Random Hard Restarts after redoing loop and having sort of liquid explosion

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Just wondering has anyone ever had random hard restarts after redoing a loop or having a leak.

I re did my entire loop and took apart my entire computer and now I am getting random restarts. While putting it together I had an explosion out of my reservoir. It didn't look like my components got damaged and while in windows all temps are fine and everything works perfectly.

But now sometimes after 5min or an hour my computer shuts down like I flipped the power supply switch and then restarts itself. It is at completely random times.

Does this point to anything specific. Could I have gotten my hard drive wet.

I had taken a back panel off my motherboard tray that I thought was part of the tech station but I thought it made the back of the motherboard too exposed and that maybe something was shorting the mother board. I reinstalled the panel and changed the sata cable that was right near the explosion. Right now it has been running for about 20min ok.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I'm thinking of buying another ssd just to test the system and return it if it's not the problem.

It could have to do with you having the motherboard plugged in during the explosion. What codes are you getting on your computer? You should look at the event viewer and then go to administrative events and look at what happens before the computer randomly restarts.

Ya my motherboard was plugged in during it.

It's wierd because right now it's like nothing is wrong and my computer is perfectly fine. Right now the debug led is AA as usual. Then all of the sudden it will shut off like someone pushed the power supply button and it will turn off for a second and then restart itself. all the codes are normal while it restarts also. But its like a hard reset because that "start windows normally" message appears once restarted like it would if I just shut down the power supply. I don't think it's a temperature issue because all temps look like they always do.

Since I use my motherboard to fill my loop I am constantly shutting it down from the power supply can this hurt anything.

It's been about 2hrs. now with no shutdown after I re-installed the panel behind the motherboard.

If electricity ran through it when it was wet, then that would explain why. Doubt it's the motherboard coming into contact with metal shorting it out as then it probably wouldn't turn on at all. Anyhow, how I would fix:

Disconnect as much stuff as possible while still being able to use well enough to test, and test; if you suspect the hard drive(s) then run from a live cd instead.
If all is well with the bare minimum then isolate which disconnected component was at fault by adding things back one at a time.
If not, swap parts until you've isolated which one is at fault starting with ones that are cheap or easy to swap.

This is probably going to be very tedious seeing as it happens at random though ...

Thanks for the advice. For right now after adding back the panel to the back of my motherboard and changing the sata cable that I thought got wet my computer has been on for 18hrs straight with no restarts. I think this is the longest it has gone. Once I get to 24hrs I am assuming everything is ok.

Maybe something just need to dry out? I have no clue. Just glad its working for now.

Well that's good man. If it happens again go into even viewer and look at administrative events like I said before.

You didn't mention whether you did any drying-out procedures or how long you waited to boot up after the soaking, but that's usually a good idea FWIW. It sounds like you've got the problem solved, but you should run some stress tests just to be sure (prime95, some heavy gaming, etc).

Assuming you haven't had/don't have any more shutdowns, everything you've described is consistent with there having been an intermittent ground short somewhere, which you fixed. Sometimes the two parts making the short are only separated by a tiny space and the connection between them only closes due to small random vibrations.
