Lol yes I know that but what after the pc was running when
this happened and did not stop even with this coolant on it.
Should the board still work? Or is this on of those test and see
problems? Thanks again

I would strip down the board and remove it. Wash with warm water and dry completely for at least a day. Do the same for the RAM and cards. Hair dryer may prove useful. Water may stay in slots for some time otherwise.

Why are you using liquid cooling? Sound?

Hi yes liquid cooling but it only got on the motherboard and a
tiny bit on the graphics card it was my chipset cooler that
burst so only got on the lower part and as far as I can tell the
coolant ran along the cover for the heat pipe and then driped
onto just the bottom of the board. I will contact gigabyte and
see what they thing about the effect the coolant will have.
Thanks

This thread is a perfect example of why liquid cooling should NOT be used. Why are you using it in the 1st place? And what are you going to use after you dry off your board?

I use it because I was upgrading from my oem which came
with liquid cooling so I just reinstalled it on the new system.
