Item #: SCP 3476

Object Class: Keter

Description: SCP 3476 resembles a high-end consumer video processing card, made by a company known as NVIDIA. It has a body made out of an undiscovered metal; a very shiny and almost florescent silver sheen resembling polished titanium or silver. The blades on it's fan is also made out of this strange metal. Extensive testing reveals that the metal is in fact an alloy, however it's elemental components do not have a definite origin nor a precise molecular structure.

SCP 3476, in addition, has an LED display, which is light green in color, spelling out "GEFORCE GTX" on the left side of the object with the fan facing up. This display is particularly interesting, as when slotted into any power source, the LED display turns off. When left without a power source of a PCI-E slot to be slotted into, the LED turns on. A normal video card would have the opposite effect.

Origins: A consumer bought the card in California, at a local Best Buy in hopes of mining cryptocurrency, but when Michael █████ slotted the card into his motherboard, his house was blasted off it's foundation, however Michael was unharmed for unknown reasons.

Containment Procedures, Precautions, and Dangers: This object must be sealed in a titanium box (2mx4mx6m), with many different layers outside; an explosive-proof gel surrounding the box to protect against any types of blast damage (10ft thick). Then a more softer, flexible metal to contain the gel and absorb any shock waves left over from mechanical damage to the titanium and gel. The room has to be absolutely static-free, or spontaneous combustion will occur.

Researchers must be immensely cautious when coming to examine or test the object. They must wear an anti-toxicity mask and suit, as the object emits a high level of airborne toxicity for unknown reasons. The toxin in question is not visible, nor detectable by a radiation detector. Researchers must use an advanced robotic arm to handle the object.

When the object is exposed to any sort of power, an alarm is sounded throughout the containment facility. Researchers do not know the pattern of combustion when the object is slotted into a motherboard. At times, the object will not combust, but in extreme cases, The object will completely vaporize the gel, and the researchers outside of the soft, absorbing metal due to the massive shock wave. Researchers think the type of motherboard matters in the event of combustion of the object. A combustion reaction occurs, however the object remains intact because of the mysterious alloy protecting the inside of the object.

Researchers have tried to unscrew the back plate of the object with a hydraulic screwdriver, but as the last thread leaves the object, the screw teleports back into the tap. This applies to all screws except the back IO plate, Which will spew 2m long blue flames from the HDMI and DVI ports without oxidation or corrosion of any kind. The screw will also teleport back into place.

When the object is exposed to water, it will start sparking vigorously, even damaging the titanium wall. This reaction is only observed with water volumes of 1 liter or over. Tests with gallons of water have not been tested.
