I'm currently running my pc just fine and strangely my graphics card is covered with water that leaked out of my cpu loop. The computer has been on for a day or two, and it must have been running like this for hours since the cpu loop is only leaking at maybe a drop per 2 minutes and there's quite a bit of water on the back. I'm going to the gas station to get some lottery tickets, anybody want one? Distilled water <= God when it comes to water cooling.

But can it run Crysis?

Haha, very lucky. Just pop the graphics card out and dry that sucker off and secure your loop.

Take it out, and let it sit on a towel for 24-48 hours, and all will be well and good. Don't try to artificially dry it (oven/hair drier), they do more damage than they solve. Just let the card sit out for a while to air try. This is why distilled is the way to go. Also, re-tighten your loop!

Jesus is right, let it air dry until Friday.

Reminds me of the day I came home and had this EVERYWHERE. Walls, carpet, PC, desk, everywhere. Hence the reason I use clamps or compression fittings now

What fittings and size tubing are on the CPU? I have not had a single leak from barb since going to 7/16 tubing and 1/2" Fat Boy barbs.

What if air is actually poisonous and it actually takes ~80 years to kill us?
What if water is an addictive drug and the withdrawals kill us a few days later?
What if we are close to death and we are living life in a flash at this moment?

distilled is not God, it is still conductive and to explain what happend I don't know but happense to my card as well, drops on the back of solder does nothing but when it touches the power, the caps or front of card it does it.

Note: water picks up the metal particles and the dust particles when it driped onto the card, thus its still conductive.
