Is this conductive?

I had actually sold the GPU and the guy used it for a month or so and it died on him. I set up the RMA, he mailed it to Powercolor under my name--they sent me the replacement and I sent it back to him finally. I don't really feel at all guilty for doing this and Powercolor did the RMA easily and quickly.

Glad to hear that

I just figured that it is conductive because it has silver in it. Clean it up good and try to rma it, hopefully they won't go CSI in it.

How new is this build, like has the whole system been checked for stability or did you just build it very recently? If it is brand new you might consider testing the rest of the system first.

Use an old tooth brush and Arctic Cleaner kit if you have it around. Once that's done, increase auxiliary voltage +50 mv and see if it sorts out okay.
