Does this video card need extra maintenance?

Specs: Windows XP, AMD Athlon x2 5200+ / 2GB Kingston DDR2-800
Since it's cooling system is different than most, is any additional maintenance required, any extra cares?

It would help to know which video card you're asking about.

Oh, I'm terribly sorry! I had filled in the "Product" text box and I though that was all that was necessary. Apparently it isn't.
The video card is the SAPPHIRE TECHNOLOGY RADEON HD4890 VAPOR-X - 1 GB DDR5

Again, sorry about the misunderstanding.

if it is a newer video card some require you plug in a addititional 12 volt connector to the card,read directions from card and this maybe the problem

Taken from a review of your card:

"It is important to note that this Vapor-X cooler doesn't require any extra maintenance, or fiddling with water or what-not, so don't worry about that. Besides the unseen vapors at work, it operates as a standard cooler."

Whoa, thanks a lot, jam.
I had gone trough several reviews and articles but they were all quite vague concerning the actual functioning of the cooler.

Again, thanks and best regards
