Shawnb99 To continue my run while trying to clean the excess liquid metal I managed to bend a few pins on the MB so if it wasn’t dead before it sure is now.

Shawnb99 So with EVGA retuning my GPU saying it works means my MB has an issue. That or my PSU. Only other thing it could be I was using a EVGA Power Link on it so maybe that was bad.

Guess I’ll find out next week.

Lol nice! I’m not going to go that far, just a nice dunking in some rubbing alcohol. There’s maybe a few drops I missed. Damn liquid metal ends up everywhere, I found some of my clothes, floor, stairs and everything. Such a mess it can make.

Shawnb99 Small update, bad luck continues.

Started getting Error 43’s on my GPU, couldn’t install drivers or get to work so I RMA it only for EVGA to return it claiming it works perfectly.

While setting up my CPU for direct die cooling I spilled some liquid metal on my MB, cleaned it as best I could but rather then take chances I went and ordered a Asus Maximus XI Plex. Should be a better overclocker but I lose some functionality.
I’ll give the old board a bath of alcohol later and see if I can clean it all off but with my luck if j used it I’d get a short and lose it all.

So in short the last 2 weeks have been the worst yet. I’ll try the GPU with the new board and if it doesn’t work I’m giving up completely and will be selling it all.

It happy with EVGA, no info at all as to why my card was returned on their site I had to call to find out what was wrong with it. RMA shows as completed as well, when it should of read rejected. Damn EVGA

Everyone has an bad fitting or you screw it too tight so that you cant even dissemble it. Doesn't matter the brand, even something reliable like cheapest barrows and the expensive bitspower.


Yeah I figured it might be a universal issue. Yeah you’re right about the primochill I had nothing but issues.

Shawnb99 It’s from trying to screw in the fitting with the tubing at an angle, it’s very easy to get it on the wrong thread, or the some of the threads aren’t totally smooth so it can catch and get stuck.
