I tried to join the club, but ruined my 3570K instead. I'll post pictures later, just a tiny scratch on the bottom right side, but thats all it took (and I'm sure the CPU is dead, I reseated multiple times, checked pins on mobo etc... I booted the mobo no problem with a 2500K in it). I was being so careful with the thing, but my goddamned cat jumped from the window onto me while I was holding the razor. The worst part is the scratch isnt under the IHS, so Im doubtful I can fool RMA with it on the basis of physical damage, even after reseating the IHS with silicone.
Anyone have tips for hiding a scratched PCB? Or am I completely boned? I feel like crying right now... and my cat is going to get tired of sleeping outside pretty quickly, I think.
