    Default Water in front USB port, Low FPS

    Earlier I was leaning over to place something in USB port when a small amount of water dropped onto the front USB 3.0


    I am now experiencing much lower frame rates and other issues but benchmarks seem to be fine.


    How could this damage other components, would it transfer something through to the motherboard and cause some sort of short through the power?

    No. It would not.

    Thanks.

    Out of curiosity, if small amount of water got onto components from normal use say breathing over them while installing etc would the effects be completely obvious.

    It's the grey area that sends my OCD through the roof!

    No. If it's enough moisture to cause a short, then short circuit protection would prevail.
