[PT Archive '08]: Fun With Coolants

The lengths that I'll go to in order to make a point... My quest against pre-mixed coolants marketed as "non-conductive" PC coolants continues and, this time around, I end up killing a couple motherboards.  Video goodness ensues.

Okay, so it's a little late to the blog but better late than never.  As a quick bit of lead-in, here's the YouTube description for this episode of PT Quick Clips (hopefully, this will turn into an ongoing video series):

Continuing my griping about "non-conductive" coolants and the marketing thereof, I've decided to have a little fun with a couple of motherboards, some "non-conductive" coolant, and a bottle of distilled water.

It's important to note that all of the components used were thoroughly cleaned with clean air, 99.9% IPA, and contact cleaner prior to taking a bath. The two motherboards were brand new Abit IB9's and the catch tray was cleaned with soapy water, rinsed with distilled water, rinsed with 99.9% IPA, and allowed to dry before each "test".

*Update* After letting both boards dry and cleaning them thoroughly, neither of them function--don't spill things on your motherboard!"
