Whoa! Personally I'd avoid the dishwasher! Not because it's a dishwasher, but because of the potential for local water hazards to the pcb traces. If you aren't worried about the tap water, try using the spray hose on the sink with very cold water then very hot? Second, cleaning it by hand can't be THAT hard can it?! But W/E.

Process for cleaning a board:

1) Get as much off by hand as possible. If it's covered in vaseline, use a hair drier or heat gun to melt it.
2) Remove all heatsinks and batteries.
3) Put in dishwasher on rinse only.
4) Rinse off with distilled water.
5) Let dry for at least 24 hours or dry in the oven.

Step 4 is how you avoid your point!

Not the socket cover, but the actual socket itself with all 1,366 pins inside. I know that can be replaced, but first you have to get one, and second you have to have a heat room and it has to be balled first. I can't do any of that.

1000F heat gun. can be had for $60~ maybe less. 1155/1156 sockets i imagine are very similar, they are pretty easy to do.

edit: this heat gun is probably the best investment i have ever made.

deballs simplified ( keep your board held flat ), gpu's resurrected, ps3's and 3suxties are simple non-LOD's

edit2: i did just have a brainsizzle. ive been repairing very cheap boards, socket seems to peel right off around 800F. an R3E may have much higher quality balls. so my point may very well be moot.

Heck I'll give you $150 for it as is. But you would probably be better off cleaning it and selling it for more.

I have the heat gun (paid $23 for it a few days ago at Home Depot).

I'm still wondering how you think it would be easy to replace, though...

It's worth the effort, you'll get back more of your investment. Say you replaced the socket and that got rid of the boot issues then you would get more obviously and make the sale quicker.

Rinsing it with distilled does HELP, assuming the water is relatively pure of anything but normal low level minerals.
Not the case in many places!
I used to wash keyboards at the old house ALL the time.... here(different water system/supply) ... regardless of how fast they are rinsed and dried.... they will have some trace corrosion...

Replacing the socket seems like it would be work than just cleaning it?

How would you put a new socket on? Taking it off would seem easy enough if you say you get them off at 800F.

I have never seen a board without a socket so I don't know how they stick back on.
If you have any pics I would really like to see them!

when i pull an 1156 socket off, the balls stay on the board for the most part, if not just pluck them off and set them back on a spot of flux. its not liek they are unobtainium, they are little solder balls stuck to a different material. i cant seem to get them hot enough for them to actually change shape.

when reapplying the socket, sometimes need to heat the socket a couple of times.

if you can clean it thats probably going to be easier anyways, if you bend a pin or two there are tools to replace pins, and pins are available as well.

when we replace a socket, its usually because of socket-ward thumbs in which case 100+ pins are smooshed.
