This is an issue I seem to have resolved, though I thought I'd share this and get some opinions from others who are fairly knowledgeable when it comes to personal computers hardware. So earlier this day Murphy's Law kicked in due to a carelessly placed bottle of water with no lid tipping and nearly falling onto my desktops tower, hardly spilling more than an 1/8 cup of water, but enough to incite panic. I immediately hit the power switch on my psu and promptly unplugged it to ensure no electrical charge was reaching any of the hardware. As for the water on, it splashed down through the top two exhaust fans, spraying droplets all over the motherboard, luckily the large heat sink attached to my cpu caught quite a bit of the water and kept it away from the cpu, leaving only the partially shielded gpu, an EVGA GTX 960. I went ahead and pulled every single component, noticing enough water was in the gpu to leak out of it. I went ahead and used a hair dryer with only the air setting on with no heat to get excess water off the hardware and left everything to sit and dry for about nine or so hours. After a quick look over everything I reassembled my rig and flipped the power back on. Everything seemed to be working fine for a moment. Then I began noticing some wonky stuff happening. Firstly, the hdmi television I have hooked up wasn't being detected what so ever. On top of that, my sound wasn't responding, 'nor was the xbox 360 controller which was hooked up. Well, first things first, re-install the drivers for said equipment. The sound and controller were no issue, but nvidia decided it didn't want to leave. So this involved having to delete everything involving nvidia. Not a big issue, though it had me worried I may have shorted something. Though I didn't smell any burning plastic or metal, that isn't always the case of a hardware malfunction and my experience with spilling liquids on a computer was limited to "oh shit, first time." Luckily, a clean install did the trick and I'm not seeing anymore problems after a wee bit of work. So my questions here are: How much water can modern home computers take in terms of water on live hardware? That and could problems arise later than I'm not experiencing now?
