Get some Isopropyl Alcohol Electronics Cleaning Spray.

Then unplug your gfx card, spray alot of this into the gfx mb slot.
Also use this one spots where you suspect liquids has splattered on.

Leave the computer to dry in a well ventilated area, and redo this again if you wish too.

Use a Q-Tip also in conjunction with the spray to clean the card if there is residue.

Also keep in mind, ground yourself with the chassis of the computer by just touching bare metal. Do this once a while, if you have no grounding bracelet.

I hope this helps

I must say, I think there must have been a problem before you started using it at all?

I have had water dripped many places inside my case, and stains have been left that took some work to clean off with q-tips and alcohol(stickers with serial numbers on them for example, still have stains that I can't remove)

Even when the computer has been on apparently, both the sound card and graphics card has taken some liquid leaks from the Cpu compression fittings.

But this has been distilled water, and hadn't been in the loop long. So it probably hadn't had the chance to be very conductive till then.

Perhaps circuit boards are afraid of me, if they ever were to fail on me?

EDIT : Have you tried to put the failed gpu card back in again after the boot up? I don't think it would hurt to just try

Take your time putting it together. Wcg is worth doing. Just power up the pump to leak test with out the rest of the system on.

I got a little water on my gtx460 and it didn't hurt the card any. Just make sure to use distilled water.

Distilled water is the most important thing to use, for several reasons. I think that it increases hardware survival immensely when the loop has just been filled.

Distilled water is not as conductive as tap when the system has just been filled, but when particles are introduced to the liquid, it looses this advantage.

I think battery water might be better than just distilled water.

Battery water is used in car batteries and such, and its not just distilled, but also demineralized.

I have spilt water on both my sound card, and video card, as previously mentioned, and they still work fine

I felt it necessary to clean them though, since it would be most likely the spill would get conductive sooner or later.

Yes, I use battery water. Why? Since it is not that expensive here, and distilled water is not that readily available here.
