The tubing went from the rad to CPU inlet then outlet to the Voltage regulator block. I see the barb on the outlet of the CPU has to be the cause. Maybe it was defective?? Because if you look at the pictures you can see the voltage reg barbs have some kind of greenish corrosion as well. The rest of the water block and barbs are fine.

This is beyond me. Obviously the reason for the tubing coming out was the corrosion and heat..Had I put clamps everywhere maybe it wouldn't happen but I wouldn't know about the corrosion until next time I disassembled everything. And refilling the water doesn't require for all of that so I am just lost at what happened.

I leak tested it for over 10 hours prior to turning the loop on. And had this going for 3 months now. Everything worked perfect.

I think it answers your question.

Did not have time to read all the post but I just thought I can share my experience as well.

I am using a car coolant mixed with distilled water for 3 years now. I had never had a corrosion problem. However, I had a similar water leak 2 months ago, the plastic adaptor/coupling that came with ASUS mobo fusion block breaks an the water spilled all over my PC while it is running. I have my 790i mobo, 2xGTX285, and a sound card installed and running during the water spill. The PSU is also wet. All of them survived.

If you are lucky, all your your parts will still be agood and usable. Keep your fingers cross.

There are so many people here that are against the use of car coolant but I am not. The reason why I am using the car coolant is to ensure that my loop will never gets corroasion, plus I think car coolant are non-conductive (I can be wrong here) but it worked for me. Cooling wise, I did not spot any difference compared to pure water.

I think he mentioned he used a kill coil AND anti-fungal? Why on earth do I see so many people using two different methods for killing BIO growth? What's the thinking there?

This to me personally is just another reason and example of a LONG list why you just run what makes sense -> a small mix of anti-corrosive fluid with distilled water. Don't clean your loops with anything fancy other than at most a tiny bit of something harmless like dish soap and hot water.

This is just another example of Kill coil + another biocide being used together when you only need either/or that's come out with issues. Be safe... use a light mixture of anti-corrosive. Why not? Better safe than sorry and losing a ****load of equipment potentially.

So much stupid advice given in the WC forums. Hopefully your gear dries out and is fine!

Because alcohol only doesn't clear the flux in a radiator. Streaming water (even the tap one) for some time (like 30-40 minutes) does, as does shaking several times with warm water inside.

You were right to rinse it with distilled water, though.

Dry the Cards, water is not much of a problem, unless the computer was on at the time, let it dry for a day or 2..

Your tubing popped off because it's way past time to clean and fix whatever is corroding your loop. That wouldnt happen to be the EK nickel plated stuff that everyone is having problems with is it?

I've had ALOT of electronics get wet... If you were there to kill power almost immediately, I bet you're ok. Compression clamps on all of those barbed inlet/outlets should solve it. Use distilled water/antifreeze... NO fungi is growing in antifreeze and it stops pretty much all corrosion in much worse conditions than a water cooled PC for years.

This has me thinking because I am using distilled water and kill coil.
