You could probably power it up now.
He was tilting the case on its side when this happened, its possible that water got into the PSU.

Why take the risk? I mean yeah I would take the risk of jump starting the power supply IF I REALLY NEEDED to use my computer.

I would disconnect everything else though.

It was in the upright position, then alot of bubly noise, I held across the tube coming from the bottomn rad, cus I thought it would come out there. then it came out the GPU.

But I think I may have exagurated how much came "into" the PSU, wont open it though since its still under warranty. But I will wait untill midday on Friday, and power it up then.

Well that is good to hear...I just like to be overly cautious other than optimistic. Specially when the equipment is not my own.

Best of Luck! Stay dry!

Don't risk it...take your time.

Use a blowdryer set to low/no heat on high speed to dry out as much liquid as possible..then wait a minimum 24hrs to make sure there isn't a rogue droplet anywhere. An air compressor would help too...be gentle and take your time.

yeah take a blowdryer to it then let it air dry for a few hours.. should be good to go

Have it standing like this now.

I keep the Moisture Absorbant packets just for this sort of occasion. They used to come in shoe boxes and all sorts of Tech boxes, dunno if they still do.

If you have any, place the PSU in a Zip-Lock bag with a couple of these absorbant packs and seal the bag. Leave for a night or two and you should be good. Works great for small spills like this.

If you drowned the PSU check your warranty conditions cause you may have voided it already, open her up and use the Rice method.

IF you used distilled water you should be fine thus distilled water does not conduct electricity so you should be safe...
