I NEED HELP! LIKE NOW! URGENT!

Recommended Posts

turn it off, dry it as much as you can and don't turn it on for a long time until the water evaporates by itself...that's pretty much all i can think of but chances are if it turned of by itself, somethings fried :/

Leave it unplugged for a few days so the board doesn't get any power. When power goes through circuits with water on top, the destruction process happens much much quicker.

Do any boards detect moisture and automatically shut off as a counter measure?

not sure. if it helps im running (well was running) an i3-2130 on a gigabyte h61m-ds2h with a xfx radeon 5770, two hard drives and kingston memory

Doesn't really help, as electronics are electronics. My rig is just as susceptible to moisture as yours.

also one other thing, does thermal compound dry? because im just using the stock one right now and i dont really wanna buy more to replace it if it drys in the 3 day period 

and also do i really need to use 99% isopropyl alcohol to clean my cpu/heatsink off? because i have no idea where to get that.

Cheap stuff can dry out. But generally, it shouldn't.

so its okay if its dry?

Thermal paste should be kind of gooey. But as long as your temps are within a safe range, I wouldn't worry about it.

Your best effort is the easiest thing to give to someone else..
