So i have a MSI GeForce GTX 1660 Video Card GTX 1660 VENTUS XS 6G OC. I've had it for about 6 months and recently its started to show Splotches of both light brown and a little green.

I live in a high humidity area so i know that high humidity can cause this. Is there a way to fix this? This gpu is under warranty till 2024 so. But i don't wanna go through the whole return process if its just something minor and can be ignored.

Clean it up with a little rubbing alcohol before the lacquer and it will stick better....but I think lacquer is a little overboard/
I think that if you didn't do anything to it....it would be fine.....for a very long time.

IDK the GPU is only about 6 months old and it's all ready doing this so I'm kinda concerned about the longevity of the pipe I plan on sticking with the gpu till at least the Warranty is over
