What brand is it?

Technically if you let it dry all the way it should still work.But it looks like it didn't and you may have damaged it.Was the card working before you washed it?

You wash it in the washing machine.. no way. Of course they don't let you do RMA.

Umm.. I guess you should buy A new GPU then. What is that GPU and what is your budget?

You can't use a dishwasher, that's to violent.You can however manually clean it.

You dance.

Seriously, why aren't you answering our questions? We asked you, HOW DO YOU WASH IT? (Sorry for using caps, but I have to do so because OP will know what our questions are). Maybe If we know how do you wash it we can give you a solution.

Yah most of the time the sticky adhesive that holds the warranty stickers to the card will come off when it comes in contact with water.

How do you know the card works even if the fan doesn't? If the card truely works then you can just buy a replacement heatsink/fan.

This should work.Although buying directly from Arctic's website will be expensive so I suggest looking around for a 3rd party dealer.

Yah I totally forgot about that.The GT430 is a very cheap card.In fact a replacement heatsink would cost half of what the GT430 is worth.It's just better to get a brand new one.
