Crap i wet my PSU

post #1 of 38
Thread Starter 
Title says it all i was taking my loop apart because apparently i had it backwards it went from GPU to CPU so i switched it to CPU to GPU as i was draining the loop water spilled over and possibly inside the PSU now it was not a HUGE amount but it was enough to wet some of the components i fear. now im going to let it sit under my fan for a few hours what are ur guys opinions on it. btw no water got on any other of my components just the PSU

put some sort of desiccant next to it, like rice and put it in a airtight bag

Make sure the PSU is fully discharged and safe. I would personally break out the 95% isopropyl alcohol and just drown it. But be cautious. Alcohol can really tamper with some stuff and might mess it up. Like plastic,rubber,stickers.

As long as it was turned off, if you give it plenty of time to dry (like 48 hours) you should be fine...

If it helps, i just lost a video card =\\

ok i just took the top off the PSU it appears only the back of the PSU got wet the part were you plug the modular cables into to. but to be on safe side do u think i should give the PSU a hit with the air compressor since i did pull the top off and its very very dusty

Better to be safe, than sorry. If there is any water left in a PSU's vital part that hasn't evaporated, and you turn it on. The longer you wait, the better chance of it being 100% dry, and powering right away with no issues.
