I swear this craps like bubble gum. What should I use/do to remove it from the chip?
Geez what are you load temps? Got enough rad?
I use alcohol and a toothbrush. Works great and soft enough you won't knock and of the resistors etc.. loose. Then final clean with a coffee filter. I use this a lot on GFX cards when swapping cooler to block sometimes the TIM gets a bit messy around the chip.
Well it came off the chip easily enough using a heatgun and some isopropyl, but now that I'm considering replacing the aftermarket sinks with the stock ones I guess gasoline could be fun.....
Now the look my wife would give me, seeing me cleaning my motherboard with gas would be classic!!!!
How long have you had your board DNRDustin?
Curious as to how long this termal paste stuff lasts in a mobo...
