From your post it kinda looks like you are enjoying their company... I have yet to found any life form in my pc and 932 got huge holes and no filters whatsoever.

from where I'm from you can't really stop them completely esp from where it is. this pc is at the living room and on the floor. it's warm so I guess insects love it

I actually had a gtx 6870 > a gtx 560 Ti then a gtx 470 on my htpc. trust me the gtx 470 is the best performer out of the 3 cards. esp when overclocked to 800/1600/2000. I was perfectly happy with the performance. so sad this had to happen.

oh well. it's getting late guys. keep them buggers away from your computers thumb.gif

I am sorry for your loss. I shouldn't even have to ask, but does blood conduct electricity? Technically it could have gotten some of your friends blood, then it would have flown directly onto your card just to short it out.

Come to America, you could probably sue someone for this. smile.gif

you are wrong 560ti is better than 6870 and that is better than 470 GTX. at least 6870 OCed is better, but stock doesnt

Blood typically has Iron in it, or at least it should. Small amount but its useful to the body. Ever smash up frosted flakes? you actually can get some iron filling out of a bowl of frosted flakes. It should have some level of thermal conductivity.

im not lying smile.gif

only screenshot I could find of my gtx 560 Ti
292

my two 6870's that were once in my sig rig then one went to my htpc
450

you can find a couple of threads here in OCN. gtx 470 is no slouch esp when overclocked. it beats my 560 Ti even when both are overclocked

dang man that really is a bummer thumbsdownsmileyanim.gif but an amazing reason to get a new card hehe.

I was talking to a guy a few months ago on a different thread and he said his computer suddenly started smoking. turns out one of his fans smashed a cockroach and guts flew everywhere and got hot enough to smoke. didn't kill anything in his computer (except the cockroach haha) but he had gooey stuff everywhere.

a few lyrics from the song: "Blood is an energy conductor, I am full of that all I need is an outlet."

this is what came to my mind.

So going after our blood is apparently not enough any more. Now they are after our hardware as well...

Thanks for the heads up.
