    hey guys,

    it looks my auxentech prelude dieded on me.

    after 30 min. of playing bc2 it stops.

    after a wail i got only a lot of noise.

    could heating up be a problem?

    Did you reboot and see if it works now? There seems to be driver problems for some people that causes noise like that, but it's random and temporary. I have had it happen to me.

    What OS are you using?

    Why? You can buy distilled water at most any store, look for steam distilled, which most are. You can also get the non-conductive dye.

    Feser Is distilled water plain and simple. I use Innovatek Protect, not because I want to, but because Aqua Computers recommends It for warranty purpose.
    I cut Protect by a third with distilled water; has It leaked In my case, yup, did It ruin anything, nope. Paying 9-30 dollars for distilled water Is a scam when you can go to the store and get It for anywhere from 2-4 dollars.

    matter of opinion, doing wc for almost 8 or 9 years. in the beginning yeah sure.
    plain tap water, distilled, anti-frees, engine coolant.

    but after a wail you get algy, corrosion, dirt. you name it a saw it all floating true my system. corroded waterblocks, clogged pumps.
    saw that, done that, bin there.

    give me the real stuf then for $10 and i have my peace of mind, spending hundred of $$ and cutting on the liquid? bad saving. (imho)

    btw: fesser has ultra clean for $ 3,- if you want to go cheap
