Thanks for the info....however, I'm gonna have to give you a D- for Reading Comprehension....I mentioned that I WAS going to use the stock cooler.

Then I don't see a problem with what your doing.

Just make sure you take a video or pics while your doing it and come back here and show us what happens.

According the the reviews I've seen, the stock cooler on the 980 uses screws...

Also, I can't find any more new Asus P6X58D Premium mobo's ANYWHERE! If someone finds one, please let me know....I'll pay you for it, including the shipping, if the one I have turns out to be DOA!

Actually, all of the Gulftowns are supposed to come with rockin' coolers from Intel!

Dont even screw it down just hold it down with a little bit of pressure from your hands....

POST ... -> turn off.

Good idea, thanks! I just might do that!

All fun aside, I appreciate all who contributed useful info and constructive criticism.....I guess my idea was a bad one.

The good news is that I'm now a little bit smarter than I was when I woke up this morning.....thanks, y'all!

This thread made me chuckle. Rather than just mounting the stock cooler, which the OP proposed to do anyway once he got a POST, he was going to go through a probably lengthy and dangerous method which would probably have taken more time and effort.

It is ironic that any leakage of water could potentially have destroyed the board which he was trying to confirm was not DOA.

Furthermore he asked if it was a good idea then waited 7 hours for an answer. Time enough to build the whole system, including a full WC loop, anyway.

Not trying to rip into you Digger1, I just found the whole sequence amusing.

Oh, and there is a multi quote option which you will find useful. To the right of the quote button is the multi quote button, simply toggle that on all the posts you wish to quote then the the quote button on the last post et voila! Your reply will contain all the desired posts. Saves you double, or in this case, quintuple posting. This thread contains more details and also a rundown of the features on OCN.

Hello all,

I have a crazy question to ask y'all:

Would it harm my brand new CPU (an Intel Gulftown i7-980) to cool it using just water and water ice just long enough to verify a good mobo POST during an external check while prepping a new build?

I propose to cool the CPU thusly: When I'm ready to apply power to the mobo for the first time (just to check to see if it POST's), I'd like to apply two drops of water to the exposed surface of the mounted CPU. I would then carefully lay a 4" x 4" square of Saran wrap over the water, ensuring that there are no trapped bubbles. I would then apply about six drops of water to the top of the Saran wrap, right over the CPU. I would then add a few small water ice chips to the six drops of liquid water.

I would then apply power to the mobo just long enough to verify a good POST. I would then disconnect all power to the mobo, remove the Saran wrap, dry off the CPU, and, presuming a good POST, install the Intel CPU cooler IAW the pertinent installation instructions.

If you care to know the reasons behind this proposed thrash, please read on....

I bought the mobo (an Asus P6X58D Premium) from an online vendor (not Newegg or Tiger Direct). It was advertised as new. However, when I got the shipment, the item showed lots of evidence of being on "open box" item. Thus, I'm a bit suspicious. I don't want to go through the hassle of mounting the CPU cooling system, just to discover that the mobo needs to be returned.

Thoughts? Suggestions?
Return it. You paid for a brand new motherboard, you should be receiving a brand new motherboard.
Fearless~

Thanks for the leads.....however both of the links are for refurbs. I'm kinda hopin' for new.

Also, I earlier saw the list on Google Shopping....are any of those vendors reputable? The ones I checked out stunk!

TIA!

Sorry if I offended anyone....I was just sniffin' around while coming up with a plan.

It is ironic that any leakage of water could potentially have destroyed the board which he was trying to confirm was not DOA.

You're assuming I've got some of the other parts.....so far, all I've got is the mobo. I'm just brainstorming before I lay out a game plan.

Not trying to rip into you Digger1, I just found the whole sequence amusing.

Glad I could be of service!

Oh, and there is a multi quote option which you will find useful. To the right of the quote button is the multi quote button, simply toggle that on all the posts you wish to quote then the the quote button on the last post et voila! Your reply will contain all the desired posts. Saves you double, or in this case, quintuple posting.

Now that right there is good gouge. I've got active threads on some biker forums that are older than half of the posters here, but you just taught me something new. And, that's awesome.....thanks! However, as you can see, I'm not indulging. You see, when someone takes the time and trouble to post to one of my threads, I prefer giving each and every person my individual attention.....y'all are EACH that special to me!

This thread contains more details and also a rundown of the features on OCN.

Welcome to the forum!

Thanks for the info!

Hi Cit,

Actually, I'm workin' an RMA as we speak.

If, by some circumstance, I discover that the board is good, what is a good open box $$ delta to negotiate w/ the reseller, in your opinion?

TIA!

One valuable piece of gouge I got from this thread is that cleaning up TIM is no big deal.....I did not realize that! My only experience w/ said task was cleaning up a four year-old laptop CPU, and that was a PIA!

Thanks, y'all! I'll just mount the stock cooler (I plan to stick with it anyway, since the 980s are supposed to have sh1zz hot coolers!
