H50 Leak X.X - Page 3

post #21 of 47
Is it just me or do the pictures of the video card show almost no water on it? I saw just a few drops. Since the system was off when this happened, I'm curious as to how anything got "fried" if it wouldn't even POST?

Something similar happened to me a couple weeks ago when I carelessly missed some water that dropped onto my motherboard and behind the CMOS battery as I was trying to drain a loop. The mobo wouldn't even POST after that - which, again, I don't understand, as the system obviously wasn't on during the leak. In my case, it wasn't even plugged in.

Can things electrically short out or get damaged without any obvious smoke, smell, or popping noise?

If you look closely you will see a whole line go from the where the video card starts (at the PCI-E lane) to the end of the card where the SLI brackets go. You'll notice where it starts because there is a white residue on it and then you'll see it moving down as a clear puddle (the area that didn't dry).

Unable to tell if the video card has fried due to it not being fully dry yet. I'll be able to tell tomorrow when I can be sure that the residue and liquid are gone.
