    Well apparently my loop wasn't really sealed. It was good for a few days, but must have leaked last night.

    Can watercooling system can be filled with something that conducts heat and not conducts electricity?

    Yes. Most people buy the Feser Clear Coolant as its Non-Conductive for Electricity.

    Thanks man. I'm thinking to go back to air for that i7. Its very risky with such expensive hardware. Best part is that the 5850 died a few days before I have to give my Subaru to the garage, which will cost as much as ten 5850s. So I'd be able to get a new one next month the soonest.

    I'm going to be running a test on Non-Conductive Coolants next month mate. i'll post my findings on here too. My Test subject is going to be my ever faithful HIS2600 to see if I fry it or not with these. Might help you out if you want to stay with water.

    Grab some 70% alcohol, q-tips, and patience. Clean up the oxification and RMA it.

    Oh yeah! I had to RMA a X800GTO that was leaked on. Cleaned it, sent it, and 2 weeks later had a replacement. The green will clean off very easily with the concoction I listed above.

    Try. You're still within the warranty period.

    If some of the green is coming out then go and grab some Goo Gone, or equivalent. Goo Gone is AWESOME!!:rockout:

    I agree - try to clean it up, put stock cooler back on and attempt an RMA

    Sorry for your loss man.

    I killed an x1950pro putting on a Zalman vf900. Was completely my fault and turned me off custom cooling GPUs ever since.
