    That sucks, glad you have a plan to recifty it. Lesson learned I'm sure.
    Yes the lesson is don't rush and make mistakes. I believe water cooling is safe if you take your time, plan and work carefully. It does require patience.

    Most certainly, though I meant more on the thinking it was dry from just a hair dryer. Better to leave it for a few days. Hard to do though if it's your production machine.

    You are right, I should have drained and stripped everything out the first time. I shouldn't have taken the chance thinking it was dry enough. It's never happened to me before and I panicked. Hard lesson learnt. I've been planning endlessly the last three weeks to ensure this won't happen again, it can't happen again.

    Hello everyone.
    Unfortunately I had a little accident with liquid in my PC. Some got spilled onto the motherboard and apparently I did not dry it thoroughly enough before powering it up again. The Display Port signal keep cutting out which seemed very unusual. I decided to strip the motherboard out and found wet liquid still underneath the I/O cover (where the hair dryer couldn't reach). At this point I assumed the liquid surely has done damage.
    Hi,
    So what leaked cpu cooler or hosing to it or some where else ?

    EK has some pretty inconsistent block assembly I've noticed
    CPU block has 4 freaking screws lol and none are the same torque
    GPU blocks no different except more screw and torque inconsistencies which nearly leaked on me I saw fluid outside the gasket fortunately before it really messed things up.

    EK does also have weird fitting and soft hosing sizes that do not match
    Most both hosing and fitting match
    10-13/ 10-16..
    3/8-1/2/ 3/8-5/8..

    EK not so much.

    No leak. When I was draining the loop I must have left the reservoir fill cap loose. I tipped the case backwards a whole 90 degrees, the res cap fell out and about 5ml of liquid at the very bottom on the res went splashing over the motherboard. I think it went splashing towards the back of the motherboard and when I tipped the case back it probably ran down. The Mayhem's X1 coolant I used is supposed to be non conductive but apparently caused damage in this case. I noticed it leaves a sticky residue and doesn't dry quickly.

    The problem is that liquid went under the motherboard I/O cover and that was not discovered until I removed the motherboard from the case and unscrewed the I/O cover off the board. As rvcjew said I should have dried everything longer before powering up again.

    From what I'm seeing and hearing EK do have some QC issues. A lot of their fittings use Metric tools.

    My pump died a couple of weeks back so I took the opportunity to upgrade a few other bits.

    CPU block replaced with EK RGB Velocity CPU Block.
    Pump replaced with EKWB 140 D5 RGB
    Radiator fans replaced with Corsair LL120 RGB 120mm Dual Light fans

    Hi,
    Nice but what brand model pump died ?

    Doubt you'll have issues with ek pwm D5 I have four of them still up and running is two rigs.

    I'm not crazy about the reservoir base combo especially where the tube screws into the bases black plastic and tube threads are a little wonky black base seems to have a little deeper thread than the tube has either way I have two of them non rgb.

    EK velocity is a good cpu block though ek finally changed their design removed the razor blade jet plate and now it's pretty close to heatkiller 4 pro design water flow wise.
