You repost this, don't do that plz, it is pointless.

I am new to the forums and did not see the cooling specific forum until after I posted. I did note on the re-post that it was a re-post (in the correct forum) and that I was sorry.

You also may want to go to a PC repair shop and see what they can do. They would know best. See what you can do, as not everything may be fried, you may get luck, any parts you can remove(RAM etc.), remove and put in a big bowl of rice to dry out immediately. I am assuming your problem was jsut now, so let things dry out for a day or two before powering back on. Remove all power from the system by unplugging and holding the power button for 10 seconds I believe. If you have a desktop, turn off the PSU in the case by a switch on it that only has on and off. Wait a few days, let it dry out. Maybe add a fan too, a box fan or something like it pointing at a completely open case with as many panels off as possible with help.

I do have some spares but not enough for a full system. When this happened (2 days ago) I unplugged the system and placed the memory and motherboard in a big ziplock with rice and and hoping that that will suck out as much of the coolant as possible. The coolant was from a closed loop system so I am not sure what it is but it does seem to be a little sticky when dried. I am wondering if anyone else has had this problem and what their outcomes were, I don;t really want to risk placing parts in the system if they are just going to fry out. My assumption is that the mainboard and ram are very suspect and likley to cause shorts but other things like gpu/cpu/power supply etc that were not directly "wet" I am hoping would be savable.

A word of advice for folks out there with closed loop systems, my issue was caused by my coolmaster 240m tubes being pressed from the side panel after reattaching the side panel, be careful with placement of the tubes -- in my case I did not see that they had moved to the outside of the GPU and when the panel pressed it applied pressure to the connector points on the fan.

Sorry cross posted this I did not see the cooling sub until just now..

Has anyone here ever had a closed loop system fail? If so hat chances do I have that my system will not be a total loss, I had my water break on my motherboard and ram (it seems to have missed the CPU socket) but the system was running and fized out -- I am sure some parts are fried but not sure how much of the system should be considered a loss.

Thanks!

Also thanks for running the CyberPower Trinity Xtreme PC contest, I need a replacment and my fingers are crossed!crying
