I don't see how a lot of dust ends up in the actual loop? I mean it's a closed system except when you open it up. The only time mine was open was when I was getting the air out and left the res cap open to let the air bubbles escape.
So any dust that would be in it would have had to fall directly in to the hole then. I don't think a few dust particles would be able to make water conductive. I mean obviously if you got enough crap in it. Also dust is made up mostly of dead skin cells.... I don't think dead skin cells are going to conduct electricity very well.

I have a good feeling the equipment is okay it did post again after shuttdown when I realized after I saw liquid!!
Still going at it :-/
Put anything you can in a bag with plain old white rice. It's amazing at sucking up water. what you don't want to do right now is start powering stuff on that might have water in it dude.... I know it sucks and you want to test stuff out but you really need to give stuff 2-3 days in bags full of rice.
I had a friend drop a phone in the sink or something at my house and he refused to listen to me about not powering it back on, needless to say it never worked again when if he had just let it chill in rice it *might* have worked in a few days.Edited by HardwareDecoder - 12/23/13 at 10:13pm
