Most Likely Dead 3930k?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Everything I know about computers tells me that my CPU is dead.

It seems like when transporting my desktop from my room to my car, it had a very small leakage and a few drops got on the chipset and GPU's (I looked everywhere else as well). Luckily I noticed this before setting up and cleaned off as much water as I could see. I then proceeded to leak test with the 24pin tool to make sure where the leak was coming from, nothing.

Blew it out with a Datavac and prayed. Mobo lights, SLI bridge light, and pump/fans/debug (Would only show 00) came on just fine, but I was greeted with the red CPU LED near the 24pin connector.

Checked all PSU connections, reset cables, removed CMOS battery, gave it 20 minutes of being off (That sometimes works!); LED still on.

I have yet to tear down the loop due to work early in the morning and check the CPU/socket for any marks of water or burning.

Any other thoughts before I cave in and start fresh?

First, what kind of liquid were you using ?
Second, did you try to clear CMOS ?
Third, if clearing cmos fails, does you motherboard have additional bios?

look, a year ago i moved from Seattle to Florida and UPS people f..ck up my pc, i received my computer DRIPPING WET inside, mostly all my screws and tiny bolts were RUSTED, all my loop were EMPTY, so it was 100% external water tha got into the box and wrapping, but anyways, they payed the insurance (2k $) and wanted my pc back to them so i said hell no, i took EVERYTHING apart and sumerged everything in 99% isopropyl alcohol and cleaned all with a tooth brush and let all dry for a day and also using my wife's hair dryer in medium hot, and the miracle occurred, it turned on, i had to fin new screws and bolts but my computer were ok.

long story short, i dont think you cpu is bad.

Try an another mobo (a friends or someone reliable)
Or try to remove and reinsert the cpu on the socket.
