so here is my sad story. one day i was playing bad company 2 like i always do. on my fully watercooled computer i built from the ground up. i have 2 gtx 470s in sli and everything was running nice. next thing i know i start seeing funny things on my screen. i looked in my case and saw a nice trickle of coolant across my first gtx 470! so i powered the system down. after taking the graphics card out and removing the water block and thoroughly cleaning the "non conductive" coolant out of the card, i put it all back together. it still works. sort of. it makes a high pitched ringing sound that sometimes goes away. it runs everything fine with the exception of occasionally crashing and the graphics drivers not responding. but it almost always comes back. i realize that this card is damaged. but i think if i switch it from slot the first slot in my mobo to the second. (so its not the primary card in the sli configuration) maybe the issues will go away. thoughts?
