Thermal paste over the motherboard

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Just now I was trying to install my new hyper 412s and maybe I putted too much thermal paste (coller master ic essential E1). Now when I tried to remove the cooler to clean and start again some of the paste got out of the cpu and went over the socket, some of the wholes are covered, also some of the pins of the chip (fx8350) are covered by paste. Please help, what should I do?

I'm trying to clean the chip as much as i can witht 90 % denaturated alcohol.

You didn't follow that method to apply it.. did you?

Thermal paste in the holes.. that sounds quite extreme..

V I'm sure that it's non-conductive in its 100% pure form, but when contaminated with dust and such, doesn't it become conductive? The same with DI and distilled water?

Grease cleanser included for easy cleaning away old thermal grease

this is right from cooler master's website, Seeing how it is nonconductive i would see you are fine. Just clean up everything you can and soak it with some isoprohic alcohol 97%

It should be fine.

In fact I did followed the giude, but probably I putted too much on the center and since the Hyper 412s its a bit tricky to install, the paste was just moving around and spilled.

I have some paster over the pins of the cpu, what about that?

I have couple of holes of the socket 5-6 covered with TP, and 2/3 of the last line of pinf of the cpu. Just started cleaning with a needle, but dont see big results. If i put some of the alcohol over this line, should it be ok?

Ok, I go some photos of the socket. So far I cleaned the bigger part I can say. I have tried to put the cpu into the socket to see if there are any blocked holes, everything is good. Now I am trying to finish the socket cleaning with a toothbrush and when its dry I'll mount it all again to check if its running. As for the CPU pins i clean them all with the toothbrush (soft one).

Thanks for the help everyone! wink.gif

go ahead and take the mobo out and pour alcohol 97% iso over this, make sure you have the higher % because pure alcohol evaporates clean.
