Indigo Extreme LGA 2011 mess-up

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hello all on Overclock.net

I have a Asrock Extreme 6/Gb a 3930-K a H100 and indigo extreme LGA 2011, even trough it was the very first boot-up of the machine I decided I wanted to go straight for the indigo extreme.

And that is what I did, I documented myself a long time I followed this video tutorial: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xw_hpiLtwAI

And did a successful perfect burn on the first try thanks to the ability of windows 8 to boot up on different hardware. I had real temp and prime95 shortcuts and also the speed fan installer on the desktop. I took my hardrive from my old rig and plugged it in.

Everything went according to plan and my burn yielded these results :


BUT I was a goofball and I was trying to recable some RAM fans while the system was lit, I accidentally unplugged the pump's power and my system overheated to the point of crashing I didn't even have temps open so I didn't realize what was going on.

I can definitely tell the tim melted again because now the bud that melted on the side has grown and flattened on top of the h100 pump (the case was upright, your supposed to do indigo burns with the motherboard flat on the ground)

And now I'm getting 30-40 idle!


is there any way to fix this ? I only bought a set of one and I had it brought over by a friend in the us to france.

If the TIM is burnt, then you will have to order some more and reapply it. Honestly I would not do any stressful things like try and benchmark a game or something until the new TIM arrives.

It is not likely that the CPU is damaged as your temps are still pretty good even though the compound is not.

If the TIM is still mostly on the CPU die or H100, you can do the same and it should reflow. If it is over the edges and what not, you're going to have to get a new application.

alright thanks in my opinion there is now too much tim outside and reflowing again would only cause more tim to spill out. the one crazy thing I can think of is untightening the screws during reflow and tightening back up but I don't know if that would mess things up even more. I'm considering suckering it up and dealing with my screw up.

As for getting my hands on indigo extreme again that is a near impossibility.
