Default XFX 5770 calcium deposits??

I have started to have trouble with an older 5770 from xfx freezing at an ever increasing frequency. I removed the card several months ago and noticed a white residue on the board which I tried to wipe off with no luck. About a week ago I removed the card again and it seemed as though the white deposits had grown in quantity.

I made a ticket with the XFX support team and after a few days they told gave me this response...

" that is calcium buildup from leftover water cutting when we made that board."

Does this make any sense? Could that be calcium deposits? I did a quick google search and came up empty handed for calcium buildup on GPU's.
