    IS my mobo fooked?

    Right, all started off with my water cooling experiment, basically tried to cool pc etc etc, however during process, sprung a leak, (Only a small one) but now pc is playing up.

    Sometimes it posts, then dies, sometimes it logs in then dies, sometime the screen doesnt even power on.

    Have changed gfx cards to no avail,

    Changed ram,

    Removed all pci cards,

    Only thing left is cpu and mobo, can chuck cpu in the mrs pc tomorrow to find out if its running fine or not. If not that leads to the mobo being fooked!!!!!!

    Any recomendations for a new mobo? any mobos lying round thAt you wanna sell?

    Any help is appreciated.

    There might be some water under one of the chips, the only thing you can really do is leave it in a dry a place for a while.

    ok hair dryer failed,

    Put ram, cpu, gfx, pci cards, all into other pc. All worked fine.

    Which leads to a "Broken" (Hows that agent ) mobo, any recomendations

    Get a Asrock k7s8x. Haven't had any problems with it and they can be had very cheaply. Will you be overclocking or not?
