Final Result:

Before:






Afterwards:




The plug connecting to the rail gave out because liquid touched it, so I labeled it. Graphics card was replaced and whole case, even radiator, was cleaned out and somewhat better wire management until I get a newer case. I have to learn how to be more careful with my water and drinks next time and forever!

Good to hear you got it fixed. Not sure what your doing, but for myself, I like to keep all my pc's up and off the floor about 3 feet or more. I use some small end tables. Keeps them cleaner too

Best I can do is putting it on a marble slab I found so it is off the carpet.

I forget which two wires but you jump 2 and it gets the signal to power on so you don't need a switch. Kind of like jumping the 2 pins on the MB minus the MB.
