    I remember reading online about a guy who had just bought one new then took to his job at a police department only for the machine to black smoke and catch fire because of those faulty mosfets. Those with healthy or nos boards can band aid the issue with a cooling mod to the mosfets but that will never fix the issue short of replacing them by hand with higher quality mosfets. Just don't let it burn that 980m and good luck.
