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.
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.
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.
