he woke up to it off according to the OP. Assuming it was on overnight when it leaked, so drying wont really help what has already caused the short.

Actually the machine was off for a couple of days as I was out of town. When I got back, I started it up and found it was not giving me any display and failing to boot. I restarted it once more, and when it failed to boot, I shut if off and pulled the cabinet forward to check the cables at the back and open it up. That's when I found a pool of coolant on the floor under the cabinet, and on the video card inside.

The machine must have been on for about 2-3 minutes while I was trying to make it boot before I discovered the leak - I'm worried that is probably long enough to have fried things, but I'm still hoping it has somehow escaped permanent damage.

I haven't given it another shot yet - will probably try this weekend. This doesn't look like a good sign though:

I still can get my hands on it. The only bad thing about trichlor is it WILL eat anything that may be rubber and also disolve any oil in things like bearings that would be in those motors like GPU fans and such. So a complete tear down and lube would be in order.
It is one heck of a degreaser and cleaner. I've even used it to pull ink out of carpets before and it does wonders from removing road tar from your car! :D

I wonder if he could use automotive mass air flow sensor cleaner. Its an electrical contact clean and is used around plastic and rubber parts without ill effect. comes in a handy spray can

No, thanks to Corsair's great customer support, I have received a replacement cooler and was supposed to be compensated for my GPU as well - it's this compensation bit that has not happened yet.

I've not been getting replies to follow-up emails for the past couple of months, so thought I'd try my luck here.
