Default Question?

If I were to unplug a fan from a computer, then accidentally get that fan pretty wet, and then let that fan dry, and then plug it back into a computer, would it short circuit it? Or will it not?

I accidentally got a fan soaked with water, and even though it is dry I am afraid it will do something bad to mah beloved compy D':

It should be fine, make sure it is totally dry though and you have not missed any pockets of water hidden anywhere, personally id leave it alone for 2/3 days to be on the safe side. I'm not sure if getting it wet will then start it to rust over time you will have to keep your fingers crossed
