I can't find a general discussion sub forum so I hope I am posting this in the right place. I had a mishap in which the remnants of a bowl of cereal fell to the floor, blasting milk and bits of cereal all over the place, most importantly all over the back of my brand new build which, of course, just happened to have the back glass off the case. Best I can tell the fallout is limited to the back of the mobo thru the cutout. I tried powering on then and yesterday, which is about a week apart. The LED's on the mobo are on, but pressing the power button results in no life. I was thinking (hoping) the milk is shorting everything out because it's all over place but beyond that and taking it out and cleaning it I have no idea where to start trying to figure out if the board is bricked or not. If so, it's not so bad because I am wanting to stick an itx or matx board in one of those new Metallic Gear cases. But I did drop a grip of $$ on this mobo (Crosshair VI) and hate to see it go to waste. Any ideas on what to do/where to start? Thanks.
