Bummer. Must be some kind of leak. A drop of water is enough. My system is running without maintenance and leaking for 7 years now but I did extensive trials for leakage before firing up the system. Sorry for your loss. Hopefully it's just the MOBO ](*,) Did you try putting water towels everywhere, while only the pump is working? If not, try that and you will see if the slightest drop of liquid would leak anywhere.
Already done 1 hour leak testing before I ran the system and not a single drop. Then after 30 mins of the system running sweet as a nut during timespy benchmarking the pcie port went up in smoke. I jumped up to turn the system off at the mains and as I did the fire burst out and fried my gpu and mobo. I leak tested again just the pump and nothing. I now worry that I did something else to have made this happen and I wont be able to rma the board and the gpu and have lost £1200.
Oh man, thats gotta hurt! Sorry to hear this!
I hope your rma goes through! Thats a lot to lose!

OUCH. I have only ever seen one fire in a computer system and that came from the PSU. Lots of sparks and smoke but never fire. That sucks!

Ok so take a TON of pictures and try to determine if the MB or GPU was the cause. Once you find that out then get ahold of the manufacturer as it definitely seems like something went wonky. If the ASSUCKS board is the cause then they will probably blame you since they are gods and never have a thing wrong with their crappy equipment. DON'T WAIT. Something like this you want to get those pics and get them to the company ASAP and find out if they need the board(s) back or whatever. Make sure you send them back using a tracking service (like UPS or FEDEX) so you can make sure they dont screw you and say they never got it.

I doubt it was the water loop. I am no expert but with you testing it again that seems to be just fine.

ok so Asrock have informed me that they need pics that I have now sent and have said if water damage was the reason (which no doubt they will find it and say it was for the sake of it) warranty will be void and I have lost my mobo and gpu. I have no idea whether the cpu and ram are fine but I believe they are fine so not all is lost I hope :)

ok so Asrock have accepted the RMA through Scan Computers but will not except the gpu. Inno3d ask for pics of the gpu and even though they knew the gpu was fire damaged, after seeing the pics, they voided my warranty and said that due to this fire damaged warranty will be voided for serial number blah blah blah. What a joke. I have now lost a £410 GPU :cry:

I too was thinking of going with a water cooled setup? Any recommendations? Will corsair 280mm pump would be ok for my i5 8600k?

If the MB was the cause then ASSUCKS should replace everything! I can see the GPU manufacturer denying it if the MB was the cause because their equipment wasnt at fault.

ASSucks is refusing the repair/replacement of my gpu as the fire damage is bad enough that they cannot tell if mobo or gpu was the cause. I will fight this until I get a replacement/refund from Asrock as this is bad customer service in my book
