What harm does liquid metal do to the graphic card?
After checking, De8auer noticed that the RTX 2060 has liquid metal inside (probably the previous owner of this graphics card used liquid metal). The guy who put the liquid metal into the RTX 2060 was able to protect the capacitors around the main chip very well, but he didn’t know that the gallium-based liquid metal forms a new alloy when it comes into contact with aluminum.
As a result of forming an alloy, gallium causes cracking of aluminum and damages the structure of the graphics card. Der8auer says that this process of “broadcasting MarginalIt is called After aluminum is permanently damaged as a result of gallium penetration into the grain boundaries, doing things like polishing the damaged structure won’t help.
