Gtx 285 rip! :/

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 
hey..

had a dumb story. switched my gtx 285 from water to air again.
had the accelero extreme pro ..i just had to buy new passive coolers .. ok no problem. bought from akasa when i was in a shop and saw it accidently.
ok now i put everything back and the card to my second rig. everything fine some days until.. a passive cooler fell of the card because it´s glue was cheaper quali than a 1$ cheeseburgerketchup at mcdumb! arff! it made contact with tha cards powering lines and the card itsself ---> PSU high alai BZZT BZZT discotimes!-->DEAD!..same as the gtx
now when i try to turn it on.. psu drops off as i connect the right power conn on the 285.. definetily dead. now a 460 is inside and will hopefully end better :/
