Hey OCN! I'm late for class so I'll make it short. I developed a leak in my computer last night and while sealing it up, I apparently loosed the fittings on another block. Water leaked all over the board, into the PCI-E ports; the whole nine yards. Everything continued to run after I cleaned it out, but it seemed a few drops got into the my Antec AX1200. I opened it up to clean it out, but I could find no trace of liquid inside it.

When I remove it from the case and jump the pins to boot it, it emits a light buzzing/whirring/snapping sound out of the rear port where the wall plug goes. There's a few caps back there, as well as a plethora of other components I can't identify. Is the PSU shot? The fan won't spin up, and it sounds like the issue is right where the power comes in.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

Yep. It won't boot plugged into the machine, but it will give the grinding/whirring/crackling noise when I jump the pins.

Unfortunately this was my new replacement for my AX1200 that died two months back, so I'm worried I won't be able to RMA it.
