listing of a GPU on ETSY has "handmade" checked. Who knows maybe they forge the chip at home, and solder every component buy hand onto the PCB they crafted by layering epoxy and tin foil, finishing it off with 3D printing the cover... 
 
Do not buy this stuff it is a scam. Especially the RTX 3090 with 10Gb of ram for $400 dollars I saw one time on there ...
 
Thankfully I don't see them listed that often anymore...

    Robots have hands, so I don't see anything wrong with this.

    LOL.  If you fall for this, I have a Bit-Wat miner to sell you... five times faster than an E9 at lower power draw.

    Forget handmade GPUs, give me handmade CPUs.
    Seriously, check out "bga to lga" CPUs if you want a laugh (or if you want 6C12T for your Z170 or Z270 board).

    They are selling (scamming) on Etsy because it’s impossible to get your money back. I saw a listing via the googles shopping tab and did some research first, thinking it was really odd to be selling Gpu’s on Etsy.

    Etsy is the Pinterest of shopping sites. Including the string -site:etsy.com in your google searches is a huge plus.

    I wonder how many scalpers there are out there and just how much they've made from this mess.

    A custom painted/decorated 3090 from etsy sounds like it could be pretty cool. A handmade GPU from etsy sounds like a bad idea 🤔

    Guess you'd have to void the warranty to really make sure.

    A custom painted/decorated 3090 from etsy sounds like it could be pretty cool. A handmade GPU from etsy sounds like a bad idea 🤔

    Lol I wouldn't trust that someone didnt use some bad paint or dropped some on the card or something, expensive experiment haha.

    If you slap a decal on it somewhere that fits Amazon's definition of Handmade, not sure about Etsy.
