Watercooling leaked -_-

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Well last night.. my h20 220's pump/heatsink decide to crack.. and water leaked all over my system.. i immediately pulled my power plug.. water was on the motherboard, graphic card, power supply, and harddrive..

so i wiped my graphic card, went upstairs to my brothers computer... and test if my graphic card work.. i then switch back to his graphic card.. try to turn his computer on.. and it doesnt turn on.. so i gotta fix his -_-...
[anyone think its the power supply that fried..?]


anyhow.. every component in my system works.. thank god... right now im using a 4 pipe heatsink w/ fan.

i still have my warrenty on my h20 220 compact.. i might exchange for another one.. or pay extra for one that have pump separated from the heatsink.

You didn't dry it then try it again immediatly?

Generally if you let wet electronics air dry for a few days they will work...

thats a big problem. if u dont let it dry completely, the water acts as a conductor and it'll short the card and fry it completely. Usually if u let it dry for a few days then run it up it works cuz there's no coolant to short anything.

If you knew it was gonna leak, why take the chance of killing your hardware? Just doesn't make sense to me.....

get a hairdyer on the wet part. thats what i did when i got water on my GPU (wasn't plugged in at the time)

after leaving a hairdryer on it for about 30 minutes, i left it to dry for a day...worked fine.

you kinda deserve to fry something

-first you left a Dangorus component inside your box knowing it will most likly cause damage to one or more other parts.

-Second,your not patient enough to wait for your wet gpu to dry enough to ensure that water didnt short it.


seems like to took to many risks,you got lucky this time!
