3) Could you post pictures? posting just 1 isn't going to cut it.
4) If it leaked, and you continued using your computer without completely cleaning it up, it is your fault at that point that your video card fried.
5) Way too many people jumping on the "that sucks, Corsair will replace it" bandwagon, without first asking for more information.
Edit: I hope that Corsair can help you out, a mid range card (6850 or6870) and a new cooler would be nice of them, a MB if it is fried.
Alright. FBI Interrogation is it? ;]
1. It WAS not working at all. I've replaced the parts with lesser ones. Replaced 5850 with GTX550 Ti, and the H50 with a Hyper212 - These are my friends parts that will be used in his next build next week, he said I could use them. My motherboards PCI-E slot is non-functional, the Videocard is in the second slot.
2. You assume I bought my PC through college. I bought my system in august of 2010. I sold my old system for $1300 and built this one for school. I'm taking AUDIO ENGINEERING as a secondary course, which warrants the sound card. Networking Security / Administration is my main course.
3. I'm waiting for my girlfriend to get home. She's gone away for a week and she has a much better camera then my iPhone 3GS, it has terrible low-light quality and blacks show up terribly.
4. The damage was already done before I ever "continued to use my PC". You assume the water didn't damage my card directly the moment it touched it? My screen turned grey and orange and my PC crashed, which is a GPU issue - not CPU. Therefor the damage was instant and running my PC afterwards makes no difference. Also, I didn't realize there was a leak until I actually went to take it off. I checked the inside of my case but the water was no apparent even when shining a flashlight.
5. But, that's your job Agent DarkStarCow. I am happy you asked these questions so maybe it clears up a few things.
