Vrm got wet

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I was filling my GPU loop last night and had a small over flow. It didn't seem bad so I fired up the computer, I ran valley,3d mark and all was fine. My stress test passed 100%.

Than I started getting some ramdom crashing..... So I pulled both cards and pulled them apart, and noticed the front set of VRM had a small amount of coolant on them. Could I of ruined both cards?

It is a possibility for sure but leave them open let them dry out, try leaving them in the sun for a bit, then put them back together and pray. because that is pretty much your only option. :/

Sun light on a PCB? You sure?

Use 99% isopropyl alcohol to clean up remains of the liquid, you can run over and connections as well. I wouldn't leave it in the sun as that's not a way to fix this issue.

I cant see the coolant being any different from other liquids to an extreme extent, and every piece of tech ive ever dealt with that was wet getting it dried out completely was the most important thing and light amounts of sun and airflow has always been the best option due to the components, its not really bad for the board, now i wouldnt cook it all day in insane heat like the desert sun or like florida but a short while wouldnt hurt anything.
