Bowing/Bending behind socket - Page 2

If you still have the stock plate give that a go, itll add to the rigdidity and hopefully insulate it from shorting,i would give that a go before purchasing a new one, that way you can troubleshoot if its the board or the plate.

On a side note, may I ask what you are using to 'Heat' the board. I buy motherboards regularly, Asus and Gigabyte. All of them are warped out of the box to some extent. I had thought of gently heating the back of the board with a heatgun to see if that would straighten them.

The stock plate is made to be screwed into, whereas the waterblock plate passivly takes a nut/bolt combo, so they're incompatible. I put four plastic washers/spacers between the plate and the board, raising it a bit, hopefully this works .. ... @mothman - I'm quite a bit overclocked and the socket gets toasty on it's own, a run of Prime95 will heat it enough to get some moveable leverage .. ...
