water damage on asrock z77

I recently dusted off my z77 water cooled build with a Asrock z77 pro4 motherboard installed for myself after leaving for my holiday house. when I turn it on, water from my GPU block mount came shooting out, straight on my bios chip, shutting down my pc admittedly. 

After dring it with a hairdryer, I went into the bios with some surprise. All my fans are shown spinning at 65565rpm?! still not finish yet, vcore at 2.04v?!(multimeter check with 1.45v WHICH I DIDN'T SET) and other crazy stuff. bios flash doesn't work. I just want to know why does this happen, already planning on a new motherboard.

I would guess something got screwed up when the water got on the board, messing up all the readings and whatnot.

 

I wish you the best of luck in sourcing a Z77 board for a good price, those boards are way too expensive in my opinion.

If the BIOS supports it, then it will work.

 

I'd look for Z77 though, no reason to go with an older board unless you have to.

Any 6-series or 7-series board will work. The only chipsets that allow overclocking are P67, Z68, Z77. The 6-series boards have less features and only support Ivy Bridge chips after a BIOS flash, should they still rock their original versions.
