I would guess leaking from the main case through bolts.. (not good) they probably squeezed the o rings to tight or they tore
What I was thinking too! I used the nice green Vitton through bolt o-rings, lubed with a Dow Corning product. The blue o-rings that come in the typical Reinz gasket kit are easily torn/ripped. You should be able to inspect the case through bolts by removing the left and right air duct covers and/or the fan housing.
