Not good, a seal went on my cooling system this morning, been leaing for a while it looks, but this morning, total disater, water filled case rather than water cooled.

So after the clean up I have now fitted my original heat sink, but surprise surprise now I have nothing, no boot , one light on one of the RAM chips (Corsair 3500LLPro) then it goes off after 15 secs but no other activity at all.

I have taken off all the components that I can, stripped it bare, I have re-fited the heat sink and have test the pwer pack on another board works fine, the graphics cards seem to be ok although they got very wet. Sound card is totalled but I have a spare in now,

What you reckon?

Don?

I reckon a Captain earns enough to buy a new motherboard.

The drives and CPU will most likely be fine.
Video card(s) may be ok after a good drying out.

If you cover the travel costs I'll call over in the morning.

Connect the motherboard outside of the case with no video card or memory.

Make sure you only use the heatsink/CPU and have the case speaker connected.

If the system beeps, then the CPU will be fine. Then repeat with 1 stick of memory at a time. Follow that with all the memory (if it's ok) and one video card at a time.

Finally put all the working components into the case.

Where was the water leak in the loop ?
