No need for pt nuke with the coolant I use as nothing is going to grow in it. Also for some reason deionised or distilled water is almost impossible to findin japan. Especially when my Japanese skills are about that of a 3 year old.

Ouch... let it dry and dont forget to rest the cmos, or even may think about posting with it set to reset... if there was a failure that "may" help to clear it... but it really needs to be dry first... and remember warm air holds more moisture than cold air... so rather than a hairdryer turn up the heat in your location and just vent the thing. Hairdryer is wrong for lots of reasons...

ahh good then

rice and a nice dry room should get it dry
just leave it for a day or so

and make sure all the little gaps ie PCIE, SATA slots are dry before you power it back on

And make sure there aren't any bits of rice stuck in small gaps either lol... The rice trick should do it though.

Seeing as how torches are used during LHD, I don't see how a hair dryer is "wrong for lots of reasons". Perhaps you have some reasoning behind the statement? A Hairdryer sure beats putting your components in a bucket of rice.

Oh, and if there's an error, the cmos clears itself. You don't have to manually clear it.

Static isn't going to conduct itself along air, so, no.

The rice method is a terrible alternative. Rice powder covers all the rice grains and requires you to clean off the board with alcohol. It's amazing that someone would advocate covering their board up with rice over using a blow dryer (you can turn the heat off on a blow dryer and blow ambient air).

Using a blowdryer/hairdryer is the quickest way to get rid of the moisture but it also helps to place the board in front of a fan for a few hrs after doing that to make double sure steam/water vapor from the heat has been dried out too.
If you have any or can get some, a quick cleaning with circuit board cleaner is also helpful to remove any possible contaminants sitting on the board's surface causing voltage creep or bleed over.

Once the system is working as it should, you can do as I've done and use a film of dielectric grease to coat the board.
You don't have to glob it on, just get a thin film of it on each board component to seal the board in this way, plus CB cleaner will remove it if needed. Be sure to completely coat the components from all sides/angles to ensure the sealing of these components and be sure to remove the excess grease - Again all that's needed is a thin film of it. You can also get it into slots and the like you would suspect would be vulnerable to moisture getting in and it also makes your RAM easier to install too.

I have a videocard that was spared death several times from the coating I gave it, complete with water pooling up on the card from a coolant leak but the card never missed a beat and still works today.
This is one method you can use to help combat problems with water or condensation hurting things. Be sure if you do this, get the clear grease, not the white stuff. What I got came from O'Reileys auto parts and it's called CRC Technician grade Di-Electric grease compound and it comes in a small 3.3 oz can.

Good stuff.
