well yesterday was a fun day, was playing fallout the new vegas, when apparently my swiftech pump stopped working. i didnt notice anything was wrong untill my monitor turned off.

i immediatly turned and looked at my video card, the green light was red....... stuck my hand in the case and touched the backplate, ouch.... sizzling hot. needless to say i replaced the pump with a corsair pump i had layin around but the card makes a really hi pitched squealing sound now, almost sounds like a slaughtered pig.

i'm gonna have a closer look today to look for busted caps or anything unussual, as far as i know its a paperweight now, any advice to try and salvage this thing. i bought the pump brand new too, the other pump for my cpu is a used mcp 355 probly twice the hours, is this thing gonna fuckin puke on me too?

high pitched squeeling is probably the v-regs.. they most likely overheated and are frazzled... sometimes it happenes anyway and they can vibrate/squeek? but also I've had times where if they aren't getting enough power and/or not working properly they will also squeel :/

RMA time?

Sometimes its a faint, or slightly load high pitch squeal,

Its a capacitor whine.

The other load as fuck noise, is litteraly scary, because its a continues screaming beep, when you don't have your pci-e power in!

Probably a cap squeel, got really uneasy being over heated so O:

ok, just took off the water block and checked it over it looks just fine physically.



so i figured wtf plug her in and see if she screams. got a green light and post with no squeal. didnt reassemble my loop, just posted it with the water block on it, so i didnt have time to put it under load and make sure it's ok artifact free, etc.

guess i got lucky, gonna wait for my new pump to arrive before, i put the loop back together.
