    This is what I imagine happens wherever there is water in the vicinity of p_o_s_pc:

    i once blew me a TT reservoir, that was laying down on its side in the DVD drive Area. the plastic Lock simply cracked in pieces. and i heard a Waterfall go off in my rig.
    KASLOSH! and suddenly, there was water shooting out of every hole at the bottom.
    luckily the rig was shut down. the next day, i kicked the res over, accidentially, while it had no locking plug. Again, i heard a GOSH! BLubBLubBLub. and the same happened again. this Time the rig was ON, and under load. i nearly shitted myself, no Lie.:eek: luckily, nothing happened!

    EDIT: Pos,painting Mobos and other Hardware does work,but it looks like shit,like crackings over the whole part, only the HDD is cool :p

    All these stories of water in rigs is the reason I'm starting to consider not using the H50 much longer. It's sealed and it's been going strong for about 7 months now... but I think I'll go back to air coolers. At least with a TRUE or Prolimatech your only worry is snapping the board if you swing your case too fast when you move it around.

    No need for the H50 to leak at all

    that was also with my phone...I don't have any good pics of the board when it was clean and out of the case. I don't feel like taking it out and cleaning it as it takes about 2hrs to clean every inch of the board because i do it with a Q-tip and alcohol

    EDIT:I got a random restart last night on the i7 so i gave it a slight bump in voltage. I only upped it 1 step and seems to be fine today and still UNDER 1.21v
