can someone tell me if i burned my graphic card. wat happend is i upgraded my cpu to a q6600 and i have watercooling in my system so i took it off and put the cpu in. so i turned my computer on for a 2minutes without the watercooling (computer case open) because i though using the computer for 5min nothing would happen next i start smelling something burning i quickly turned my computer off and i notice a burn smell coming from my graphic card, which was very hot i took the gpu block off and put the standard fan on so i turn my computer on and there is no screen so im assuming i burned my card anyway to tell?
yes my graphic card works all i did is take the psu connector out for about 30mins and it started working. i think all i had to do is remove the cmos battery i should of tried that instead of having a panic attack lol. lesson learned. =]
