Wow, sounds cool. Take some pictures of the motherboard before you put it in, and after it comes out...

Then take a picture as soon as you plug in all the components and turn it on. I would like to see everything ignite in one big puff of smelly black smoke.

mainboards should not be put through such torture .Lay them to rest with honor after you throw them across the room stomp them into the tile like the crap they are. Run over them with your mobile unit , plug them into a 220 socket ( you no you want to )
A couple of slams with Galiger`s hammer . Finaly after you`ve paid it back for all the stress it has caused you .Bury it in the back yard .

If it really doesn't work and its garbage anyways. So you can try an experiment to see if it will make it work again. The only thing I recommend is once you wash it let it sit out for at least 48 hours to insure that all the moisture is for the board.
