I'm guessing those 27' monitors are 1440p/1600p? Those 2x R9 290X cards will drive those displays very nicely. Just make sure you get a good cooler sufficient enough to take care of that 9590 that you got there :)

Very nice man. Congrats.

good luck dude. I am sure it will be fine if you give it a few days to dry. Then clean any spilled areas with isopropyl too then let dry an hour atleast before starting up just to be on the safe side.

Was it the zalman that leaked? I'm paranoid my AIO in my itx will leak and since its so small ... :(

I think CPU is tost. it was the OEM AMD cooler that leaked. Ordered a new CPU will RMA the other one. They will only replace it not refund it. RMA's take about 30 days don't want to wait that long to get my rig running. I may end up putting the replacement in my other rig or sell it.

So will they replace CPU also seeing as it was their cooler that failed.

Got the new CPU Still done the same thing. Pulled all the ram and CPU, installed in my other PC and ran MemTest86 and prime95. All tested fine.
Kept screwing with new setup, finally got it running, funny thing is when I reboot it I always makes me go into bios set it to optimized defaults. It's a pain in the butt. It will not restart on it's own I have to press the "go" button on the mobo and wait for it to boot. I'm outta ideas. Thinking of ordering another mobo to see if that was the issue. Anyone looking a FX-9590 and a Zalman LQ315 CPU cooler?
