    My case is very open and has an excelent heatsink. But it sits on the floor on the side of my desk. So when i beatbox i get some spit go inside my case straight on the gpu. The problem is that can I damage my gpu? If i damage my gpu what can be some symptoms? Isn't saliva like liquid?

    I am going to answer this assuming that you aren't trolling, that said this is a very strange question.

    I would not advise letting any conductive liquid make contact with any part inside your PC. Sooner or later you are going to short circuit something. Symptoms could range from graphical glitches to your card being completly broken, do not spit on your PC!!

    In a word: Yes.

    Not only is saliva primarily water, but it also has several enzymes in it that help break down food, and would probably be corrosive to electronics more so than just plain water. So if there's a chance of sweat, saliva, or pretty much any other bodily fluid getting inside your computer, then reconsider the situation.
