Hi,

This might sound like a crazy question but can you scan a graphics card. When I say scan I literally mean hold it over a scanner and scan it. I'm trying to do this so I can make a sticker to go around my shroud.

I was wondering if the light from the scanner might do something to the card.

I doubt it will but I just want to be sure.

Thanks

A scanner machine just emits and receives light, it does not use x-rays or Microwaves so there won't be any risk of a short.

Besides, many enthusiasts use UV lighting with their watercooling setups, this too poses no harm to the parts.
