read this from the manufacturer, arctic silver five is NOT conductive.
4th paragraph down it clearly says not conductive, I have used it and I can tell
you it's not conductive, something else went wrong with your gpu.
it is capacitive however. but if it shorted out a circuit I don't think it would even
boot up, so it has to be just the gpu is at it's end if in fact it was running hot.

It has silver in it & can be capacitive, still not a good idea to use too much so that it can be on the SMD components around the gpu. Shading a resistor with a pencil can change it's value, silver impregnated goop can probably have some effect too.

yes you are correct. also the pencil thing I found a article for my Sabertooth X58 about using the pencil on resistor next to the memory to get more voltage then you could set in the bios for the memory chips.
but yes if the AS5 ran onto any electrical tracers on the gpu board it could in fact fry it, but ASUS says a good cleaning might save it when that happens, from my experience I have most artifacting of the gpu is caused from the gpu failing and not from a voltage short on the board.

I usually find the same, I have had 1 card get a voltage short & it was instant, card was on, then just off never to start again. With the as5 I don't think it would be a short, but more of an issue with changing the way the components close to that gpu work if they did in fact have the as5 directly on them, causing the gpu to fail quickly rather than instant death.
Shutting it down & cleaning it off right after seeing the first artifact or temp difference (something looking odd) probably could have saved it.

If youre just having capacitive disturbances due to the AS5, just remove it and apply something thats not metal-based like ceramic or something.

If you can boot its not completely fried.

Soo.... I tried taking off the heatsink again and it turns it was just to tightly screwed onto the card i used a credit card to move the thermal paste back onto the core (as it had been squeezed to the side) and its working the two 1680x1050 displays perfectly again! I'm still going to upgrade the card to something less stone age but I'm glad she doesn't have to use the onboard graphics (which wouldn't display the full resolution of the screens only 1280x800, which made the display look kinda crappy tongue.gif)


Thanks everyone for your help! biggrin.gif
