I know there is a few links around with the wire method and conductive grease etc,But I though I would share my simple but effective method.I have used the wire method,but damn its hard to see and cross your fingers and prey etc. So what I did was use a conductive pen and a needle.Use the needle to make a track or channel between the pins.With the conductive pen make a small puddle on a piece of plastic.Dip the tip of the needle into the puddle of goo and go back between the pins on the cpu again.gently does it and don't use to much on the needle.
Perfect and clean results.
I am now able to set the vcore in my Bd7 board all the way to 2.2 if I want :)
