Default I am so freaking lucky!! Need water block advise

On Sunday powered on the system worked fine for a while then all of a sudden blue screen and shutdown thinking what the hell is going on. Opened the case to find my Swiftech waterblock leaking water all over the motherboard CPU video card EVERYTHING. So quickly mopped up and found the sealing had given away from the bottom corner of the block and leaked all the way down. I panicked needless to say trying to get the powercable out while mopping up the water and trying to get as much out of the way from the water and stop the water from spilling out futher all at once. Well luckly i was able to do a basic test and seems nothing died from it. Although left the CPU and motherboard in the airing cuboard for 18 hours to make sure they dreid out well and still seems to work. But as i don't have a HSF with a mount bracket i can only see if it powers on and thats it.

I will need a new water block and pump as it was an all in one unit. The tubing i have is 3/8" so any ideas for a good, pump and waterblock? I will be billing Swiftech for them due to the manufactures defect of their water block which could of caused a lot of damage.

That happened to the rig in your sig? That could have been costly indeed.I was really thinking about liquid cooling my next system,but I heard a few stories about leaky fittings,blocks,etc.Good for extreme overclocking use though.Glad to hear you didnt electrocute yourself

Yeah it was that rig. Have not tested the video card but has min water on it just a few drops so i think it should be fine.

I have spilt a lot of liquid on components before and as long as you let them dry out well they "SHOULD" be OK, I had 7800GTX that wasnt so lucky with rootbeer...

I've heard of stories where this has happened and people pouring isopropyl alcohol on the component that had water on it to help with drying.

Not suggesting this at all, as "I" personally have never done anything like this.

Glad you didn't get electrocuted!

Well the base has not melted at all and apart from a micro fracture seems fine including the pump. As the pump was still pushing coolent about.

Wow man thats harsh, the first thing i did was unplug all the power remove all devices and rather test the system left it in the warm airing unit for nearly 24 hours. I do know that the water did get into the PCI-E slots and some USB connectors. But even if my board is nolonger fully stable i still need to send my ABIT 680i back waiting for the ASUS MAX 2 board to come out and pick that up.
