Need help!

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Alright need some input on my situation....

Here is my card: EVGA 012-P3-1570-AR GeForce GTX 570 (Fermi) 1280MB 320-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

Here is my VGA waterblock: aquagraFX for GTX 580 and GTX 570 (GF110) G1/4


Alright, now to the problem. I suddenly started playing WoW (with my brand new computer) and it was working fine a couple days ago, but suddenly last night I tried opening it and it shut down my computer, then after it restarted I tried again... Same thing. Now the problematic part, this time after it restarted it would no longer recognize my graphics card was even there, but it show as a normal vga card. Then the even more crazy part started.. I was getting green dots and greens lines randomly throughout the screen, so I shut the computer off. I went it to remount the video card and I saw it had a little bit of water on it, so I dried it off and restarted the computer again, the green dots and lines are still going crazy even on startup. Is this something I should RMA a card for, or what should I do? Or is it just a driver? I'm so confused because my card was working fine for the past few days.

Yea, I just talked to the people at sidewinder computers and they are RMA'ing my card and leak testing it for me. Is it the water that did all the craziness to it then?

Only reason I ask is because I am using the Feser One Ultra purified water, so I didn't think a little leak would be capable of doing so much.

Even distilled or purified water will cause havoc, even if its just a tiny bit of a leak.

It does not matter the amount of water it is still conductive, just because its a little does not mean its less conductive. If the water lands in the right spot if can fry anything it wants. Just because its Distilled does not mean it will not conduct electricity.
