Yep, I'm dumb.

So anyway, I bring my computer home today since I've been taking it to the shop everyday trying to sell it, I sell my computers periodically to offset the price of a new one every quarter. Anyway, I hook everything back up and fire it up, keep in mind this is a water cooled computer. I go and get a bite to eat and come back and my screen is black, and I am like WTF, I know I don't have that power save crap enabled, I move the mouse and press a bunch of keys and nothing.

So I tilt the case on its side to look inside and I hear a loud hissing noise, which was actually water from the tubes running into my copper water block and evaporating at an insane rate. Thats right, I FORGOT TO PLUG IN MY PUMP. How STUPID. Now I am completely convinced I will being shelling out three bills for an XP2000+ tomorrow, so I plug in the pump to keep the water circulating and go do something else.

I come back and just to try I turn on my computer, and to my amazement it posts, and even loads windows. After a few 3dmark loops and Sandra benchmarks, its determinted my XP1700+ has suffered no short term damage. This CPU seems to be very resilient.
