Fried Mobo

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Okay basically im 99% sure I fried my Z68-ud5 last week so this week i went and grabbed the Z68x-ud7 (i need this rig running asap).
My question is, will i need to put more thermal paste on when I seat everything on the new board or will i be able to get away with just putting the chip back in and putting my H80 back on top again. Main reason is because today is my only day off work for a while and i want to get this done today, butt i so conveniently don't have any thermal paste left -.-.
Basically, would i be able to get away with that and then replace it when i have time to go and grab some, i won't be overclocking anything just yet and im just going to be gaming so the CPU shouldn't be to stressed

lol won't be stress. Sure.

I would watch my temps very closely if you do that. You may be able to get away with it for a little.

lol I just realized what i actually said in that last part *face palm*
Before i killed the thing i never saw the temps go above 40C and that was after some intense gaming for a few hours as well which is the only reason why im thinking i might be able to get away with it, at the same time, a fried CPU and mobo in two weeks isn't really something i want

EDIT:
Anyone care to suggest some good temp monitoring stuff as well?

Temps are good up to 98 on the core technically, but it is commonly accepted at 85C from members on OCN. So you should be good lol

I've done it with my stock heatsink 10+ times without any problems. It depends on the type of thermal paste. If the past is viscous it tends to stay in the same spot, you should be alright with this type of paste. If your thermal paste is runny than you may need to apply new paste. If your CPU is overclocked it should be OK temporarily, but I would replace it ASAP.
