90% distilled water + 10% zerex all over the motherboard PCB and it may have gotten on the GPU PCB or possibly even in the CPU socket since they were both relatively close but I honestly couldn't tell

Cleaned it up with some alcohol and let it dry for a few days and it's been working fine for about 8 months since then
