Nope. I have heavy artifacts on everything. The temperature show -128 (?!)

I'm going to flash the BOIS, stick the old HS on it and see what happens.

I think I'd rather watch the girl crawl out of the well then crawl out of my TV and eat me than go though this again! LOL

My poor wrenched, miserable friend, surely God has some great thing in mind for you and is testing the purity of your spirit!

How did it break...this time.... ":O}

I think I found the problem.

There's limescale or somthing on my sound card. Looks like that Maze4 has sprung a leak.

I think I might have a good chance of RMA'ing this since I've only had it for 2 months. I certainly cannot afford to replace it with anything half decent.

I've got an old ATI card, I think it is a 9600, if you need one to tide you over let me know and you can have it. A mate gave it to me when I upgraded his box.

Well, TBH I plan to RMA the SOB. However It seems overclockers.co.uk don't have any. Great.

This just adds to my day.

I should survive for now. Got to talk to OcUK and see what they say.

Beautiful. Fantastic. I'm estatic. I've just thrown my water cooling system in the bin, I won't be going back to using it.

I have a theory as to what happened:

Water leaked creating an air bubble.

The bubble reached the pump stopping the flow of water.

Card over heated and the rest is history.

Two birds with one stone. Damn that Maze 4 is clever.
