Nothing is torqued down lol, it's been running fine for 9 months. This is a component failure.

oh man... That is hard to look at and I'm sorry. frown.gif At least it is a Corsair unit so you should be able to get compensation for anything that you cannot recover in working condition. Start drying things off and let them sit for several days, I've seen some things work that I thought for sure would be toast!

All the compenents with the exception of the case and the 2 x SSD's have gone back to the supplier who I am confident will replace all.

What surprised me was how much water made it through to the PSU
