OH SNAP! H2O Meltdown....

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Yeah... they melted....

So today I was working on some e-mails from work when my PC just shutdown...
I smelled something kinda nasty...
with my heart beating out of my chest I looked down to find the tubes around my CPU block to be a little bit white in color. A little like some of the systems that never get flushed out.
The tubes were scolding hot to the touch, and literally about to melt.
Turns out the pump stopped working (the 4pin connection got loose somehow? stopped working? wth)
Anyway my pc was standing upright and i use Indigo Extreme.

My question is, should I replace tubing right away since there is some discoloration in them? Also how does a 4pin just stop working? could have been fatal.

Also, what would give off that smell? the tubing?

I would post pics, but honestly the tubes did not change shape in anyway, just color right around the CPU block....

Am i screwed?

I had nearly the same thing happen except my pump ate itself. Your system will auto shutdown when temps reach dangerous levels. If no water leaked I would say you are fine. Mine still worked. Just replace the tubing and truck on.
