White stuff on pcb

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I've been lurking these forums a lot lately and I saw the couple of threads about the filmy stuff the back of XFX cards, so today when I was redoing my cable management I decided to take a good look at my cards.

Second one:


I'm sorry for the poor quality pics, taken with my free phone.

Here's the kicker:





Both cards bought at the same time from same website and arrived on the same day.

I could be totally wrong but i think it is just dust. I get it on my 2 4870x2's and my x-fi xtreme gamer sound card. I think it just builds up over time.

Left over solder flux that is on pretty much every PCB to one degree or another. Won't hurt anything, but does look a bit sloppy.

Some companies wash their PCBs better than others.
