Wet SATA power cables
So, I dug out my Corsair modular PSU a few days ago - it's been sitting in my spare room for a few months and I needed a good PSU for a build I'm working on.
I couldn't find the SATA power connectors anywhere. Then I remembered I'd put a load of old PC stuff in the shed a while back, most of it is going to be recycled but those cables had no business being out there so I went to retrieve them.
Then I remembered the crappy, cheap pre-fab shed had leaked a while back and the floor had severely flooded during a recent storm we've had here.
Then I found the SATA connectors, literally sitting in a puddle. They've probably been submerged for several weeks.
The PSU itself is unaffected and has been in the house the whole time.
What do you guys think? Corrosion?
Dangerous to use? Not dangerous if dried out for a few days?
I'd buy some new ones, but they're type-3 and not that easy to come by in my country without some expense.
