That rice idea is a pretty great one.
I do the same thing when I bake cookies/brownies to keep them moist(bread works better though).

My cousin did exactly the same thing when he was draining his WC loop -_- you're supposed to keep components covered with paper towels/cloth/whatever to minimize the effects of a spillage.

yer i did but a small amount went through. only a very small amount of water touched the back of the PSU cables

i am going to order a T section so i can add a drain line. when i clean it in 6 months i will also remove the PSU lol

Ah, well stuff happens I guess ^_^

It's only been ~1 hour since you started the thread. After blow-drying it out I would let the thing sit in a warm and dry environment for atleast 24 hours before I dared switch it back on.
