Water Loop Leak

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
I left my computer on all night, folding. I realized in the morning that my tubing had slipped, somehow, off the **** barb and my acrylic reservoir is empty. As soon as I found out, I turned off the computer and put towels in my case to soak everything up. I need your help telling me how to deal with the situation. Here's the lowdown:
Video card - destroyed -- water is all over the freakin thing.
Motherboard - pretty sure it's okay. It posts. But I had to do some extensive toweling.
PSU - Protected because of video card (best umbrella ever)
Hard drives - Dry as a grand canyon.
WHAT SHOULD I DO?
Xfx won't take my card back, right?

dry your card REAL well so it looks like it wasn't soaked at all and then send it back to xfx

Yeah, Put your gfx card in the airing cupboard for a day or 2, Could work if you boot it up after, Someone put it in a bowl of rice once and it worked after.

disassemble it and give it a good cleaning with an air canister. Make sure no water is left and that there is no evidence of rust or corrosion on the components then its rma time

this can be 3 things, he didnt clamp, didnt tighten it enough, or the piece of tubing is too short, either way, dry that card out with a canister it should start, i did it with my friend's gtx295 after he had the same problem, if it doesnt work, rma

I can't believe you guys are saying RMA it! Should XFX honor his mess?
