oh yeah those screw holes are just to hold the faceplate on, its not the reason why this happened.
Thankfully all my computer hardware came out okay, slapped a new cooler on my 2600k and it fired right back up to 5ghz.
The bad thing was my computer tower is on a rack with my stereo receiver right below it, and once the res blew open all the water went right down into it, so I had to buy a replacement.
All in all, it was about a $500 accident. I nearly just said w/e and build up a new system, but a 5ghz i7 still isn't a bad gpu, and I don't game as much as I used to, so its not too beneficial to upgrade for me just yet.Edited by Jixr - 10/5/15 at 7:07am
