Hey. A year ago I bought MSI RTX 2060 Gaming Z. After two months I saw strange sediment(?) on cooling. I don't know what is this. Should I be worried? It don't looks like corossion. I wiped it and it was coming off but not all. I don't have humid air in my room. Other components are fine. No signs of coroossion or sediment. My case has good air circulation (I have 6 fans, 3 on front, 2 up and 1 back). My gpu is working fine excluding coil whine which is very annoying in my model even in idle :(.



And photo after I touched it with my finger:

Is this something to worry about?

No, it doesnt. Only on GPU cooling. No any signs of corossion in my case. I think it could be fully cleaned with ipa but i dont have it to test. When i touched it with finger, there wasnt any sign of dirt on finger. I dont know what its this. I saw it 1 year ago and GPU is working fine. I think the material with cooler is made is the main problem. In contact with air it leaves those signs. Should I be worried? I still have 2 years warranty left and I will buy new nvidia card couple months after release. I want to sell this card but this signs makes me worried.

Maybe someone will know what exactly it is. My suggestion is to clean it and run a gpu stress test. As long as no problem pops up, I will keep using it.

I cleaned it before and always it appears again. I will leave it. I dont want to harm GPU. Everything is fine, i play demanding games and GPU is running fine, max 70 degrees celcius.

Well, there are no issues with the card´s functions so of course it is no defect. It`s just some irrelevant tarnish.
