SPdDeMn Posted December 19, 2005 Posted December 19, 2005 Hello everyone. I just thought I should post a note about my last thread in which I complained about a defective bios on my mobo. The 2 vid cards I have listed below I modified with a liquid cooling solution. It turns out the one on the top (naturally) developed a slow leak over the course of the last 2 weeks or so and had leaked just enough to get into the PCI E slot below it. I periodically checked for leaks but never saw this one until it was too late. This is after I ran the cooling system out of the case for a least 24 hours before I put it in to insure that wouldn't happen but it did. It mimicked a bios problem so closely that I was sure that was the problem. It must have been just damp enough to cause it to lock up before finally one big drip must have hit it and totally fried my brand new Vcard and probably the PCI slot on the board as well. So I may be out close to $1000. I need some serious Prozac. With the leak gone and just one surviving card the "bios" issue amazingly disappeared. So I apolgise for any bad thing I might have said about the mobo as it was in no way to blame. When I replace the main board like I think I'm going to have to if I want SLi again. I will definately get another DFI. Better luck to all! Quote Share this post Link to post Share on other sites More sharing options...
