I have an Asus Rampage IV Formula motherboard, which I washed in the dishwasher today. Before you freak out, derbauer and others have guides about this and I've done this countless times successfully with many different mobos. As long as you make sure everything is 101% dry before you fire it up, it is a completely safe process. However, this time I somehow forgot to remove the cmos battery and washed the mobo with it... I have a full custom wc loop which I ordered parts for, so right now I cannot test the board (also, it has to dry for 1-2 days before it's safe to try). In general, what circuitry if any would be damaged by this? Is my mobo dead? What does the cmos battery do exactly? I'm panicking a bit... Thanks for your input.
